The parents of U.S. Olympic gold-medal swimmer Ryan Lochte cheered their son on in London this week, but they were also embroiled in a foreclosure lawsuit back home in the states.

CitiMortgage filed a suit against Lochte's parents, Steven and Ileana, in May, seeking to foreclose on the couple's February 2007 mortgage on their property in Port Orange, Fla. The bank is seeking to recover $250,000, according to court documents.

Volusia County court records show that Ileana Lochte filed a motion to dismiss the suit in July.

Ileana Lochte told USA TODAY that none of her children knew about the foreclosure proceedings, the paper reported today.

Lochte's parents divorced in February 2011, after nearly 36 years of marriage.

Across the pond in London, Lochte tweeted that he was spending today with his family, but did not acknowledge his parents' foreclosure to his followers.

"Being with my family is the best part of my life," he said. "Today I got to kick back and have fun with the people I love most."
