Isaiah Washington -- Anatomy of a Deadbeat

3/24/2009 8:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Isaiah Washington owes his landlord $100,000 and if he doesn't pay up, he could be out on his ass.

Isaiah Washington

Washington's landlord claims the ex-"Grey's Anatomy" star/homophobe is five months behind on the rent for his home in Venice, California. Washington had signed a lease/option agreement to purchase the property for $3,650,000.

We're told Washington was having a dispute with his financial guy and Washington told his landlord he was in the process of getting his money back so he could pay his rent.

Washington, his wife and kids are still in the house. But the eviction process has begun. Legal papers were filed today. We're told Washington is probably going to move out shortly anyway ... but there's this thing about the $100,000 ...

Did he and TR ever claim to be friends? Strange poll question. I wouldn't let any co-worker/ex-co-worker stay with me and my family.

Wow    

Washington's remarks several years ago were unfortunate, but I don't think he ahould have to pay for them for the rest of his life.

This is sad. Washington is a very talented actor and at his age, he should be purchasing a home outright. In addition, I think his frustration as more with Patrick Dempsey than T.R. Knight. He seemed to resent the fact that Dempsey is considered more attractive and got more attention for his appearance/acting skills than Washington felt he deserved.

Looks like he may have ruined his career with those outbursts. I guess there are plenty of people who can act but are decent humans beings and are more pleasant to work with.

Maybe he is living a lifestyle beyond his pocketbook. He hasn't done much since he left GA. Try getting a smaller house to support your income Isaiah. Get your agent to get you more leading roles that pay more or fire his ass. Your acting talents are what earn you a living, I just hope your past comments don't come back to bite you in the ass. For what you owe, $100,000, you can put a down payment on something no so big, yet be comfortable. Shoot, I wish I had a hundred grand.

It's a shame that he'll be blackballed from Hollywood for calling someone the F word.

maybe his landlord is gay and the big black mouth with the wife (?) who really looks like a man can wiggle out of this like he does everything else. Nothing is worse than a fool with money (yesterday) and has a big mouth.

He will be just fine! There are tons of ppl having a hard time in this economy! But by NO MEANS should he sleep at TR's house. He should keep his rectum tight and avoid TR's nasty trap!!

To #13 Joanne- That's what they do best. Have you ever seen their show? These geeks and dorks all make fun of every star they take pictures of. They should take a look in the mirror at themselves. Bunch of talentless nobodies.
