MIAMI — JP Morgan Chase is foreclosing O.J. Simpson’s Kendall house.

According to CBS Miami, the four-bedroom, four bathroom house was purchased by Simpson in 2000 for $575,000. The current value of the house is $478,401.

JP Morgan filed for foreclosure in September, but Simpson’s attorneys have filed a motion to stop the foreclosure from happening, according to Local News 10.

Simpson is a retired NFL player, broadcaster, and actor who was –during the now infamous media frenzy and court case– acquitted of the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman but later was found responsible for the horrific crime in civil court. He is currently serving a nine-to-33 year prison sentence after being convicted of kidnapping and armed robbery in a Las Vegas Casino.

According to USA Today, Simpson has been struggling financially since the civil jury ordered him to pay $33.5 million for the death of Ronald Goldman.

“It was just a matter of time before he would lose the house,” David J. Cook told the AP. Cook is the lawyer for the Goldman family.
