South African Parents Kick Son Out At the Age of 35 - Begs Him to Come Home 2 Weeks Later…

A MILLENNIAL college drop-out, 35, has been ordered out of his parents' house by a judge after they demanded he be evicted.

Christina and Mark Rotondo had sent "jobless" son Michael five notices this year asking him to leave.

They said Michael — who reportedly quit his engineering course because he "couldn't hack the math" — didn't pay rent at their home in Cape Town, South Africa.

Rotondo claims that he is too busy fighting over custody of his son to get a full-time job, according to MailOnline.

Initially, the Rotondos tried to get him evicted, but then learned that this would have to go through court ejection proceedings because he's a family member.

The couple and their son appeared at Cape Town High Court on Tuesday.

During the hearing, state supreme court justice Donald Greenwood tried to convince Michael to leave his parents' house of his own accord.

But Rotondo, who represented himself in court, said he was entitled to six more months at their home - a demand Greenwood branded "outrageous".

The judge then served him with an eviction order.

Rotondo argued that his parents failed to give him a reason why he's being kicked out.

He further claimed that, in the eight years he lived in the house, he had never been expected to contribute to household expenses.

After the hearing, he revealed his issues with his parents related to a custody battle with his son.

He told MailOnline that he lost custody of his son in September - and that the boy now lives with his mother.

The site also claims Rotondo is suing former employers Best Buy for R 4M in damages and court costs.

He reportedly says he was unfairly sacked for refusing to work on Saturdays because they were his visitation days with his child.

The first note Christina and Mark sent to Michael, on February 2, read: "Michael, After a discussion with your mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately."

“You have 14 days to vacate. You will not be allowed to return. We will take whatever actions are necessary to enforce this decision.”

According to court documents, Michael - who turns 36 in July - is "jobless" with a busted Volkswagen Passat.

A further letter sent by the Rotondos warned: "Michael Joseph Rotondo, You are hereby evicted effective immediately.

“You have heretofore been our guest and there is no lease or agreement that gives you any right to stay here without our consent.

“A legal enforcement procedure will be instituted immediately if you do not leave by 15 March 2018.”

Three more notes were sent over the course of six weeks — with one even offering Michael R 13,000 so you can find a place to stay” and another suggesting options to either fix or get rid of his broken car.

Agreeing with Mr Rotondo's parents, Judge Greenwood said on Tuesday: "I want you out of that household".

Rotondo replied: "That's outrageous. I don't see why we can't just wait a little bit for me to leave the house".

He later said he plans to appeal the ruling.
