A wealthy Michigan man is proving that women aren’t always the ones left scorned after a bad relationship, as he has allegedly purchased a house next door to his cheating ex-wife and even put a statue out front to let her know how he really feels about her now that all is said and done.
A Michigan man has reportedly gone to Internet-ready lengths in order to troll his ex-wife with a daily reminder of his feelings towards her.
According to a person claiming to be the ex-wife’s daughter, the crazy-wealthy Bloomfield Hills man, identified only as “Alan,” allegedly purchased the house next door to his ex, and proceeded to move in with his daughter Tiffany.
He then went a step further and purchased an expensive bronze statue of a middle finger, which he placed on the back porch and aimed at his ex-wife’s house.
As if that weren’t quite enough passive aggression, Alan ensured the statue was visible 24/7 by shining a spotlight on it after dark.
A previous version of this article referred to the person identified Tiffany as Markovitz’s “girlfriend,” but according to Deadline Detroit, she is his daughter from a previous relationship.
Here is the relevant paragraph:
Markovitz has a 17-year-old daughter from a previous relationship who lives with him. He was married for two years to a woman he met at a friend’s birthday party at an Auburn Hills restaurant. But they recently divorced. He said his wife, a native of Slovakia, was cheating on him with someone he knew. She moved in with the guy two days after moving out of the house.
Wouldn’t be surprised to see more of these popping up in front yards everywhere now that this story has gone public. Maybe the ex-wife should ask him where he got it from and order one for her yard…
