In 2013, a scorned man moved in to a home in Bloomfield Hills, MI — right next door to his ex-wife.

But things took an even stranger turn when the man erected a statue in his yard, pointed directly at the back patio where his ex and her new boyfriend lived.

However, this was not a piece of art intended to inspire or honor his former lover and her new lover.

Alan Markovitz, a wealthy author and strip club owner, spent $7000 commissioning a giant bronze statue of a giant middle finger, pointing from his house to theirs.

Wait until you see what the statue looks like during both the daytime and at night.

A couple years back, Alan Markovitz bought a house right next door to his unfaithful ex-wife and came up with a plot for revenge.

Alan claimed his ex-wife cheated on him with a man he knew and moved in with him just two days after they split.

As if that wasn't revengeful enough, Alan made sure the statue was fitted with spotlights at night so it could be seen 24/7 from his home in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

Alan, who is otherwise described as a considerate neighbor, never meant for his statue to make headlines. “I’m so over her,” he said. “This is about him [her new boyfriend]. This is about him not being a man.”
