According to TMZ, NY Jets superstar Antonio Cromartie — the dude with 10 kids (and 2 on the way) — is in danger of losing the house he bought with his mom back in 2006 … right AFTER he became a multi-millionaire … TMZ has learned.
Cromartie is being sued by the Bank of NY … for allegedly blowing off $105,381 in missed mortgage payments on an 864 sq. foot home he bought in his hometown of Tallahassee, Florida in November ’06.
According to Zillow.com, Cromartie bought the house for $135k. Docs show he co-signed on the loan with his mom right after he was selected in the 1st round of the 2006 NFL Draft … and they locked in on a ridiculously high 9.7% interest rate.
Bank of NY claims Antonio stopped making payments in 2010 … and now it wants a judge to force the Pro Bowler to hand over the keys to the property AND make good on his mortgage payments … plus interest.
We’re guessing the bank is aware of the MASSIVE contract he signed with the Jets last year … 4-years, $32 million … which probably isn’t that much considering he’s got 12 mouths to feed … plus baby mamas.
