Michael Jackson: Personal physician may lose his house
Drowning in debt, Michael Jackson's personal physician could soon lose his Las Vegas home.
Jackson's personal physician, 51 year old Dr. Conrad Murray, has fallen behind more than $100,000 on his mortgage payments and could face foreclosure on his home.
Dr. Murray, who has been dogged by money trouble, was racking up the debt when he went to work for Jackson in May. The King of pop was paying Murray $150,000 per month before he died.
Dr. Murray is also the target of a manslaughter probe.
According to the documents filed on July 23 with the Clark County Recorder, Dr. Murray accumulated a debt of more than $100,000 plus penalties since January on a nearly $1.7 million loan on the mansion at the exclusive Red Rock Country Club.
As per assessment records, his 5,268-square-foot home has four bedrooms, three fireplaces, a pool and spa. It's original sale price in 2004 was $1.1 million.
Mary Hunt, a foreclosure officer handling Murray's case, said that Murray has stopped paying his $15,000 per month mortgage in January and could face foreclosure by November.
