Snoop should give the money to Nate's family so they didn't get stuck in this situation. Of course nobody probably told Snoop and didn't want to have to beg. Now where is Nate's family going to live? And this day and age, who's house isn't being foreclosed on?

Why is that a heartbreaking turn of events? If he was a deadbeat and didn't pay his bills, it was only heartbreaking for the bank that lent him the money for the house.

Of course! Because you know there were at least 30 relatives living off his money.

Last made a payment in December and they foreclosed in March??? Unless he was making partial payments, the system doesn't work that fast.

#2. above is EXACTLY right....I personally know first hand it does not work like that and myself fell behind with mortgage back in May 2007 and just last August 2010 the bank foreclosed on my home HOWEVER we did not have to MOVE from premises until this last FEBRUARY 2011! Let him rest in peace and for gods sakes there for sure is a lot more to the story!

Something's not adding up with this one. He didn't make payments for 3 1/2 months totaling less than $6K and the bank foreclosed while he was suffering from severe medical problems (that turned out to be terminal)? I sure wouldn't want his mortgage company. There has got to be more to this because it just doesn't make sense...

Either the amount is incorrect or that mortgage company is more ruthless than usual. $6,000 in three-four months isn't foreclosure material. If it is indeed $6k that means his mortgage was about $2k a month, which is low for the average celebrity. Maybe he was living the modest life in a normal-sized house, but something just doesn't seem right.

It's a damn shame that a person like Octomom, who became semi-famous for having a litter of kids and contributed absolutely nothing positive to society and hasn't worked in years, is able to stay in her house and have people bail her out of trouble, but a person like Nate Dogg, who from all accounts was a decent guy and started a gospel group after his singing career ended, got foreclosed on over $6,000 two days after his death? Wow.

I'm sure most TMZ posters probably assume since he's black and sung with rappers that he was a "thug" and a career criminal (that's the mentality on this site), but that wasn't the case.

I just hope his family is doing ok and that this foreclosure thing gets fixed. If it's only $6,000 the family surely can afford to pay that, even if it's with his life insurance payout; but I'm sure with his royalty checks alone he could've afforded it.

#1 & #10 your right. You have to be 3-4 months past due to even go into foreclosed status & still have to go to court before its deemed & still takes process to get yu out the house. They still have more than enough time to pay the pastdue to keep the house and probably with his insurance money should be able to pay in full.

Dec '10 was just this past December. I agree - typically, foreclosures take a lot longer than this.
