Fantasia Barrino is losing her million dollar home while this article is being written up about her, and reports are saying she is in denial:

CHARLOTTE, NC – Fantasia Barrino – who faces the loss of her $1.3 million home here in a debtor’s auction set for noon Monday – is apparently ignoring the looming legal threat, officials told The Post yesterday. The inspirational “American Idol” winner owes a Florida credit company $65,000 – money she borrowed in 2006 to pay back taxes she owed the IRS. The singer made a $10,000 payment in August 2007. But she never paid the rest, so the company won the right in court last month to auction off her house for the balance. Mecklenburg County sheriff’s deputies, who are responsible for enforcing civil court orders, have tried at least a dozen times to reach Barrino at the home and by phone, said Sgt. J.W. England, a supervisor of civil judgments. A deputy spoke a couple of times to Barrino’s mother, but never reached the star, who appears to be ignoring attempts to save her house, officials said. “We try very hard and give the defendant every opportunity to pay,” England said yesterday. Over the course of about a year, Barrino has never responded to court documents, and no lawyer ever appeared in court to represent her, said Larry Goldman, a Charlotte attorney representing the credit company, Broward Energy Management. “I certainly don’t want anyone to lose their house,” Goldman said. “But as far as I’m concerned, we have a judgment.” Barrino, 24, has made no payments and filed no documents since The Post reported a court-ordered lien on the property in Charlotte’s upscale Piper Glen neighborhood last month. Goldman said he never heard from Barrino’s representatives until after the judge’s order. He said he has since spoken twice with reps who haven’t offered to resolve the debt but said they’d get back in touch before next Monday. “My client has continuously asked me why they won’t just pay it,” Goldman said. “I just don’t have an answer.” Barrino’s attorney, Gary Greenberg declined to comment yesterday.
“It’s my practice not to talk about client matters,” he said. Barrino’s agent, Erin Culley, referred questions to the singer’s publicist but was unable to provide contact information for that person.

When will we as a people learn that you must be conservative to preserve your wealth for the future? We’re praying for you Tasia.

    Why would someone buy a home in CHARLOTTE in excess of 1 million dollars, when you can buy something superstar sufficient way under $500k…Some of these artist need to stick wit Jew accountant/financial advisors in their corners…

    Charlotte, NC has quite a few affluent neighborhoods. The one where Tasia’s home is has MANY, MANY people whose earnings rate them from upper middle class and beyond. (You’d really be surprised to know who some of her neighbors are!!)

    Besides the fact that she has ANOTHER home, I have yet to see (foreclosures are public information) where her home is up for closure!

    Now, it might be a slip of the eye on my part yet at the same time, I understood that it’s NOT the mortgage payments she’s behind on, it’s the property taxes!!

    It would be nice if BOSSIP reported accurate information.

    Besides–if she does lose this one, it’s not like she doesn’t have several more!

    PLUS—if she has a sound tax preparer she can write it off as a loss!

    Shit–at the end of the day, Tasia won’t be in the streets!! The girl has more places to rest her head!!!

    Real talk!!!


    She looks ewwwwwww….

    Hello, upper numbers….

    I don’t think she made a bad decision in purchasing real estate. Every-single-investor who’s worth his weight in gold will tell you that real estate is one of the most sound investments you can make.

    Just my opinion.
