Seems Bernard Bey has issues with his childhood and his past memories of such. Yes, friends…he says he’s had a troubled childhood and he wants to make it right now by getting even with those that he claims caused him to be in a victom-hood state of mind…so he decides to sue!
Now dudes and dudettes…I’m quite sure there are millions across this land that have had a horrendous trials and tribulations though their childhoods. While most grow up fast, move on and adjust, they proceed to go on in life with pride attempting to achieve their goals while doing so. – But not Bernard Bey…check out what he did for his ‘Cry Me A River‘ scenario.
This is definitely one of the oddest lawsuits ever. 32-year-old Bernard Anderson Bey from Brooklyn, New York filed a lawsuit against his parents in which he is suing them for $200,000 for not loving him nor his siblings enough in order for them to become productive citizens in this country. He claims that he and his siblings were raised under extremely poor conditions and the lack of love given to them hindered them from being motivated and focused enough to strive to achieve great things.
His parents, Bernard and Vickie Manley live in a housing project in Brooklyn and have very little money, so if he was to be awarded with the $200k, they would have to mortgage their home to pay him properly. Bernard hopes to buy two Dominos pizza franchises with the money and support his family from there.
Bernard addressed various forms of neglect and abuse he claims he suffered in the lawsuit.
“Our whole family is really poor, and my father doesn’t care about the situation. I feel unloved and abandoned.”
He claimed that his father beat him as a child and would often call him a “bastard” and “motherf**ker”, and that he also did drugs right in front of him when he was a child. Both of his parents responded by dismissing his attempts to feed off of them, and his mother in particular feels as though he needs to own up to his responsibilities as an adult. His mother Vickie stated:
“I live in the projects. You want to sue me? What’s next, you coming to shoot up my door? He’s 32 years old. That speaks for itself. Welcome to America. Everyone in America has the same opportunity. Don’t blame the parents at this point. The choice is yours. You’re an adult.”
Bernard Manley, who is actually Bernard’s stepfather, not his biological father, only had this to say:
“He’s not related to me. He’s not my son.”
Apparently Bernard’s siblings recognize him as being crazy and a pathological liar, which will play a heavy role in the outcome of this case.
