OJ Simpson's Kendall Home is Facing Foreclosure
Sure, it's hard to muster much sympathy for O.J. Simpson, but remember, he hasn't been making much use of his house in Kendall lately. He's got a steady residence for the next six to 27 years: a jail cell in Nevada. So don't feel too bad that his Miami home has met a familiar fate -- it's being foreclosed on.
JPMorgan Chase filed a foreclosure on Simpson's 4,233-square-foot pad back in September. According to the Associated Press, his attorney tried to get the foreclosure suit dismissed in November, but no action has been taking since then.
He bought the home for $575,000 back in 2000, but its value has no plummeted. It's worth $478,401 now.
Simpson is currently serving a nine-to-33 year sentence for his role in an armed confrontation with a sports dealer in Las Vegas. He was convicted in 2008 of kidnapping and armed robbery.
Simpson's personal finances have been stymied since a civil court handed down a $33.5 million judgement holding him responsible for the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.
Anyway, Casey Anthony, if you're looking for a good deal on a new place, well, boy, could we have just the home for you.
