Rapper Nelly sells abandoned St. Louis mansion after a week on the market

Rapper Nelly, born Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., found a buyer for his abandoned home in the St. Louis area just days after entering the market, The Post reports.
The 12-acre property was first listed on February 11, only to receive an offer on February 18, Missouri real estate records show. The $ 600,000 price tag must have been attractive enough for someone to grab the property quickly.

Nelly, 46, bought the house in 2002 for an estimated $ 2 million in the hope of being able to turn it around. But the mansion has stood still for two decades. It seems that this year the “Hot in Herre” singer decided to cut his losses and sell the property cheaply.
