‘American Idol’ Winner Fantasia Barrino May Lose Home

The singer becomes the latest celebrity housing crisis victim.


Looks like another celebrity is in danger of losing a home:

From The Associated Press:

"American Idol" winner Fantasia Barrino is again finding that, like the title of her autobiography, life is not a fairy tale.

Court documents obtained Tuesday show one of Barrino's houses in Charlotte is up for auction after a company said Barrino failed to repay money it loaned her to cover her taxes in 2006.

The Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office is scheduled to sell the home, valued at $1.1 million, in January. The home isn't in foreclosure, but rather is being used to compensate the company that loaned Barrino money to cover taxes.
