This Patraeus scandel has it all. Sex, lies, theft, money, power and I would not be surprised at all if tomorrow breaking news with these people included murder. Jill Kelley, the woman who initially went to FBI and started a nationally known investigation is flat broke. Kelley is walking around with fancy clothes, nice cars, and a big house as if she doesn’t owe a red cent. Court records are showing that Kelley owes the banks and credit card companies. Bank of America is saying she owes $328,338 on her home valued at $1,837,571. The mortgage hasn’t been paid on since 2009. What in next with these people? Check down bottom for more.
A second property owned by the Kelleys in downtown Tampa was also in foreclosure proceedings beginning in 2010.
In that case, Central Bank claimed the couple owed $2.2 million, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The case was resolved, though details were not available.
And in 2010, Chase Bank sued the Kelleys over failure to pay a $25,088.56 debt on a revolving credit account. The case was voluntarily dismissed by the bank a year later.
Regions Bank sued the Kelleys for $253,437.31 in unpaid credit card bills, according to court documents.
In February the couple agreed to pay $850 a month, with $8,500 down, until the balance is paid, records show.
All told, Jill or Scott Kelley have been the subject of at least nine lawsuits since they moved to Florida, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
But their troubles weren’t just restricted to the Sunshine State.
The Kelleys were sued in 2004 in Montgomery County, Pa., by a couple who said they refused to return a $10,000 deposit on a condo rental that fell through. The court issued a default judgment against the Kelleys, and court records show it was paid the following year.
Despite their debt, the couple remained firmly established as the de facto welcoming committee to top military brass at U.S. Central Command.
Photos from bashes at Chez Kelley show a jolly Petraeus wearing beads around his neck alongside the woman who would ultimately lead to his undoing. Holly Petraeus — who is now reportedly fuming over her spy husband’s not-so-secret affair — also is all smiles.
