â†µDykstra's woeful attempts at financial consultation that landed him in bankruptcy are well documented, but the extent to which his situation continues to worsen is worth noting. A month ago, CNBC toured his home and found it to be in sterling condition. Today, it's uninhabitable because of extensive water damage, as well as "torn up flooring," "holes in walls" and most curious of all, "missing toilets." â†µâ†µ
â†µSome are speculating that this damage was inflicted by Dykstra himself as an attempt to bilk insurers out of $10 million. In the meantime, those insurers have attempted to situate him elsewhere while repairs are being made, save one small problem: â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥Dykstra’s insurance policy is paying for a temporary residence but Lenny can’t stay there because that’s where his wife, who is divorcing him, lives. â†µâ†µ
â†µOf all the temporary housing in all the cities in all world, and you had to shack up in mine. â†µâ†µ
â†µSo for the time being it's in the car he will stay. Or the hotel lobby where he told CNBC's Jane Wells that he slept one night. All the while, the damage to his homes spells trouble for his impending hearing in front of a bankruptcy judge. And a sad tale, however tinged by hubris, grows a little sadder. â†µâ†µ
