A couple from Michigan are being sued by their own son for destroying a porn collection he says was worth tens of thousands of dollars. The distraught son is seeking some $86,000 in damages.
Trouble began after the man had moved back in with his parents for about 10 months in 2016 following his divorce. Later, when he had moved out and his possessions were delivered to his new address, he noticed one major absence: 12 moving boxes packed with porn movies were gone.
He initially called the cops to press criminal charges against his parents, but the prosecutor didn’t pursue the case. The father allegedly admitted destroying the items, according to court documents seen by WXMI, but said he did it for his son’s own good.
In a terse email exchange between father and son, the former allegedly wrote: “Believe it or not, one reason for why I destroyed your porn was for your own mental and emotional health… I would have done the same if I had found a kilo of crack cocaine.
“Someday, I hope you will understand,” he reportedly added.
His son clearly felt differently, launching a civil action over the “vindictive” destruction. He claims the collection was worth almost $29,000 and includes some rare and out-of-print movies. The names of those involved in the lawsuit have not been made public as it’s a civil case.
