According to published reports, Isaiah Washington
is on the verge of being evicted from his Santa Monica, California home. USA Today says
"Isaiah Washington's landlord has started an eviction procedure against the former Grey's Anatomy
star, claiming he owes $100,000 in rent.
Documents filed in Santa Monica, Calif., on Tuesday claim that Washington and his wife have fallen behind on their $20,000 a month payments on a home in the Venice area of Los Angeles.
The complaint filed by Sandalwood Properties states the Washingtons have not paid rent since November.
A phone message left with Washington's agent was not immediately returned."
Poor Isaiah. He is in the upcoming film Hurricane Season
, which stars Forest Whitaker
and Taraji P. Henson
. Nonetheless, I can imagine the man who is known for using an anti-gay slur on the set of Grey's Anatomy
and at the 2007 Golden Globes, might still be experiencing some backlash. The gays don't play in Hollywood...
Still, wouldn't it have been good to downgrade from the $20,000 a month apartment? It's been nearly two years since his character ended on Grey's Anatomy
. Couldn't he have found a cute villa for a cool $5,000 a month?
