Former actor and American football player OJ Simpson is losing his house, after late fees, penalties, and overdue principal built up.
Simpson, 64, has been imprisoned in a Nevada jail since 2008. The former football player purchased a one-storey house in Miami, Florida in 2000, taking out a $575,000 mortgage for the $522,000 home. The house has five bedrooms, four baths, a pool, and guest house set on a two acre plot. The home was sold to Simpson on September 2000. Miami-Dade Circuit Court records show that JPMorgan Chase filed for foreclosure in September on the house. Simpson's attorney has since filed a motion to dismiss the case, but there has been no further action since November. The 64-year-old former football star and actor is serving a nine-to-33-year prison sentence stemming from a 2007 armed confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room. Simpson was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges. He is appealing the conviction.
