A Michigan man has become an instant hero to thousands and thousands of divorced people the world over.  He bought the house next door to his ex-wife and erected a middle finger statue in his yard!

It's a 12-foot-tall statue of the middle finger. Alan Markovitz, who moved into the home in Bloomfield Hills, said he never meant for the matter to be public. Markovitz said the story grabbed local media attention when his ex-wife's daughter posted a picture of the statue on twitter.

Markovitz owns three Detroit strip clubs and recently wrote a book that is reportedly turning into a TV series.

This story could be an episode in itself.
