Housing Fumble Ends Up in Court

New, 1 comment

San Francisco 49er legend Jerry Rice was "all set" to sell his 6-bed, 11-bath home in Atherton, when the buyers decided to back out of the deal at the last minute. Celebrity gossip outlet TMZ obtained court documents showing that the buyers plopped down a deposit of $330,000 and signed a contact in which they agreed to close by July 15 of this year, or else they'd have to forfeit the deposit. Shoot forward to present day and Rice is suing "so he can keep the money without having to sell them the house." [TMZ]
