The surprise listing notes that the property features a “stocked lake, two ponds, outbuildings, a self-contained apartment and swimming pool.” Additionally, the listing notes that buyers could explore a “hybrid development option.” This option would see the buyer use the property to build a gated community or a vacation resort.
Lee Was Schoked By The Eviction Notice
Fox News reports that Lee believed the family ranch would be protected legally and that the ranch would remain the Lewis family home after the singer’s death. However, he was shocked to learn his cousins had different plans for the Mississippi property.
“My dad told me a lot of things about what would happen when he passed away,” Lee tells Fox News Digital.
“I feel like he told me that for dang near my entire life, and I still don’t feel like he prepared me for what I’m going through right now,” he adds. Lee notes that the people his father warned him about aren’t the ones causing the current legal issues
“The people that are coming at me vs. the people he told me would come at me – it’s not the same at all,” he explains. “That actually surprises me a lot.”
Lee says he found out about the home’s website while he was at work. He claims his cousin was pulling a “fast one” with his eviction attempts.
“ From my understanding, the website went up Nov. 25,” Lee recalls. “That’s not even a full month after he passed away.”
