T-Boz, Fantasia, AND Doug E Fresh in Foreclosure?!
I knew those dumb ass VH-1 "I Love" specials didn't pay well.
Via Pro Hip Hop:
"Doug E. Fresh...has been socked with three foreclosure actions by banks looking to collect more than $3.5 million in unpaid mortgages on a trio of his Harlem homes."
"The rapper, 46, also is being chased by American Express for nearly $60,000 in credit-card debt, and the IRS just slapped him with a $367,000 tax lien on top of more than $40,000 owed to the state tax collector, records show."
Now, be forewarned that I'm about 5 months behind on this story. Maybe President Obama would like to offer Mr Fresh a cabinet position with credentials like that?
T-Boz don't want no scrubs and claims not to be one while American Idol "star" (I use the term loosely) Fantasia will not discuss her personal finances with probing hip hop reporters. (source)
I don't blame her. It was bad enough that she allowed her life to be made into a really depressing Lifetime movie.
You did also catch that Ben Bernanke's Capitol Hill Secret Lair plummeted in value some time last year, right? As any CPA exam candidate who has taken Roger can tell you, that's called d-d-d-depreciation. And karma. Anyway.
Goes to show, no one is immune. So sad.
