The Celebrity: Keith Sweat
When He Faced Foreclosure: May 2012
Why It Happened: Sweat defaulted on a $450,000 mortgage that a bank gave him back in 2004 to purchase a home in Detroit. So the bank foreclosed his home. But the drama didn't end there. In addition to taking his house, they also sued Sweat for more than $250,000 a short time later when his home only sold for $200,000 at auction. They want him to pay the remaining $253,000 owed on the original mortgage and have attempted to put a lien on a property he owns in Georgia in order to get it.
