Bankruptcy and Divorce
Tisha Cambell and Duane Martin filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In the filing, they claimed the drowning of $15 million worth of debt. Their listed assets in real estate are $65,000 and $248,000 in personal property. The couple’s monthly income was $7,655 and they spent around $16,953 monthly.
Tisha filed for a divorce with her then-husband Duane after they had spent 22 years together. Tisha claimed that she owns $1.5 million but she doesn’t have any income source. Tisha has also charged Duane with hiding money during their marriage.
According to reports in 2009, Tisha and Duane sold their property in Lake Arrowhead, California, and sold it for $1.597 million. The property was owned by a couple for $880,000. The house has a massive living space and has grants of water access for people who have a boat. The couple also bought $900,000 and invested in another property in Chatsworth. This was their primary residence.
Duane sold off his property in Chatsworth to pay off his multitude of debts. He also took out a loan of $1.5 million loans that were provided to him by Will Smith. Tisha Campbell blocked Duane to receive the amount of the sale of the Chatsworth property. Duane was in heavy debt and this was the reason why the couple was forced to sell their family home. Tisha argued that Duane and his family must not be allowed to get any advantage from the real estate sale.
