Thalia, Tommy Mottola Unload Palm Beach House (Gossip Extra)
The couple, married in 2000 after Mottola divorced diva Mariah Carey, bought their exquisite 6,700-square-foot Mediterranean crib in 2008 for $6 million, according to county records.
They managed to unload it for $6.53 million over the past couple weeks.
The sale has yet to be posted on the website of the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s office, but the buyers are rumored to be CCMP Capital equity firm CEO Stephen Murray and his wife Muffie. (Yep, we needed another Muffie in Palm Beach!)
Public records show the house was rebuilt in 2008, right before former Sony music boss Mottola and Thalia bought it. It boasts five bedrooms and seven bathrooms and sits on 0.45 acres.
The structure has two stories and an elevator.
The sale surprised some society observers as Mottola and Thalia appeared to enjoy Palm Beach society.
In season, they were seen often at charity function at The Breakers and Mar-a-Lago.
But they quietly listed the house in March 2011 at first, for $8.25 million.
They pulled it off the market several times, and reinserted it at $7.50 million in January, according to MLS records.
