(Scroll down for video) A homeless man is blaming his misfortunes on his parents so he decided to sue them in court, according to court proceedings in Brooklyn, New York.

The homeless man from Brooklyn is suing his parents, claiming they have been unsupportive and indifferent to his growing problems.

Bernard Bey is seeking $200,000 in damages from his mother and father.
“I feel like my parents don’t love me, as they are not supportive, are emotionally abusive and verbally abusive,” the 32-year-old, told a local radio news station. “We do not have a family bond that a normal family should have,” he added.

Bey thinks that his parents should take a mortgage on their Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstone and use the money to help him open a Domino Pizza franchise.

“Why not start a family business and start earning wealth for ourselves? No person would sit by and let assets deteriorate,” Bey said. “Why did they do that? Why live off the state, public assistance and food stamps. Why allow children to live that way?” Bey asked.

His mother said her son has never worked a day in his life and should go out and get a job.
But Bey said his mother is lying and that he has been working nonstop since he was 16-years-old.
“I have an associate’s degree in business administration and accounting. I graduated in 2009,” Bey said.

Bey now has the dream of becoming a recording mogul.
“I hope I can reach some kind of resolution with my parents so we don’t have to go through this at all. We could just work together,” Bey said.

Family members said that Bey has psychological problems.
