Last year It was reported Joe & Melissa Gorga sold their New Jersey mansion for full ask price of $3.8 million.

Well, not so fast.  The deal was apparently a little more complicated than that and now the buyer has defaulted on the agreement leaving Joe & Melissa on the hook for property taxes, insurance and I’m sure a hefty mortgage payment.

The Gorga’s filed eviction paperwork seeking to remove the anonymous buyer from the six-bedroom, seven bathroom mansion.

According to Daily Mail,

‘To date, the purchaser has failed to uphold his financial obligations under the agreement and provided bounced checks totaling $20,000 as well as failed to pay rent for the months of April, May, and June 2014,’ the rep said.

Melissa told US Weekly,

Monthly payments have been a struggle for the anonymous buyer since the purchase.

‘I believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt, but I am not going to continue to pay for a complete stranger to live in a multimillion dollar home.’

Joe and Melissa have already started building their dream home in nearby Franklin Lakes.  This is going to get awfully messy.  Good luck with that!
