Man Buys House Next to Ex-Wife and Erects Giant Middle Finger Sculpture

Nothing says “messy break-up” like buying the house next door to your ex and aiming a giant bronze middle finger at them from the garden.

A wealthy strip club owner from Detroit, USA recently installed the 12 foot high ornament in the garden of his Orchard Lake home, a house he reportedly recently bought to spite his ex wife, Lea Tuohy who lived next door.

Alan Markovitz, 59 reportedly paid $7000 (around £4,300) for the large metal extremity, local publication Deadline Detroit reported. He unveiled it to vast applause during a house party he had recently.

The couple of two years apparently split after Tuohy had an affair with a man Markovitz knew. 

Obviously he wasn’t best pleased, speaking to Deadline Detroit he said: “ I’m so over her, this is about him. This is about him not being a man.

‘He broke the Man Code. He’s a total freakin’ a*****e. Real men don’t do that to another guy.’

Lenka Touhy (believed to be the daughter in the situation) tweeted this photo: 

She later went on to add: “How psychotic do you have to be to buy the house directly 
next to your ex wife and then put a statue up like that?!?! Real classy Alan

‘Its hard for me to enjoy my baths now because my fave tub is in my mom’s bathroom which faces out towards Tif and Alan’s house,’

So next time you want to get back at your ex remember be creative because this is going to take some beating.
