Motown musician gets more time to raise money to keep home

Dozens of supporters showed up for Kenny Brinkley and his partner Sandi Combs.

The couple says their home on Taylor Street in Detroit was sold at auction without their knowledge.

They were told if they paid rent - they could eventually buy it back - but then got an eviction notice.

Today a judge ruled they could have more time to try to raise funds and negotiate a deal to purchase the home.

"I don't know what we're going to do financially," Brinkley said. "We just have to scuffle like we been doing. I appreciate that."

His attorney Joe McGuire said that sadly, Brinkley and Combs are just one example of a disturbing trend.

"What has happened the last few years with these scavenger companies coming into town, buying up properties at tax foreclosure auctions," McGuire said. "And using whatever they can - illegal evictions, tricks and just mass court filings to get people out of their homes. No one has really seen anything like it."

Brinkley was a member of the Motortown Revue Band and the Decoys.He is a musician who's played his saxophone all over the world.

A fund has been set up to help Brinkley save his Detroit home. If you would like to help, CLICK HERE.
