(javascript:void(0))MIAMI - After her parents sued her over what they say is their share of a $5 million waterfront home, Anna Kournikova has filed a countersuit in an effort to get her parents' names off the deed.

The tennis player filed a lawsuit in Miami-Dade Circuit Court on Wednesday, about a week after Sergei and Alla Kournikova sued their daughter in the same court. The parents want money for their share of the Miami Beach home, which they claim Anna Kournikova has taken over.

All three are listed as owners of the seven-bedroom, seven-bath home, according to property records. Anna Kournikova claims in the lawsuit that she paid the entire $5 million purchase price, plus an additional $1 million for improvements.

"Anna tried to resolve this dispute out of court and is disappointed that it has become a matter of public record," said her attorney, Michael B. Chesal. "She is terribly saddened by the situation."

Kournikova, 22, who has never won a tournament and is known mostly for her supermodel looks, has not played competitive tennis in more than a year because of injuries.

If she did indeed pay the whole thing.....I guess she is in the right, however they are her parents, the least she could do is buy them a house.......but I don't know the whole story!!

Well she did pay for it, so I guess it is her's.
Yes, Alla and Sergei did make her tennis career by moving to US and giving her birth, etc... but that is not how things work out in courts.
Unless Anna signed some where that this is there place too, I can't see how they can take this.
If it is true that Anna tried to resolve it out of court, then shame on Alla Kournikova and Sergei Kornikov!

This is truly quite sad. It always seemed to me that this family really loved one another and for an only child to be in a legal confrontation with her parents, and they with her, has got to be traumatic to all parties.

Possible reasons for this drama:

1. Parents want Anna to stop partying and to start training.
2. Parents are short of money and need funds from the sale of the house.
3. Anna is short of money and needs funds from the sale of the house.
4. Anna is reacting to her parents being concerned about her private life.
5. All of them have become Republicans and learned to be unethical and greedy. :eek: :lol:

What ever the reason, I hope it is quickly and quietly resolved and that Anna gets her tanned heinie back on the tennis tour.

If all three are listed as co-owners on the deed, it appears to me that they all own 1/3 of the property. I am not a lawyer but am I missing something?

Technically, it doesn't matter if Sergei and Alla didn't pay a dime for the home. If their name is on the title, they are partial owners. If some judge is willing to listen to testimony and receive evidence that Anna paid the full amount then I'd there's always a chance that Anna might win.

I'm not sure who is more shameful here Anna or her parents. But all three should go stick their heads in the Miami Beach sand.

All three are co-owners as they are all three on the deed. Who paid the cash means nothing. Anna could have GAVE them the house as a gift. Who knows??

Will ANNA K win the TITLE?......to her so called house that is?

I bet 2 bucks that she'll lose the TITLE to her parents. 1/6 2/4 retired (miss kournikova)

Her parents brought her into this world, she's rich enough that she should just give them the house and save the family.

Maybe she got tired of them sponging off her.

Volcana if she got tired of them sponging off of her that is her right to feel that way, but that has nothing to do with TAKING over a home that has two other people's names on the deed.

To BUY and Co-OWN a home with your parents (when u have alot of money to spare) and suddenly start TAKING OVER it like it is your own .. well is just plain rude and MEAN MEAN MEAN.

I didn't know you were just a Korni fan. If Vee and Rena did this.. I know all hell would break lose. It aint right.

just one diamond of anna can support her parents' living for whole life ;), may be her parents also have faults, but if not for them, she cannot learn tennis in usa and earn so many monies ;), at least give your parent a little house to live at Anna :mad:

I think her parents are moochers, she should disown them, I don't like them...does that mean I shouldn't like Anna? Or is Richard Williams the only parent that can make fans dislike a player?

There are a couple of ways to look at this situation. As I see it, Anna would not be who she is today or have what she has today without her parents, so if nothing else, she owes them that much respect.

She counter sued her parents.. what do you understand about her sadness there? The way I see it, there is a feud between one another. and they are trying to get back at each other by suing one another :confused:
