Gold Medalist Lochte’s Parents Facing Foreclosure In Florida
DELAND, Fla. (CBS SPORTS) – The parents of U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte are facing foreclosure in Florida.
According to a lawsuit filed in May in Volusia County, CitiMortgage is suing to foreclose on Steven and Ileana Lochte. The bank is seeking to recoup $250,000. The news was first reported by TMZ.
Court records show Ileana Lochte asked the court to dismiss the case last month. Messages left Saturday for her attorney were not immediately returned.
The Lochtes divorced last year. Court records did not show whether Steven Lochte had an attorney. Both parents have been in London recently to watch their son compete.
Ryan Lochte has won five medals, including two gold medals, in swimming events at the London Olympics.
