There are messy breakups and then there’s erecting a giant middle finger bronze garden sculpture aimed at your ex-wife.
Alan Markovitz, a renowned strip club owner living in Detroit, recently had the giant hand sculpture installed in the back garden of his Orchard Lake home.
Apparently the 59-year-old was angered when his wife Lea Tuohy (now ex) of two years had an affair with a man he knew.
Markovitz reportedly spent $7,000 on the 12-foot-high garden ‘ornament’ which is illuminated by a spotlight at night.
Twitter user Lenka Tuohy, believed to be the daughter of Markovitz’s ex-wife, tweeted a picture of the statue earlier this week.
She wrote: ‘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 fav tub is in my mom’s bathroom which faces out towards tif and alan’s house,’ she added.
The entrepreneur claims it is a ‘coincidence’ he ended up in a house next door to his ex-wife, who is believed to have moved into the property when they divorced.
‘I’m so over her,’ Markovitz said. ‘This is about him. This is about him not being a man.’
He added: ‘He broke the Man Code. He’s a total freakin’ asshole. Real men don’t do that to another guy.’
Markovitz unveiled the sculpture to loud cheers at a party last week.
