If you thought financial problems only accompanied Suge Knight, Damon Dash, or Michael Jackson, then you have it twisted. Fantasia is having housing trouble:

American Idol’s third season winner, Fantasia Barrino, is about to be evicted from one of her two Charlotte, North Carolina, homes — according to the blog. According to property records, the 6-bedroom mansion has been foreclosed on. Unless the 8-time Grammy-nominated singer can make necessary payments, the 6,232 square-foot home will be auctioned off on Jan. 12. Barrino, a single mother to daughter Zion, purchased the home, located on Bevington Place, in March 2007. The price was $1.3 million. Her other house, also located in Charlotte, was purchased in July 2004 for $740,000 and records show it’s not in financial trouble. Her recent tune, a duet with Jennifer Hudson called “I’m His Only Woman,” was just nominated for a Grammy.

Half the people who purchase homes don’t understand what they are signing, so just imagine that poor thang being illiterate and trying to understand all those forms. We’ve already started praying for lil’ NeNe.

    this might be intentional people walk away from property all the time,probably advised by her attorney or accountant you never know. Looks bad to common folk but doesn’t mean she is destitute!

    She needs a financial advisor. I hope she comes out with some new music. Tasia knows she can’t take off. She has to keep working to stay relevant.

    What happened to that money from her first 2 albums? The movie about her story? The color Purple$$$$$$? That is crazy to blow all of your money? YOu have to spend wisely, and save.
