La Shauna Burks — the mother of the young woman who organized the infamous McKinney pool party at Craig Ranch — is facing eviction from the neighborhood.


But Burks said that she hopes to pay her back rent and solve the issue by the end of the month.


Burks, her husband and children live in a $237,000 home in the Craig Ranch North subdivision. Her landlady, Mary Huang, said in court records that Burks is delinquent on her July rent of $1,620.


The eviction lawsuit was filed Monday. Huang asked Burks to vacate July 8, according to court records.


Burks, a hospital worker, said she fell behind on the rent because she missed some days of work after her children were threatened. People called the house and left messages online, she said.


"I couldn’t leave the kids by themselves," Burks said.


Rebecca Lin, Huang’s real estate agent, hasn’t returned calls.


Burks said she offered to pay in installments, but the agent declined. The McKinney mother said that if she pays in full before a court date in August, the case will be dismissed.


Burks said none of her five children has had problems with neighbors. She said the threats came from outside the neighborhood.


Burks’ daughter Tatyana Rhodes, 19, drew national attention after the pool party she organized at Craig Ranch in June went viral. Neighbors said police were called after the get-together at the private pool spun out of control. One video showed a white police officer pinning a black teenage girl to the ground and drawing his gun on two youths. The Texas Rangers are investigating.
