Though he defeated TikTok superstar Bryce Hall in a highly-publicized boxing match last month, the hits just keep coming for Austin McBroom. Outside the ring, the controversial YouTuber and his wife Catherine Paiz — together with their three young children, collectively known as the Ace Family — have already been facing mounting legal and financial woes from business ventures gone awry. But more pressingly, they now also face foreclosure on their Los Angeles home.
According to multiple reports and confirmed by property records, the Ace Family’s extravagant Woodland Hills mansion has entered pre-foreclosure, after the couple stopped making mortgage payments in early 2021. In late May, the couple’s lender filed a Notice of Default on the property, which is technically owned by a company called Ace Hat Collection. Per the California Secretary of State, Catherine — whose legal name is Dolores McBroom — is Ace Hat Collection’s president, while Austin is the company’s vice president.
Spanning three contiguous parcels that total nearly two acres of land, the Ace Family estate is arguably the most lavish residence in all of Woodland Hills, a working-class community in the San Fernando Valley. In May 2019, the couple paid $10.1 million for the property, which at that time included two half-finished mansions, each with about 6,000 square feet of living space. The pair financed their purchase with an $8.85 million mortgage, records show.
Paiz and McBroom subsequently spent another small fortune to complete construction on both structures and combine the two separate mansions into one supersized mega-mansion. Tax records aren’t clear about the home’s exact size, but it weighs in at north of 15,000 square feet of living space, with a reported 10 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms.
