Fantasia Barrino $1.3million house up for auction


fantasia-color-purple-edit.jpgIt is reported that Fantasia Barrino, an "American Idol" winner owes a Florida credit company $65,000 which she borrowed to pay owed back taxes to the IRS in 2006. She made a payment of $10,000 and has not paid the rest.

Larry Goldman, an attorney representing the credit company, Broward Energy Management, said that they have been trying for an entire year to get in touch with Miss Barrino but she has not responded to court documents and no lawyer has been to court to represent her. Due to this the financial company won the rights in court last month to auction off her house for the balance.

Since then Barrino has made no payments and filed no documents, but Goldman said he has since spoken twice with Barrino reps who said that they would be in touch. His clients are wondering why they just won't pay.

Barrino's attorney, Gary Greenberg declined to comment.
