Terry Bollea, aka wrestler Hulk Hogan, has sold his Miami Beach mansion on the bay — to Michael Bay, Hollywood director and producer.
The Miami Herald writes that the deal was done for just under the sticker price of $18.9 million. Bollea, 54, bought the gated residence at 2900 N. Bay Rd. in April ’06 for $12 million.
Bay, 42, the director of many action films, including the recent “Transformers” will enjoy his modern six-bedroom main house with elliptical floating staircase, two guest apartments, pool, cabana and dock, plus a five-car garage.
Troubles have been plaguing the family Hogan, as Hulk, wife Linda, daughter Brooke and son Nicholas realized someone stole jewelry during their move Thursday — including a diamond watch and a couple of necklaces. The police report put the value of the missing items at $100,000.
Hulk has an estate in Belleair, near Clearwater, in the style of a French chateau.
Neal Litman, Bollea’s Miami real estate attorney, declined to comment on the sale to the Herald. “He’s exciting, he’s interesting, he’s humorous. The way he acts on TV, he really is that guy, but he’s got a warm side to him.”Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
