ATLANTA - Grammy-winning singer Whitney Houston's Atlanta-area home is still up for sale after being advertised for foreclosure.
Houston's five-bedroom Alpharetta home had been advertised for sale earlier this fall, but the foreclosure was not carried out, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported in a correction of a story published Friday. The earlier story said the house had been sold in a foreclosure sale.
Wachovia Mortgage Corp. officials and Houston's attorney confirmed Friday that the singer still owns the home she shared with husband Bobby Brown.
"There has not been a foreclosure sale, and the account is currently in good standing," said David Oliver, a Wachovia spokesman.
Houston attorney Mark Trigg told The Associated Press that the mortgage is current and the house remains in her name.
"It's now for sale by Ms. Houston at terms that are acceptable to her," Trigg said Friday.
Houston and Brown bought the home north of Atlanta in 2003 for $1.1 million.
In the meantime, Houston's New Jersey mansion is slated to be sold at a sheriff's sale because she is more than $1 million behind on the mortgage and taxes have not been paid this year.
In September, Houston filed for divorce from Brown after a 14-year marriage. She remains in Los Angeles, where she is working on a new album.
