Rotondo exclusively told DailyMail.com about not seeing his son after the boy's mother said that she feared the decision to kick the 30-year-old out of his parents' home would send him off the rails.
She predicted that his mental condition could deteriorate if he has to fend for himself - but Rotondo has claimed while he has a history of mental health problems, he was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia.
'I blame that doctor that diagnosed me with just trying to make a steady source of work for himself,' Rotondo told DailyMail.com when questioned about his schizophrenia diagnosis.
He added: 'So I'm denying that I was not now nor have I ever been a paranoid schizophrenic.'
Rotondo's case has gained worldwide attention since his parents Mark and Christina Rotondo took him to court last week to have him evicted from their four-bedroom house in Camillus, New York, a quiet commuter town just west of Syracuse.
