Fantasia Loses Her House to the Bank
It’s long been said in the music industry that with “mo money” there are “mo problems.” Fantasia’s life is a living testament to this undeniable truth. TMZ is reporting that the singer’s home was in foreclosure proceedings, leading her to make plans to sell the house. She tried selling, but couldn’t get the market value that she’d paid for the home.
Originally, Fantasia tried selling the house for $800,000, which is half a million less than what she paid for it, but there were no biters on the deal. Finally, in a hint of desperation, Fantasia just gave the house back to the bank, meaning that she will probably get nothing back from her investment.
Fantasia has long been in the news for a variety of reasons, much of it having nothing to do with her amazing singing ability. Just two months ago, she was in the news after getting into a feud with Jet Magazine Editor Mitzi Miller, who joked that Fantasia was illiterate. Before that, a long string of odd personal and financial decisions seem to have put Fantasia’s life into the dog house. We hope she can learn and grow from her mistakes to one day have the life she thought she’d have once she became famous. But it all comes down to making better choices.
