Aretha Franklin might lose her house:

An attorney’s mistake caused Aretha Franklin’s $700,000 mansion in Detroit to slip into foreclosure over $445 in 2005 taxes and late fees. But Aretha Franklin, who owes a total of $19,192 in back taxes on the property through 2007, said she plans to pay up and reclaim it by the March 31 deadline.

“It was a mere oversight on my attorney’s part to notify me. It will be taken care of immediately and thank you for making me aware of it.”

Franklin risked losing a 1927 Detroit mansion to tax collectors over $162 in 2005 taxes and $283 in interest and fees. The foreclosure judgment was entered earlier this month, and records show Franklin owes $18,746 in back taxes and fees for the 2006 and 2007 tax years, but foreclosure proceedings on those debts wouldn’t begin until next year.

Maybe if Aretha quit spending all her money on furs and food full of hydrogenated oils, she would be on top of her payments.

    A $700,000 mansion? Wonder what THAT looks like.

  • hfranklinj

    She will not lose her home. I’ve dealt with real estate several years now and this happens very often and in most cases over small amounts. It all accounts to human error. Not even news worthy as was the distasteful post.

    1. Put the fork down (you’re done)

    2. Let’s go shopping for some age appropriate clothing and a bra. (they come in all sizes)

    3. When you have to use that much material it is no longer a dress.
