Lenny Dykstra Facing Foreclosure
Dykstra bought the home from hockey Wayne Gretsky for $18.5 million in 2007 and put it on the market last year for $24.95 million. The six-bedroom home didn't sell and in February it showed a price reduction down to $16.5 million. All of a sudden, the list price has been pushed back up to $25 million. It is still however listed at the same rental price it was in February, $55,000 a month.
Dealbreaker also says that Dykstra's Gulfstream II was impounded on February 12. It's a dramatic turn from a year ago when the New Yorker did a profile of Dykstra and his magazine, The Players Club which was going to show professional athletes how to keep their wealth and not join the ranks of players who earn millions and wind up in financial trouble just a few years later. Since then, Dykstra has been the subject of multiple lawsuits and creditors in relation to the magazine. As investments, magazines are like restaurants, glamorous, but highly profitable only for the lucky few.
