Man sues parents for destroying his Ksh.2M porn stash, wants Ksh.8M compensation

In Summary

  • Court documents, as seen by U.S-based media house Fox17, stated that the unnamed man moved back to his parents’ home in Grand Haven, Michigan, in October 2016 following a divorce from his wife.
  • In August 2017, however, he was kicked out following a dispute with his parents during which the police were called.
  • He then moved to Indiana where, in November 2017, his parents went to return his personal belongings which he had left at their home.

An American man now wants his parents to pay him $86,822 (Ksh. 8,768,153) in damages after they allegedly destroyed his pornography stash which he claims to be worth an estimated $28,940 (Ksh. 2,922,650).

Court documents, as seen by U.S-based media house Fox17, stated that the unnamed man moved back to his parents’ home in Grand Haven, Michigan, in October 2016 following a divorce from his wife.

In August 2017, however, he was kicked out following a dispute with his parents during which the police were called.

He then moved to Indiana where, in November 2017, his parents went to return his personal belongings which he had left at their home.

On closer inspection, the man realized that his massive “valuable” porn collection was missing. When he later inquired about them, his parents — in an email – informed him that they destroyed all of it.

“We counted 12 moving boxes full of pornography plus two boxes of “sex toys” as you call them. We began that day the process of destroying them and it took quite a while to do so,” read the email in part, according to Fox17.

The petitioner then filed a police report at the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office but the prosecutor’s office declined to file charges against his parents.

He then wrote an email back to his parents questioning their motives saying; “If you had a problem with my belongings, you should have stated that at the time and I would have gone elsewhere. Instead you choose to keep quiet and behave vindictively.”

His father wrote back: “Believe it or not, one reason for why I destroyed your porn was for your own mental and emotional heath. I would have done the same if I had found a kilo of crack cocaine. Someday, I hope you will understand.”

The man has since launched a civil lawsuit against his parents over the incident and is seeking compensation.
