Screen icon Burt Reynolds risks losing his home to foreclosure after a suit was filed against the actor that demands mortgage payments amounting to about $1.2 million, the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel reports.
Merrill Lynch Credit Corp. filed the suit against Reynolds, which demands: "Plaintiff must be paid $1,193,808 in principal on the mortgage note and mortgage, together with interest from August 1, 2010, and all costs."
Merrill Lynch wants to foreclose on the 4-acre Indian Hills property and sell it to recoup the debt. The Mediterranean-style home is reportedly valued at $2.4 million.
Reynolds, who recently appeared as a guest on USA Network’s "Burn Notice," could not be reached for comment. A message sent to Reynolds’ publicist, Erik Kritzer, was not returned, according to the newspaper.
