Speedy Claxton – I Had No Idea My Home Was Being Foreclosed On
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports that Speedy Claxton says he was unaware that his home was in foreclosure. The former NBA star, who was married to ex Basketball Wives star Meeka Claxton, filed docs in the case explaining he was never served with the court docs. The 39-year-old retired baller is a basketball coach and says he wasn’t at the home on the night they claim he was served because he was coaching.
Here’s the backstory: Speedy was hit with a 2nd lawsuit demanding foreclosure of a New York home, with the bank demanding he pay the $630k he owes them. The Bank of New York sued Claxton explaining he took out a $540k mortgage back in 2007. The note was used to purchase a home in far Rockaway, NY. However, they accused him of defaulting on the loan by failing to make any payment since March 2015.
Back in February, Claxton owed $537,687.59 on the unpaid principal, $82k+ for interest, $14k for an escrow advance and other fees for a grand total of $634,924.21.
The bank is demanding the court allow them to foreclosure on Claxton’s property, force him out of the property and sell off the home at public auction.
Aside from this suit, Claxton recently lost a separate foreclosure suit with a bank over a home on the same street as the home currently at risk of being taken from him.
In 2017, after battling in court for nearly three years, the former professional athlete and ex Basketball Wives: Miami star officially divorced after 16 years of marriage. They share two children.
