A woman who rents a home owned by Whoopi Goldberg is accusing her of being a “merciless, cruel woman” after she was evicted from the home when she fell behind her property taxes.
Single mother of three, Suzanne Lindsay, couldn’t keep up with the payments and was forced to declare bankruptcy last year, owning the bank in back taxes to the tune of $13,455, and forcing her to move out of the home.
Lindsay had a 99-year lease on the property and pleaded with Whoopi for mercy, who apparently did meet with the woman and told her all would be okay. Then she gets a letter from Whoopie’s attorney offering her $10,000 toward moving costs if she forfieted the 33 years she had left on her lease.
She had no choice but to take the offer and Whoopi maintains she had no choice but evict Lindsay after she refused her previous offer to buy her house.
