Talk-meister and former NFL player Michael Strahan has quietly sold his Brentwood mansion in Los Angeles for $21.5 million, according to our friends at the L.A. Times.
Strahan, the gap-toothed co-host of “Live! With Kelly and Michael” reportedly bought the house in 2013 for $16 million when he was engaged to Nicole Murphy — model, VH1 reality star and former wife of Eddie Murphy. Alas, the wedding is off, and Strahan has jettisoned the nine-bedroom, 14-bath house that was big enough for his four children and her five.
About that split in August, Strahan’s rep told People: “They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain the relationship.”
Nine kids probably didn’t help love blossom, either.
But, back to the 15,600-square-foot house, which features:
- Prohibition-style wine cellar
- Two laundry rooms
- Air filtration system in library to handle cigar smoke
- Nine bedroom-and-bath suites
- Gym, game room and sauna.
Strahan had been seeking $23 million for the home, but it looks like he decided a $5.5 million profit was enough.
