Fantasia Barrino

Taking $500,000 Hit

After Foreclosure Nightmare

EXCLUSIVE

Fantasia Barrino
Fantasia Barrino
's finally putting her financially turbulent past behind her -- dumping the giant house in North Carolina she nearly lost to foreclosure in 2009 ... but the therapeutic real estate move is costing her nearly $500K.

Fantasia has listed the 5-bedroom, 38,768 sq. ft. mansion in Charlotte for $800,000 -- nearly $500,000 less than what she paid for it in 2007 ... $1.3 million -- and you can bet she won't get her asking price.

As we previously reported, the home isn't without its bad memories -- Fantasia nearly lost the place at public auction after allegedly defaulting on a $58,000 loan. She managed to save it at the last minute.

So far, no word on whether the house has received any offers.

39,000 square feet and only 5 bedrooms?

No wonder it's so cheap.

If she is selling it for $800,000, I seriously doubt it is 38,000 sq ft. You might want to double check that.

"38,768 sq. ft. mansion in Charlotte for $800,000" - That figure has to be so wrong! That's what a 2 bedroom condo costs here in West Hollywood.

Money doesn't solve anything when you are so born ghetto,and your relatives are & those you keep company with...It's your very being.....And she continued to act skanky even after she got a break,from as people would like to call'em the "man". She can't handle the money just like that crazy woman in Maryland who "claims" to have a winning lotto ticket..

It is NOT 38,768 square feet. It is 6,232 square feet as many reports out there say. Like this one:

That is probably acreage, which is often also listed as square feet. That would mean it sits on .89 acre.

Nobody on earth even cares what Fantasia Barrino does, soon she will have to do a Whitney Huston to even get noticed in a small write up column on page 6 in a local media rag magazine.

These fakey-fake "stars" spending like REAL stars is insane. How the hell was she supposed to pay for that? With her American Idol money? Give me a break.
