Aww, we feel absolutely terrible for Mr. Jay Manuel!

A source close to the former America's Next Top Model star EXCLUSIVELY revealed that he is going through a TERRIBLE ordeal with his 3-year-old home in Connecticut.

According to the insider, Jay's dream house, which was once featured on an episode of Designer Living, is now in SHAMBLES.

Unfortunately for the 42-year-old, he was forced to evacuate his casa last February after an appalling framing/insulation defect caused a massive water condensing flaw in the home's exterior walls.

Ugh, how AWFUL!

The source added:

"The rot uncovered was consistent with a poorly build home over 75 years old."

How unacceptable for brand new digs!!

Due to the "latent building defects" of the house, insurance companies backed away from the whole nightmare, forcing Manuel to rebuild the ENTIRE home out of pocket.

Understandably, Jay has filed a suit against the husband and wife building team responsible — Eric and Magdalena Kotonski of EK Construction LLC – and they've allegedly dragged the case on, which has made matters a lot worse for the makeup maven.

The silver lining in this terrible situation is that Jay was able to rent a modest apartment during the rebuild and he'll stay with family during the holidays.

Stay strong, friend!

    PEREZ: Big difference between "HOMELESS" and renting an apartment. Don't be so damn offensive. Have a little respect to those that are truly HOMELESS. What a concept. God, you are pathetic with your lying headlines to get people to hit so you make money. You actually could go the other way. I'm sure you could find someone to write HONEST headlines and still make your hit quota for the day.

    We're about to be homeless for the Holidays. Legitimately. This story is NOT homelessness.

    I can't believe you're more outraged about this million's house falling apart than people being murdered in the streets. Get your fucking priorities straight.

    The term "homeless" does not apply here. Homelessness is a serious issue for many disadvantaged people. You should not be using it so lightly and in reference to someone who has more than enough resources to secure a place to live. Really in poor taste!

    Re: Grace Wagner – Agree Grace and sending a check tomorrow to the nearby homeless shelter.
