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.
