(Newser) – On the heels of yesterday's revelation that Ryan Lochte's parents are facing foreclosure comes this news: Months before Gabby Douglas' gold medal win at the Olympics, her mom filed for bankruptcy. Natalie Hawkins filed for Chapter 13, which TMZ calls "far less severe than Chapter 7." She's been making monthly payments to her creditors, although the gossip site notes that her money problems are probably over forever thanks to her daughter's win and the inevitable endorsement deals that will follow.
