They locked him up and took his house. Damn.
O.J. Simpson’s Home To Be Sold At Foreclosure Auction
According to Mail Online
The lavish Florida home where O.J. Simpson lived for nearly a decade before heading to prison will be auctioned off online, it has emerged.
A Miami-Dade County judge signed off the deal on Wednesday, two years after JP Morgan Chase filed to foreclose the disgraced NFL star’s four-bedroom four-bathroom home in Kendall.
The bank will take possession of the house on Tuesday and it will go on sale online on a auction website on October 29, the South Florida Business Journal reported.
He had stopped paying his mortgage in 2010 and owed the bank $892,283.11, including the $660,000-principal, fees, interests and court costs. He also owed four years in taxes, the judge ruled.
Simpson bought the 4,334-square-foot house, which also has a swimming pool, in 2000 for $575,000, but was financially destroyed by court orders related to his acquittal for the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1997.
While he was found not guilty, he was found liable and a Los Angeles judge ordered him to pay $33.5 million for the wrongful death of Goldman. The families are still trying to collect the money.
After the ruling, he moved to Florida and bought the home as the state’s laws protected a primary residence from being seized to pay off a civil judgment, RadarOnline reported.
Karma is a beyotch.
