What's it called when a child twists the truth to make others out to be horrible to them?

My son (who is now 21 yrs. old) only sees the bad in me.  I've given him everything I possible could.  I worked 2 and 3 jobs to keep him in a nice house in a nice neighborhood, bought him the best of clothes (better than I ever had!), even cashed in my retirement to purchase a nice SUV so he wouldn't be embarrassed when I drove him to school in high school since the old pick-up truck I had for winter driving (4 wheel drive) was used primarily for us riding the quads I purchased for us to have fun.  I know I spoiled him.  He was my only child.  I wanted to give him everything I never had.  My dad told me not to spoil him and I couldn't understand why he would say that.  NOW I KNOW !!  He is the most disrespectful, unappreciative young man I know!  His father (who was an attorney) and would not work also had a gambling problem and when he didn't have money to blow in the casino would charge his gambling on high-interest credit cards!  Consequently, I couldn't take "all that" and we divorced when our son was around 10 years old. I made sure he was in a special program for divorced kids at school called "Banana Splits", I took him to a counselor to find out why he was so hateful (since I figured it had something to do with the divorce - what else?  He had everything!)  I thought he would grow out of it.  Now he twists the truth to make me out to be a horrible person and says I did nothing for him and I always tell him he can't succeed, etc.  I never told him he can't succeed!  I remind him every once in awhile to watch who he hangs around with and not to do anything that some of his friends do.  I can tell by looking at their eyes what they do!  He thinks I owe him respect.  He doesn't think I show him any respect and so that's why he has no respect for me.  I did my best for him.  We always went to church when he was young.  He was an alter boy, attended religious instruction classes once a week, etc.
