According to documents obtained by the National Enquirer, the stars' dad and his second wife McKenzie will be forced out of the house on July 9 if they fail to settle their debt and the property will be sold off at a public auction.


More celebrity parents...Twilight star Dakota Fanning (pictured) has revealed that before she became an actress, her parents had hoped she would excel on the sporting field.

“My mom went to college on a full scholarship for tennis, my dad played minor-league baseball and my grandfather was a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles,” The Secret Life Of Bees star told Jay Leno in an earlier interview.


She added: “So before I started acting, the plan for me was to be a tennis player – that was the plan for me and my mom had me in tennis classes.

“One day, I went to her and told her I really love the outfits, but it’s just too hot – it’s just too hot for me to play tennis and I didn't want to play anymore.”

Fanning, 16, has also previously confessed to the Daily Mail that she was “traumatized” by her experience on the football pitch. She told the UK newspaper: “I was playing in a game one day and I got the ball for the first time and I was so excited and I was running and running… I turned around and nobody was cheering for me and nobody was proud of me – and I then realized I'd kicked it in the wrong goal – so I quit soccer too.”
