Man moves into house next to ex-wife and builds 12-foot bronze MIDDLEFINGER statue
A Michigan strip club owner has bought the house next door to his ex-wife and erected a giant middle finger in the back yard. Alan Markovitz, who owns a series of strip clubs in Detroit, spent $7,000 erecting the 12 foot tall bronze statue facing the house owned by ex-wife Lea Tuohy.
The pictures were posted on Twitter by Tuohy's daughter, Lenka.
But he says the middle finger salute isn't aimed at her, but at her new partner - with whom she started an affair while she and Markovitz were still married.
Markovitz told a local newspaper "I'm so over her. This is about him. This is about him not being a man."
Markovitz wrote an autobiography, modestly entitled Topless Prophet: The True Story of America's Most Successful Gentleman's Club Entrepreneur.
He's set to star in an HBO reality TV show with the same title in the new year.
He bought the house after an estate agent coincidentally showed him the house next door to Luohy.
