AceShowbiz - Even when he's currently living behind the bars, Juelz Santana's troubles just keep coming. It's been reported that Wells Fargo is moving to foreclose the rapper's home in New Jersey in the near future after he failed to respond to a lawsuit. Bossip first broke the news.
According to the site, the bank first sued Juelz, whose real name is Laron James, back in February and alleged that the "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star had not paid the mortgage since July 2018 and wanted him to move out as soon as possibly. But Juelz did not respond to the lawsuit, possibly because of his jail time, prompting the company to file court papers on July 29.
In the court documents, Wells Fargo pointed out that Juelz had more than enough time to respond to the lawsuit, but he never did. Thus, they asked the judge to give them a default judgment. If the judge approves of the company's request, Juelz's condo would be put in foreclosure immediately and likely auctioned off at the Sherrifs Sale.
The bank wants Juelz to cough up the dough or have the home sold.
This apparently isn't the first time Juelz is at risk of losing his New Jersey home. He narrowly avoided having his home be foreclosed back in 2016, but later in 2018, he faced the same lawsuit because he was several months behind on the mortgage payments.
Juelz is currently serving jail time after he was found guilty to crimes related to his arrest at the Newark airport. At the time, the Dipset member was found with his guns in his luggage and when he realized he was about to get caught, he bolted out of the airport without his personal belongings. Juelz was caught afterward, before later being sentenced to 27 months in prison.
