The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon's new husband Israel Houghton was very close to losing his former family home to foreclosure. According to court records, the gospel singer missed 11 payments and owed a whopping $90,000 on the Texas mansion — but he may have caught a huge break in the matter.
According to Bossip, the gospel singer will no longer have to worry about the dreaded "F" word as he has found a buyer for the pricey home. In fact, the site reports that, based on public records, the home's proposed sale price will relieve Houghton's nearly $90,000 debt on the expensive property.
This all dates back to early 2017 when Deutsche Bank sued both Houghton and his ex Meleasa to foreclose the home, which once stood as their family residence, in Harris County, Texas. Their grounds to sue was simply that the musician had not paid the mortgage in months.
They added that, despite the bank notifying him on several occasions regarding the missed payments, he still managed to miss the deadline, resulting in the bank asking for the family to clear the premises immediately.
Based on the bank's records, he owed a whopping $89,111.54 from the 11 times he was scheduled to pay but never did. Court documents also state that he would have to pay the total amount he owes on the entire mortgage — $608,654.17 — in order to fix the foreclosure.
Things seemed to take a turn in Houghton's favor last month, however, when the bank filed paperwork to "nonsuit" him and his ex, making them no longer responsible in the suit or for the mortgage debt altogether. Due to the pending sale of the home, the bank is likely to get its money back.
