Emmanuel Lewis

Then Came Foreclosure

1/8/2012 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Someone get George Papadapolis on the phone, because Emmanuel Lewis is going to need some help again ... Webster's home in Georgia was recently foreclosed on!

According to docs filed in Fayette County, GA, Lewis's home was sold at auction for just $56,000 back in September. The home went into foreclosure after Lewis failed to pay State, County and School taxes from 2007-2010 totaling $44,081.41.

Lewis' mother Margaret is also listed on the foreclosure docs, though it's unclear if she lives in the home or not. 

Attempts to reach Lewis were unsuccessful.

Was this a mansion or a little shack? It seems hard to believe a nice house would be let go for so little. He couldn't even borrow the money from anywhere or take out a reverse mortgage? It seems like he could get money doing appearances, writing a book or even some more acting. I think he could have gotten a personal loan from a bank based on his celebrity status.

It is sad how people lose their homes due to taxes. There should be an alternative, such as doing community service to pay it off. Taxes are so high in some places that people on social security can't afford to keep them. That is not really fair. Most of the money goes to the schools which goes to construction, which doesn't affect retirees either way.

Ok it's too bad, but a lot of people are struggling who didn't have the earning to begin with that E. Lewis blew. He didn't manage his money properly or he wouldn't be in the situation he's in. That's it.
