Franklin Facing Foreclosure Threat On Michigan Home

Legendary soul star ARETHA FRANKLIN is in danger of losing her Detroit, Michigan home to debt collectors after an attorney's error left her owing more than $19,000 (GBP9,500) in tax for the property. The R.E.S.P.E.C.T. diva is accused of falling behind on a $445 (GBP890) payment for taxes and late fees in 2005, with reports suggesting she owes a total of $19,192 (GBP9,596) in back taxes on the house up until 2007. But Aretha blames her lawyer for the mistake and claims she will pay up by the 31 March (08) deadline to prevent the house from slipping into foreclosure. According to FoxNews.com, a spokesman for the Wayne County treasurer's office has confirmed the foreclosure judgment for $445 was entered earlier this month (Mar08). However, any foreclosure proceedings will not begin until 2009.
