Tisha Campbell-Martin And Duane Martin Facing Possible Sanction Related To Bankruptcy Filing
Even though they are getting a divorce, Tisha Campbell-Martin and Duane Martin are continuing to fight their financial battles together. Due to having $15 million in debt, Campbell-Martin filed for Chapter seven bankruptcy last year. Now, Campbell-Martin along with her soon-to-be ex husband are accused of hiding $50,000 from their bankruptcy trustee and may be facing a sanction, The Blast reports.
Campbell-Martin was ordered to turn over her residual income from acting after a 2016 settlement. Though this was agreed upon, her husband has been accused of improperly diverting the residuals, adding up to $50,000, after the bankruptcy filing.
The trustee claims the Martins gave $125,000 to buy Campbell-Martin’s residual rights back; however after submitting the check, the couple wanted the monies to go towards remaining residual payments instead.
The trustee is now requesting that they are sanctioned and all residual income is paid to their estate.
The couple has not commented on these claims.
After their bankruptcy filing made the news last year, the My Wife & Kids star took to Twitter set the record straight in a tweet that was later deleted.
“Hey anybody got nickel? Yeah guys it’s not like what’s being reported at ALL but it’s funny tho. Quick statement, have y’all seen the movie ‘The Big Short?’… Yup we did file but its becuz my hubby n I invested n real estate, got involved w some loans b4 the BANKS caused the market to crash … Obviously couldn’t agree 2 a settlement with the banks, so we filed to reorganize, that’s all, but I so appreciate the genuine concern 4 my fam. I got the best supporters ever thanks TWITTER FAM,” she wrote.
