soccer. We'll begin with that 30-year-old who's living at home with his mom and dad who want him out even taking him to court over it. Now, a New York judge ordered him to get out. ABC's gio Benitez is there where he spoke with the man. Good morning, gio. Reporter: Hey there, Michael, good morning. This is quite the family drama. No doubt about it. The parents are basically saying if we can't get him out maybe the judge can. This morning, 30-year-old Michael Rotondo is speaking out hours after a New York judge ordered him to move out of his parents' home where he's lived rent-free for the past eight years. You'll make it so these people can just three me out instead of letting me stay. I'm not bothering them living here. Reporter: These are the people now suing Rotondo. His very own parents, trying to evict him. On Tuesday Rotondo acting as his own attorney claiming that his parents listening in court should have given him six months to find alternate housing. A point the judge called outrageous. I'm granting the eviction. I think the notice is sufficient. I'm not a burden to them in the home. They don't provide laundry or food. It's really a moot point for them to seek me to be ejected. Reporter: In court documents mark and Christina Rotondo say they tried for months to get their unemployed son to move out sending him these five letters asking him to leave and giving him $1100 so he could find a place to stay. And one of the things that they mentioned in that letter in several of those letters is we want to you go and get a job. Right. Have you dong that? No, I have -- I've -- I got a business that I get income from and I'm expecting that I will be able to overwhelmingly -- I can't imagine being here past three months. Reporter: He say his parents asked him to move after he lost custody of his son eight months ago when he needed them most. After you lose your son and then shortly afterwards it's like, hey, I lost my son and get out of the house. I was devastated when a lost my son. People are considering I want to stay here forever and don't want to pay rent. No, I don't like living here at all. Reporter: And believe it or not he still doesn't know when he has to move out. The judge has to decide that. But, you know, we saw how they didn't speak to each other in court so I wondered if they spoke to each other at home. He says not at all. Guys. Oh, gosh, well, he keeps -- he keeps referring to them as these people. Those people. I just wish they could have resolved this without going so public and going to court. Actually really sad situation. It is. Thanks to gio for that.
