It’s been a tough year for former NFL player Eddie George.

After George was pulled over by police in a car with professional golfer Rachel Conner at 2 a.m. and the woman was arrested for a DUI. It’s been a downward spiral for the former Tennessee Titan running back.

Many speculated George and Conner were having an affair. But he denied those rumors and claimed the woman was simply dropping him off after a charity event. A few weeks after the incident, Eddie and his wife Taj’s house went up for sale. Many believed the couple was on a verge of a divorce.

Taj, who is a member of the group SWV, tried to downplay the situation. She said their marriage was fine and they decided to keep their Brentwood, Tennessee home.

But as it turns out, the George’s should have left it on the market. According to the Tennessean, the couple defaulted on their mortgage and now the house is up for auction on June 7.

Eddie’s accountant claims his client is financial stable. But that the couple deliberately missed “four or five payments” to try an open the door with the bank to discuss loan modifications. The George’s are upside down and owe more than the home is worth.

From The Tennessean:

The home of former Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George and his wife, Tamara, will be auctioned June 7 on the steps of the Williamson County Courthouse following a default on the mortgage.

The property is an 8,550-square-foot home in the gated Brentwood community of Hampton Reserve, just off Concord Road near Edmondson Pike.

Just a few months ago, the home was listed for sale by the couple for $1.1 million.

The house features an open floor plan with cathedral ceilings, four bathrooms, three half-baths and five bedrooms. There is also an elevator that runs from the basement to the attic, a workout room, a swimming pool and a hot tub.
