Johnson is back in the news. According to TSN.ca Johnson is in a fight with his parents over a home he owns in Michigan in which his parents currently live. Johnson wants to sell it to help pay off debts.
In a letter to a bankruptcy court judge in Ohio – marking one of the few instances where their position on their son’s bankruptcy has been made public – Kristina and John J.L. Johnson II say they signed a 50-year, rent-free lease for the property with their son. They have asked a bankruptcy court judge to prevent Johnson from selling the property.
Johnson signed a seven-year, $30.5 million contract with the L.A. Kings and gave his mother full control of his finances. That’s the move I would make.

In January, Johnson asked the court’s permission to sell the Ann Arbor home for $575,000.
They said they sold the property to their son in September 2007 and “continued our life as it had always been as a family of four in the home following the sale of the house to Jack.”
“To state that Jack has permitted us to occupy the premises from time to time is outright false, outrageous and laughable.”
TSN continued to talk about Johnson’s assets, including three BMWs and a 2011 Ferrari.
Johnson, 29, has appeared in 59 games this season, scoring six goals and adding eight assists.MORE NEWS: Michigan Prisons Follows CDC, Allows COVID-Positive Staff To Work After 5 Days With Mild Symptoms
