Tennis star Maria Sharapova is under investigation in India after being named as part of the collapse of a luxury housing project that Sharapova endorsed. The project allegedly took millions of dollars from homebuyers before it folded. Sharapova was named alongside the firm responsible for the development.
Sharapova reportedly travelled to India in 2012 to launch the development, which was named Ballet by Sharapova. Prospective buyers were told that the housing would include a tennis academy, a clubhouse, and helipad. It was supposed to be completed in 2016, but work was abandoned.
