Gary Dourdan

More Trouble for 'CSI' Star ...

This Time Facing Foreclosure

12/12/2011 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Dourdan
His 2011 has included arrests for domestic violence and drug possession (on a night that included a massive car wreck) so it's only fitting Gary Dourdan end the year with a foreclosure hanging over his head ... this according to documents obtained by TMZ.

According to docs filed back in September, Dourdan defaulted on his mortgage after he missed a payment due on July 1. The docs say Dourdan owes $61,558.90 as of September 28, 2011 .... on the Venice pad he bought back in 2004 for $922,000.

Calls to Dourdan's rep were not returned.

I don't understand these famous people with losing their houses, cars, bankruptcy, etc. If you have millions how the hell do you go broke? I just don't understand it.

SIMPLE MATH REALLY... WHEN MOST PEEPS (NORMAL EVERYDAY PEEPS) MAKE IT BIG IN THE CASH ARENA THEY TEND TO PAY FOR THINGS 100% UPFRONT AND IN THE GREEN. THUS, NO WORRIES ABOUT LOANS OR MORTGAGES AND OVER-EXTENDING THEMSELVES. THEY TEND TO BANK THE REST AND CONTROL THEIR SPENDING WHILST LETTING THE INTEREST THEY RECEIVE PER MONTH ON THEIR CASH PORTFOLIO TO PAY FOR THEIR DAILY LIVING COSTS. NOW CELEBS DONT THINK LIKE NORMAL PEEPS. THEY GET MILLIONS THEN THINKING THAT INCOME WILL CONTINUE TO THRIVE 4-EVER. THEY OVER EXTEND THEMSELVES, MAKE MASSIVE EXPENDITURES ON LOANS AND MORTGAGES, AND GET THEMSELVES INTO BANKRUPT SITUATIONS. NO DIFFERENT THAN EVERY DAY PEEPS THAT OVER EXTEND THEMSELVES ON CREDIT CARDS. BESIDES, THEY HAVE HANGERS-ON'S AND FAMILY MEMBERS THAT DRAG THEM IN THE HOLE EVEN MORE. PRETTY MUCH THE STORY... CELEBS SHOULD BE REALITY CASES STUDIED IN HARVARD BUSINESS SKOOL. "HOW TO BE FAMOUS, RICH, AND *NOT* A FINANCIAL DOUCHE BAG 101". TAKES 5 MINUTES OF READING AND 1 PRINCIPLE TO UNDERSTAND ---> "CASH IS KING!!" #TRUTH!!

This is just awful! I know the choices we make will either bring positive or negative results but when is Gary going to hit his 'bottom' so he can reach his way back to the top??
His family I pray are doing all they can to help him get back on his feet? Realizing for whatever reasons he has a problem. I wish black "celebrities" would manage their money better. I know this man has an addiction and I am sure that he has not made good choices with the way he spends his money due to this but this is so sad for Gary. His star was shining so brightly and now it's so dim. He came here to shine, to be a beacon of light unto himself and for other artists!
I find this to be so sad.
Gary you have to heal yourself man! Get up on your feet, love yourself, heal and move forward in the light.

Haven't you had enough?!

*not a fan but a fan of LIFE! Love, love, love people, we all gotta find and give so much more love!

Fantastic career move, leaving a hit show to start in blockbuster movies, one after another.

Who do these *******s think they are? They think they can buy fancy cars and houses and not pay for them? Oh and then not pay taxes like the hard working people in America. Give me a ******* break. They are all LOSERS. This should keep idiots from worshipping them like they do.

This guy's problem is simple: he thought he had more talent than he really does. He overestimated his own entertainment value.

He had it all I do not feel one bit of pity for him. He also thought very little of woman of color when his pockets were big. Had a second chance and still goffed it up. Maybe homless will wake him up
