With her husband behind bars, Detroit’s former first lady, Carlita Kilpatrick, has fallen on hard times in Texas, losing her job and her lease on the family’s extravagant 5,000-square-foot home in suburban Dallas.

According to neighbors, some of the Kilpatricks’ furniture and numerous household belongings were out on the curb on trash pickup day last Monday, three days before the family officially moved out of the five-bedroom home they rented for $2,600 a month in Grand Prairie. According to Dallas real estate agent Will Butler, Carlita Kilpatrick was not evicted, but the owner of the house chose not to renew her lease. Butler did not elaborate, stating only that the house is now on the market to be leased again, this time for $2,799 a month.

It is not known where the Kilpatricks moved, but sources familiar with Carlita Kilpatrick’s plight said that the family’s church, the Potter’s House in Dallas, is helping them out. Officials with Potter’s House did not return calls or emails for comment.
