Man Sues Mom, Dad for Trashing His $29K Porn Collection

Son wants parents to pony up nearly $87,000.

Oh no they didn’t! An Indiana man identified only as “Charlie” is taking his parents to court after accusing them of destroying what he considers a very high-priced collection of pornography that he values at nearly $29,000.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the man filed the lawsuit on Wednesday, April 10, in the Southern Division of the U.S. District Court in Michigan, and is seeking nearly $87,000 in damages.

Citing the court documents, the Detroit Free Press reports that the man was “kicked out” of his parents home in August 2017. He had been living with his mom and dad for about 10 months after splitting from his wife, Fox 17 in west Michigan reports.

Three months later in November 2017, his parents brought Charlie’s belongings to his new home in Indiana. This is when Charlie realized his huge stash of adult materials was missing. He alleges that his parents admitted to destroying his porn, and included with his lawsuit an email his dad sent to him regarding the XXX materials.

“We counted 12 moving boxes full of pornography plus two boxes of ‘sex toys’ as you call them,” his dad allegedly wrote. “We began that day the process of destroying them and it took quite a while to do so. … I did you a big favor by getting rid of all this stuff for you.”

According to Fox 17, Charlie called the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office and filed a police report over the destroyed porn. In it, he valued his collection of adult materials at $28,940.72. His lawsuit, as the Detroit Free Press reports, claims that it would cost more than $40,000 to replace the pornography his parents destroyed.

A month after calling police, Charlie and his dad spoke via email. In one message, according to Fox 17, his dad wrote: “Believe it or not, one reason for why I destroyed your porn was for your own mental and emotional health. I would have done the same if I had found a kilo of crack cocaine.”

His father also alleged in another email, per Fox 17, that Charlie had sold porno to students while in high school, adding: “I also warned you at the time that if I ever found pornography in my house again, I would destroy it.”

Per Fox 17, prosecutors have twice declined to file charges against Charlie’s parents.
