Limbaugh gets mega millions for condos.
Limbaugh mega millions condo has been sold to an undisclosed buyer. The mega millions condo that Rush Limbaugh owned is just one more tie he severed with New York. Rush Limbaugh sold the condo for mega millions, which was on Fifth Avenue.
Limbaugh, 59, has sold his fully decorated Fifth Avenue penthouse for just under $12.95 million. The 10-room condominium, which features a 30-foot-wide living room with fireplace and four terraces overlooking Central Park at East 86th Street, went into contract Thursday. One broker familiar with the transaction said the final price was about $11.5 million.
In 1994, Rush Limbaugh paid just under $5 million for the apartment. New York state recently adopted a temporary income-tax surcharge to raise more than $3 billion a year. That sparked the conservative radio show host to move out of the state entirely. In fact, he told New York to “drop dead” during his radio broadcast.
What’s also amazing is what he predicted with pro-basketball star LeBron James. Limbaugh predicted that James would bypass New York and join a team in a place like Miami to save $12 million to $20 million a year in state income taxes. James is now playing for the Miami Heat.
