Because he allegedly failed to settle a $12,000 bill with building contractors, the star was named in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Embattled actor Mel Gibson is facing foreclosure on three of his properties in Malibu, California after he was accused of failing to settle a $12,000 bill with building contractors. The "Braveheart" star has been named alongside his estranged wife Robyn in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on September 17 by executives at Ramage Construction in.
The company bosses allege they were hired to build homes near the church on Gibson's Malibu estate but they never received the balance upon completion and they are now demanding the former couple pays up - or place the properties in foreclosure.
And Gibson's church is facing a similar fate - its owners at A.P. Reilly Foundation are also being sued by Ramage Construction over an outstanding $200,000 invoice stemming from the construction of the place of worship, reports TMZ.
