Former NFL Player Faces Foreclosure After Blowing Off Lawsuit Over Unpaid Bills
Ex-NFL star Chad Johnson has blown off a legal battle over unpaid bills on his Florida mansion and now the judge presiding over the case is close to ordering the pad be sold off at foreclosure due to the football star not even showing up to court.
The Long Lake Ranches West Homeowners Association sued Johnson back in May in Broward County, Fl. Court, accusing the former NFL star of owing them over $3,500 in fees and costs related to his pad. The association demanded the court allow them to foreclose on the property and sell it off at auction to get the money owed from the sale off the home.
The suit seeks to have the court allow them to kick Johnson out of his home and sell off the property at public auction.
Johnson purchased the Davie, FL pad back in 2005 for $1,365,000 – and it was also the scene of the infamous head butting arrest with ex-wife Evelyn Lozada.
Then on December 16th, the homeowners association filed a motion for default judgment against Johnson because he’s blown off the case for several months despite being served with the lawsuit.
The association is pleading with the judge presiding over the case to grant them their motion for default judgment and allow them to kick Johnson out of his home and sell it off at auction ASAP.
The judge has yet to make a decision.
