“My Name is Earl” star Jaime Pressly’s former Sherman Oaks home will be auctioned by the bank after the actress defaulted on mortgage payments, The Real Deal has learned.
Pressly, who’s also starred in films such as the 2009 smash “I Love You, Man,” bought the five-bedroom, five-bathroom home for $2.25 million in 2008, records show. But she fell behind on her mortgage payments soon after. The outstanding balance of the loan is $2.07 million, according to PropertyShark.
The property, on Woodcliff Road, will hit the auction block February 19, records show.
News of the foreclosure comes just a year after Pressly filed a $900,000 suit against her accountant Daniel Rivero for allegedly messing up her finances. She claimed that she owed $850,000 in back taxes and lost $170,000 in bad investments at the hands of Rivero.
Rivero was even alleged to have forked over $220,000 to a landscaper who did only minor work on Pressly’s garden.
Calls to both Rivero and Pressly’s publicist were not immediately returned.
The Sherman Oaks pad has a custom iron railed grand staircase, Venetian plaster covered archways, vaulted ceilings, an open floor plan and a landscaped garden with a covered patio, a sun deck and a swimming pool, according to an old listing for the home.
