‘Tasia sets the record straight about saving her home from foreclosure:
Former American Idol star Fantasia Barrino has dismissed rumors former mentor Simon Cowell saved her house from foreclosure. The singer saved her $1.3 million (£870,000) North Carolina home last month, just days before it was due to be sold at auction, after reaching a deal with financiers.
The National Enquirer suggested American Idol judge Cowell came to Barrino’s rescue with a loan to help her clear her debts. But the star insists she paid her own bills. Barrino says, “That’s not true. I’ve been working hard for five years. Don’t believe everything you hear.” But she jokes she could still do with a little help from the British music mogul, adding, “But if I could get Simon’s number…”
It’s definitely good news that matters were resolved in that regard. However, if old girl would’ve spent a little more cash on ‘Hooked on Phonics’ and other literacy aids, she may not have found herself in that predicament in the first place. Those mortgage documents ‘n’ sh*t probably looked like Sanskrit to ole girl.
