Madonna's Miami Beach rental villa is for sale

Written by CNN Staff

There’s a new listing for sale in Miami. It’s a villa once owned by megastar Madonna , which is now headed for the auction block.

Her new ownership slate was cleared in July, when the singer testified in a lawsuit brought by David Fonda against her for wrongful eviction. In the suit, Fonda accused Madonna of flouting a stipulation in their lease, which required them to live with their owners in New York.

CNN documented Fonda’s allegations in a report from last year. He alleged that Madonna and her lover paid $9,000 for a lease in Miami Beach, a far cry from the nearly $150,000 rental she was legally obligated to pay.

Now, a former assistant to David Fonda has secured the deed for the rental property, located at 767 Lombard St. in Miami Beach.

Colin Appleton acquired the deed in the death of the three-year leaseholder, Helena Murray.

The property itself is in the heart of Miami Beach, with panoramic views of the Atlantic. If it’s sold, proceeds from the sale will go to Fonda, Appleton told CNN in an email.
