Jermaine Dupri

Barely Saves House

From Foreclosure ... Again

1/14/2013 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0111-jermaine-dupri-tmzJermaine Dupri's Atlanta mansion must have 9 lives -- because the music legend just saved the place from foreclosure ... for the SECOND TIME in 4 months.

TMZ broke the story ... Jermaine's house came within inches of the auction block back in September -- after he allegedly failed to make $193,404 in mortgage payments -- but the producer successfully staved off the foreclosure sale, claiming the bill was erroneous.

But after Jermaine again allegedly failed to cough up payments, a new auction date was set for January 2nd. 

And once again, Jermaine rescued his home -- filing an emergency motion just days after Christmas, insisting the foreclosure company has continually failed to prove that Jermaine actually owes the money it claims he does.

The company claims he owes roughly $410,000 on the home -- Jermaine insists he only owes $111,845.

The judge sided with Jermaine -- despite the producer admitting in the court docs that he hasn't made a mortgage payment since November 2011 -- and canceled the auction.

A hearing on the debt dispute has not been scheduled yet.

Regardless of the amount owed, if he admits he hasn't made a mortgage payment since November, 2011, he's behind on his payments. The deadbeat should be put out.

'' I see why Janet Jackson dumped your butt.'' ''You're a producer of pain.'' Pain for yourself and others. We have not forgotten that you're the main reason Janet's CD a while back flopped .

Jermaine Dupri has saved his house from foreclosure by ensuring that the company attempting the foreclosure has followed the proper procedures. Foreclosures have very strict procedures which must be followed precisely in order for a sale to go through. These procedural safeguards have been put into place in order to protect individuals from being taken advantage of by large banks and mortgage servicing firms. It appears that Mr. Dupri still owes a substantial sum for his Atlanta house, but for now he will be permitted to remain in the residence.

Well, rules are the same for everyone and it doesn’t matter if you’re celebrity or an ordinary person. In case you want to avoid foreclosure then it’s necessary to make payments in time and avoid late payments. I do not know what people who do not pay off their loans hope for… That there will come one sweet day and the debt will disappear? I can’t get how it’s possible to be so irresponsible about your house, because it’s a roof over head. But it’s good that Jermaine saved hois house from foreclosure. Maybe it will be a lesson for him that it’s necessary to be more responsible. Even if you’re short on cash it’s possible to apply for payday loans in 1 hour and save money on paying late fees and penalties.
