For the Record : PARASITE author Stephen Boyer slanders Me today.
I just want to make a statement for the record... A person Stephen Boyer, who I allowed to stay in my loft / home for over 6 months is now making untrue claims about me; today he said I threatened him, when I most definitely did not.
(in Bushwick , I've found from previous experience, even a personal death threat is not taken seriously by the police - at least when we *were death threatened a few years ago - nothing was done )
That be, as it may. I never threatened him.. FWIW..
He's either delusional or a seriously convincing less than candid informant and speaker of un-truths. He was very cruel to me as soon as he found out I was serious about not wanting him in my Loft.. Nothing personal.. , but I needed the room. He claims he has my threats against him on tape .. Show me!
I knew the man was someone who sometimes spoke in exaggeration to put himself in a good light - I've caught him in several , less than candid moments, over the months.. I've been telling him I needed him to be out by March 23rd. . I notified him six months ago; as soon as I realized he could not be permanent as a house mate.
He claimed he would have a trial period of two months to see if it worked out and that he would help me four hours per week - which he never did. The trial period didn't work out, but he didn't leave.
He claimed I notified him every other day, by text, of his deadline of March 23rd.
which is an exaggeration to the point of utter untruth.. I reminded him all of twice.. I left him alone about it, since I figured he was an adult.
He claimed he gave me $200 for an electric bill.
Not true for any given month.
He never gave me more than 60 or 80 - his share, per month.
He claimed he spent hours getting me ready for a Tarot Reading Event (un - requested BTW)
An exaggeration - he spent 20 minutes at the most.
He assured me he didn't want to live here and was trying to move, yet he told a mutual acquaintance that he wasn't going to leave..He also had his friend staying here with him all the time, which I generously gave my permission for. (I actually do like his friend and feel a bit sorry his friend has gotten himself involved with someone I consider quite cruel.) . His friend can't come back as of today. It's for legal reasons, nothing personal.. I actually prefer his friend to him.
After he broke my computer - wiped the hard drive, promised he would retrieve the data - and then went back on the promise - I told him, again, he must leave ASAP. But to be on the nice side I would give him until March 23rd before I would , by necessity, get a Marshall., a sheriff, to make him leave..if he did not leave sooner
..So I gave him loads of time to find a place to go!. And since he apparently did not do that, I had to serve him papers and will have to get a judge's order and then a marshal, if he continues to stay.
Which I finally started the long process of doing.
Apparently, to his big surprise.. Now he's threatening to counter - sue me ... for "abuse"?
I told him to go ahead, though I *never abused him..
I let him stay at my place as a guest for over six months and he had no respect for me when I asked him to leave many months ago now. And he had no respect for breaking my things, claiming that he is going to give money for it - not going through with the payment, i.e. keeping his word, and then accusing *me of making money off of *him
Anyway, for the record, as far as I can tell, the man gurgitates unremitting and unrepentant exaggerations. And claims I'm abusing him, when I allowed him to live at my place as a guest over the winter... He likes to play "poor me" / the victim, as I see it, and maybe has mental health issues? Who knows?... But he's such a charming personality, when he wants to be, and "drama queen" - with large numbers of folks suckering into his sad stories (as I did) .. its necessary I call attention to his claim I abused him, which is totally untrue, here and now... For The Record.
Just a coincidence his book is called "Parasite?"
"Parasite" "Bad News" ex - friend... In court today.
He's libeling me on Facebook. He even, so he told the Court's Attourney, went behind my back to the owner of the building and the neighbors with his complaints about me? So he claimed..
I'm not exactly a "landlord." It's not like I'm renting out property I own, for profit. He living with me, in my space... And he's thinks he's entitled to continue... And I'm the oppressor, according to his "Occupy Wall St." Anarchist, (either put - on or actual delusion), for not letting him live with me - for nothing.
Not only did I not swindle him , I let him stay at my Loft for 6 months rent free... He said we would be on a trial basis for 2 months, that did not work out, and he said he would find a new place and leave... That was in August 2013.
He affirmed several times that was going to leave, and when I reminded him that I had told him initially he had six months to find a new place and if he didn't get a place by then , I would have to get a Marshall to evict him, he got really angry and hostile and attacked me to my son, trying to make me look like a fool / (and told an untruth), claiming I text-ed him every other day with that message. He also claimed to my face that I texted him "every other day" about the matter... I knew I hadn't. Was he trying to "gaslight" me , or what?
Everything was fine , as far as he was concerned, including not paying me, as he promised, for breaking my computer - which I had lent him...and it was fine with him, to complain (in error) to my son, and to my neighbor also, that I cheated him on the electric bill , when I did not.
That is , of course, 'til I gave him notice , in writing, that he had to leave... then I became this disgusting person, who he couldn't stand, and who was seemingly the most terrible person on Earth; If you could believe his stories and emotional presentation.
Only when I moved to make him leave, after six months warning - I had told him and we had a standing agreement for over six month - only after he got the written notice, did I become the bad person. Before that he lived with me, for free, very happily.
I did not take money from him - because I expected and wanted for him to leave. Also, he was my friend. And I thought I would give him a gift of a free place to stay for 6 months - or until he left, which he insisted he wanted to do.
Now he claimed I stalk him: , telling the Courts Attorney he needs a restraining order against me.. Saying I follow him to his poetry readings to spread nasty rumors about him - which is strictly false.
He claims he went to the owners of the building with his complaints about me.
And he claimed he wanted a restraining order against me , as thought I was a danger to him.
When he asked for the restraining order, the Court Attorney just said, "Just leave, if she is a danger to you."
Anyway, I have to write this all out since I can't let his accusation that I "swindled" him stand , publicly ,without a reply. My impression is that he is just immature and feels the need to wreak revenge. Perhaps he has a built up anger store and just lets it discharge on me since I'm not giving him what he wants?
But really, he has thousands of friends and followers in the poetry and literary world and I really can't let his accusation against me stand without my denial; And I consider his actions against me libel.. I believe he does slander me too.
Also, when he kept insisting he had paid me rent... The Judge just said " She doesn't want you there. You have to leave. This isn't about rent. "
Now I am a member of the oppression class since I won't let him live with me.
How many people want to take him in? Is he *my responsibility ? I think I did my part in sheltering "Bad News" poets, for nothing.. It was my charitable activity... for someone I thought was a friend. OMG was I conned..
I call him "Bad News" because I thought he was my friend, let him into my "house" and he turned on me and my family in a way all of us would characterize as vicious. And I am actually afraid of him, since he was , to my ken, totally unpredictable. He is very adroit in his presentation of the world, as he sees it, and apparently "believes his own PR" and in that, he is super convincing to others. That's why I felt the need to reply to what he has written publicly about me.
Still funny his book is called "Parasite." You bring him into your home , then he tries to move in for good[ went to the Loft tenants meeting to see what his rights to my Loft were ] ; tries to get you in trouble with the owners and the neighbors, and his Facebook crowd.
But a parasite only sucks ur blood. It does it to live... Stephen didn't need to hurt me by trying to turn my family and friends against me.
I assume it was just for revenge [for asking him to leave?] and not because he actually needed my blood to live.. And it was a discharged of pent up anger?..and I got to be the lightening rod.?
