Kwame Kilpatrick’s Wife Loses Her Home After Husband Goes to Prison

What's Going On

GM styleWhen it rains, it pours.  Years ago, no one would have ever predicted that Kwame Kilpatrick and his family would be nearly destitute.  But things can change in a second, especially if you’re not careful.  Kwame is now in prison and his wife Carlita, has hit some tough financial times in Texas.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Carlita has lost her home to foreclosure and her household items were out on the curb.  The family was renting the 5,000 square foot home for $2,600 per month and now they can’t afford the rent.    According to Dallas real estate agent Will Butler, Carlita Kilpatrick was not evicted.  However, the owner of the home has decided not to renew her lease.

The house is on the market again for a slightly higher price of $2,799 per month.

The family is getting some help from their church, “Potter’s House.” Her neighbors say that there was a great deal of furniture out on the curb.

“There was a lot of furniture. It was a lot of stuff there … the kind of stuff that you keep,” said a neighbor.

Right after her husband was sent to prison, Carlita lost her job working for the city of Duncanville, Texas.   Officials say that she didn’t meet the requirements for the job.  Her husband, former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, was sent to prison along with his long-time friend Bobby Ferguson, on a total of 34 counts.  They both face up to 20 years.

Carlita has not been charged with a crime.  The family also owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution to the city of Detroit for lawsuits that were caused during Kilpatrick’s administration.  Recently, Detroit became the biggest city in American history to declare bankruptcy.  Many attribute Detroit’s financial woes to the corruption that occurred during the Kilpatrick Administration.  Nearly a decade ago, Kilpatrick was hailed as a “Hip-Hop Mayor,” being the youngest to ever run the city of Detroit.  But it now appears that his immaturity and lack of experience may have led to his demise.
