EXCLUSIVE: Ex Olympic Track Star Marion Jones Sued for Foreclosure of Texas Home
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, Marion Jones is being sued by her homeowners association who are demanding her Texas home be foreclosed on.
Marion is a former world champion track and field athlete and a former professional basketball player for Tulsa Shock in the WNBA. She won three gold medals and two bronze medals at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, but was later stripped of the titles after admitting to steroid use. Jones did retain her three gold medals as a world champion from 1997 and 1999.
Highland Park North Homeowners Association filed suit against Marion Jones and her husband Obadele Thompson seeking to foreclose on their Texas home.
The association is accusing the couple of refusing to pay fees relating to their Pflugerville, TX home. The suit explains the defendants were to pay certain assessments and have breached their deal. The association says Marion has caused them to suffer monetary damages, interest and attorney fees.
They explain due to the refusal to pay the fees they are filing suit to obtain a money judgement and/or to foreclosure on the property. The homeowners claim to have mailed Marion numerous notices requesting payment but they have failed.
The association is demanding the court allow them to foreclosure on a lien they placed against the property, an order of sale which will issue to any Sheriff or law enforcement directing them to seize the home from Marion and her family and sell off the property.
The total amount owed in unpaid assessments only totals $1,995.19 (for fees from 2016 – now), but the association points out that does not include attorney fees they incurred having to bring the case to court.
