And yet another celebrity facade is facing the sledgehammer. According to Crain’s Business Chicago, Kelly is looking at a $2.9 million foreclosure lawsuit on his Chicago mansion over claims that he’s failed to make mortgage payments on the home since June 2010.

The suit was filed by JPMorgan Chase Bank over the massive home (six full bathrooms, seven half bathrooms and a four-car garage to be exact) Kelly had designed 11 years ago. In Kelly’s defense he reportedly hasn’t dwelled in his old crib for over a year and ceased mortgage payments in an attempt to force the bank to negotiate a loan modification.

We’ll see who wins this battle.
