No the title of this blog is not wrong and you do not need to rub your eyes. This guy Alan Markovitz bought a house DIRECTLY next door to his ex-wife and placed a bronze middle finger statue in the backyard facing her house! Crazy right? Then he goes a step further to ensure that statue is always seen from her house (even at night) he lights the statue up with a big broad spotlight.
Who is Alan Markovitz? Well he's the owner of some of Detroit's most popular Gentleman's Clubs and he's an accomplished author of the book entitled: Topless Prophet: The True Story of America's Most Successful Gentleman's Club Entrepreneur. Which is going to be turned into a Cinemax series in the near future.
But why? Why put this statue in the yard and go through all this trouble? Should be some of the questions on everybody's mind at this moment. Well read the article below via GAWKER that should explain his bitterness:
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.
"He broke the Man Code. He’s a total freakin’ asshole,” Markovitz says. “Real men don’t do that to another guy."
Well there you have it. I guess now your wonder who this woman is....Well I'll tell you! Her name is Lenka Tuohy. And she posted the pics on Twitter. I saw her tweets on GAWKER's site but her tweets have since been protected. I guess after her pictures have gone viral she didn't want anyone having access to her personal twitter. Understandable. Either way it seems Tuohy was casting her rod in too many ponds. But to be so callous as to cheat with someone her husband knew and was obviously close to. And then move into his house afterwards is the stupidest thing I've ever heard but its not unfamiliar. This happens all the time and it NEVER works out.
Ladies and Gents take note:
1- In relationships Karma is a BITCH! Whatever kind of hell you put into a relationship expect it to come back on you 10 fold! If you know you can't take the pain and heartache your causing then why would you put that on someone you love or like?
2- You lose them how you get them. Its a FACT. Never build a relationship on shaky ground. Make sure your relationship is built on a foundation of truth and trust. If a man is willing to sleep with you while in a relationship it doesn't speak much for his character and what he's about. Now don't get me wrong not all men who do this are bad people its just when you are willing to put your morals aside then what are you willing to do for the sake of saying you have someone. It sounds like you are very insecure and need some serious help.
3- Trust is Key! If you want any peace and tranquility in your relationship you have to have trust.
Anyway I think the statue is a little childish but its absolutely HILARIOUS! I'm sure after he gets over the initial shock of the way she left he'll take down the statue or move away. Other than it is what it is. But instead of putting up the statue he could have just put her on Shesahomewrecker.com! LOL I'm so messy!
Here's the question I pose:
Would you spend the money on a memento to torment or to tell off your spouse after they hurt you? Would it be worth it? Why?
