Stephon Marbury Sued Over $1 Corporate Sale

7/18/2010 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stephon Marbury -- who once made tens of millions to ride the NY Knicks' bench -- is now in a legal battle over the sale of his company ... for the grand total of $1, according to court documents.

In the lawsuit, filed Friday in L.A. County Superior Court, a woman named Thuymai K. Ung claims Marbury agreed to sell her 100% of his company -- which includes a piece of property in L.A. -- back in December ... for the sum of one American dollar.

In the documents, Ung alleges that Marbury is now claiming that he still owns part of the company and/or the property.

According to the suit, the property is currently in foreclosure, which might explain why Marbury -- who now dishes the rock in the Chinese Basketball Association -- would dump his company for ten dimes.  Then again, it's hard to explain most of what Marbury does.

Ung is asking the court to declare her the rightful owner of the company and the property. A rep for Marbury could not be reached.

That woman is probably a real estate investor, who may have helped him set up the 'company' to be able to transfer ownership of the property that way (possibly a trust?) to avoid the 'due on sale' clause. The property was assumably already in foreclosure in Dec. That would have helped his credit rating, by only having lates, instead of a foreclosure on record.

But this is July. If the property is still in foreclosure, then that would mean the payments haven't been made. Soooo.., the question is: What happened?

1. The woman took the property 'subject to' and thought she could sell it quickly to someone else and didn't have the funds to pay the arrears. She couldn't find a buyer and reneged. Not good! That's the kind of behavior that gives all of us honest real estate investors a bad name.

2. Maybe he suddenly started putting up roadblocks, after he signed on the dotted line, made it impossible for her to sell the property. Maybe she had a buyer lined up and he suddenly decided he was still owner? That made her stop making the payments and the property went back into foreclosure.

Wow! I can't believe that his life came to this. I remember back when he was in Lincoln High School and he was all over the local newspapers for his athletic ability. He was huge back then. The higher they rise the harder they fall.
