One of Fantasia’s two homes in foreclosure

One of American Idol 3 winner Fantasia Barrino’s two houses is in foreclosure, and may be auctioned off early next year.

The $1.3 million, 6,232 square-foot house has six bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, and is located on Bevington Place in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Real Estalker reports. BestDamnAfternoonShow.com has a copy of the court document, filed Dec. 2, that shows that it will be auctioned Jan. 12.

However, Real Estalker reports that Fantasia also “owns a second house on nearby Seton House Lane that she purchased in July of 2004 for $740,000.”

Fantasia is reportedly working on her third album, but otherwise hasn’t done much publicly since appearing in The Color Purple–and then missing 50+ performances of the show before she ended her run this past March.
