Bank makes deal with Scott and Jill Kelley to stop mansion's foreclosure

Times staff (2012)

TAMPA -- Thanks to a deal with the lender, Jill and Dr. Scott Kelley are not going to lose their Bayshore Boulevard mansion to foreclosure.

The couple, who were thrust into the limelight in the 2012 scandal that ended the career of CIA director and former U.S. Central Command leader David Petraeus, entered into a mortgage modification with Regions Bank. Court papers said the couple lived at the home more than three years without making payments to the bank.

Under the deal, the Kelleys agree to pay the bank the $1.7 million they owe, at $9,747 a month. "It's the right result and we are very pleased that Regions did the right thing," Jill Kelley said in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times.
