Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson is reportedly taking his mother to court to have her evicted from his house.

 

The dancer – who rose to fame on the popular talent show in 2008 when he was only 14 years old – used some of his £100,000 prize money to buy his first home. 

 

He then purchased a second property four years later, which his mother Lesley moved into.

 


 

According to The Sun, sources close to the performer – who is now 23 – have claimed that George asked his mother to vacate the house earlier this year, but because she still hasn’t done so he is now involved in a High Court legal battle to have her evicted.

 

They said: “The first house George bought is in Lesley’s name – as he was underage when he bought it – and she collects the rent from that.”

 

“She has also been living in the second property.  But George has now decided he wants it back, and he asked her politely to leave this year.”

“Unfortunately, she doesn’t want to and they are now due in court to fight it out.”

 

The source told The Sun that the actor “never wanted to involve lawyers or make this business any messier than it needs to be” but claimed he has been forced to do so as “he wants...the house that is rightfully his”.

 

“He has a life in London now, and he also needs to support himself,” they said.

 

 

Back in May, George told the Loose Women panel that money issues had caused tension between he and his mother, but that he hoped their relationship would improve again with time.
