28-Year-Old’s Family Says He Needs To Grow Up. He Says, ‘You’re Just Not Listening’
Rachel says her adult stepson, Devan, has “failed to launch” and behaves more like he’s 15 than 28. Devan’s mother, Valrie, claims he’s prone to fits of rage and says she has to “walk on eggshells” around him. Devan’s father, Howard, says that until recently, he’s supported Devan financially all his adult life and cannot understand why he doesn’t want to do things for himself.
“If my family thinks that I need to grow up, then maybe you’re just not listening,” says Devan, claiming that he pays all the bills that he can with what little money he has. Watch the video above to hear what else Devan admits to spending his money on.
