Israel Houghton Faces Foreclosure Of Family Home Over Thousands In Debt

Israel Houghton & ex-wife Meleasa

The home where Israel Houghton lived with his ex-wife and raised three kids is now in default after the former mega-church worship leader stopped paying the mortgage for almost a year, according to Bossip. The site reports,

Last week, Deutsche Bank sued Houghton and ex Meleasa to foreclose their one-time family home in Harris County, TX. Court, contending that the father of five hadn’t paid the mortgage in several months. The bank said that it notified Houghton about the missed payments and gave him time to fix the arrears. However, Houghton missed the deadline and the bank wants the whole mortgage amount paid or his family tossed out, according to court papers. Houghton, who married “The Real” host Adrienne Houghton in November in Paris, may be stretched for cash as of late. He was put on “indefinite leave” from his job with Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church after announcing the split with Meleasa on social media in 2015. And last year, it was revealed Houghton was also supporting two young sons born out of wedlock.
