Jim Marchese Allegedly Refuses To Pay For Son’s College Unless He Lives “According to His Standards” and Admits He’s Choosing To Be Gay!

Jim Marchese‘s oldest son James is coming out against his father with some shocking allegations. Or maybe not so shocking if you’ve read any of Jim’s posts on Twitter.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey alumn’s oldest son started a GoFundMe account to raise money for his college tuition. James claims that his father allegedly refuses to pay for his college unless he is straight, dates women, and admits that he’s choosing to be gay.

James explains, “At the beginning of 2018, my father “found out” I was gay. This began two weeks of mental abuse that led to me being removed from his home when I told my Mom (her and my father are divorced) and went to court with her. Since this time, my father has been slowly cutting ties with me until I “live according to his standards.” Essentially, this meant – and still means – that I have to be “straight” and date women while “admitting” that I chose to be gay so that I could get something out of it from my mother. With this, my father has refused to help in paying for any schooling because he believes I have to live in his home and follow his preferred life-style to be good enough to receive any financial assistance with school.”

These allegations shouldn’t seem too surprising considering in December 2018 Jim tweeted that “no straight man wants his son to be gay.”

“So true, NO STRAIGHT MALE wants his son to be gay. A gay son is a curse that takes away your #family traditions #heritage #lgtbiq is a parents nightmare that destroys families. Ruins holidays like #Christmas #KevinHart we support you! #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder,” Jim tweeted.

Andy Cohen responded to Jim’s tweet and asked fans to “pray for his poor kids.”

Meanwhile, RHONJ star Joe Gorga also criticized Jim’s tweets.

“That’s what makes him shallow! He’s an embarrassment to the show [RHONJ], especially with that comment. I’m happy he’s off the show,” Joe said. 

Adding, “If my sons were gay I would embrace them and love them.”

With that said here are some more of Jim’s tweets about the LGBTQ community.
