Dykstra ripped up mansion, ripped off lender: complaint

0 comments

Ex-Phillie Lenny Dykstra “removed and presumably sold” furniture and fixtures at one of his California mansions so they wouldn't fall into the hands of creditors, according to court papers filed by a lender that helped finance Dykstra's $17 million purchase of NHL great Wayne Gretzky's Thousand Oaks mansion, Bloomberg News reports here. Dykstra's lawyer didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

Dykstra enjoyed a flamboyant post-baseball career in stock-index investments and sports publishing before filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July. As the story notes: "A person in bankruptcy isn’t allowed to dispose of assets. Some do it anyway."
