The Celebrity: Fantasia
When She Faced Foreclosure: April 2013
Why It Happened: For the past five years or so, Fantasia has been facing foreclosure. As far back as 2008, she reportedly defaulted on a $58,000 loan she had taken out in 2007 and was forced to put her $1.3 million North Carolina home on the market for $800,000. But she finally gave up the good fight this year when she agreed to essentially give her home back to the bank that gave her a mortgage in the first place.
