Isaiah Washington may be getting kicked to the curb. The actor and his wife, Jenisa, are allegedly $100,000 behind on rent for their Los Angeles home and may be facing eviction, according to court documents filed Tuesday in Santa Monica, Calif.
The posh home sits amid the picturesque canals near Venice Beach. Around April 2008, the former Grey's Anatomy star, 45, allegedly agreed in writing to pay $20,000 monthly in rent, with an option to buy the home, but then neglected to pay for the past five months, the documents say.
On March 19, a notice was posted on the property informing the Washingtons they had three days to pay up or move out. It's unclear whether or not they vacated the premises.
The owner of the home, Sandalwood Properties Inc., is seeking $100,000 back rent, plus attorneys fees and a cancellation of the rental agreement.
Calls to the actor's rep and a lawyer for the property weren't immediately returned.
