Gossip extra: Boxer Mayweather puts Sunny Isles crib on the market

Star boxer Floyd Mayweather has listed his Miami-area penthouse for sale.

Price tag for the 3,000-square-foot condo at St. Tropez Condominiums in Sunny Isles Beach: $2.6 million.

According to Miami-Dade County records, the 37-year-old winner of 10 world titles bought the crib in 2010 for $1.5 million through his Las Vegas company.

Mayweather paid cash, records show, just three months after making $60 million-plus in his pay-per-view defeat of Shane Mosley.

The four-bedroom condo at 150 Sunny Isles Blvd., listed with Tanasha Pettigrew at Fort Lauderdale’s Gallery International Realty, is described as a super-classy palace in the sky.

It comes furnished by Miami interior designer Steven G.

“It’s turnkey,” Pettigrew said. “It’s a great place to entertain because of the wide-open layout.”

Pettigrew says Mayweather, who uses the condo for about two weeks a year, is looking for a single-family house in Miami Beach or Coral Gables.

“He wants to leave condo life for a house,” Pettigrew said. “His four children are getting older, they are now 12 to 15 years old, so he wants them to be able to run around.”

One of Justin Bieber’s bodyguards was grilled by the lawyer of a Miami Beach photographer who’s suing the troubled singer — and he pleaded the fifth half a dozen times.

Davie resident Hugo Hesny, Bieber’s muscle, was questioned for nearly three hours Wednesday at the Fort Lauderdale office of Hesny’s attorney, Elias Hillel.

In addition to invoking the right of not responding to questions so as not to incriminate himself, the 32-year-old Hesny swore under oath that he never touched any photographer anywhere while working for Bieber.

Hesny’s lucky his saggy shorts didn’t catch on fire: There’s plenty of video footage online and several arrests to prove otherwise.

Mark DiCowden, the local photographer’s attorney, questioned Hesny. He declined to comment, and Hillel didn’t return calls.

Hesny admitted to asking photographers to delete photos — but denied doing it on Bieber’s orders.

Hesny was questioned about the incident outside the Hit Factory recording studio in June 2013, when he allegedly attacked paparazzo Jeffery Binion while Bieber recorded new music inside.

Hesny said he did walk across the street to Binion and asked him, nicely, to delete the photos.

Binion claims he was manhandled by Hesny, and he wants millions in damages from Bieber.


Something strange is happening on Star Island, the island off the MacArthur Causeway that’s home to 98 very rich, very famous folks: There are currently four properties up for rent, out of just 32.

Singer Gloria Estefan is offering one of her guest houses for $30,000 a month. There’s developer Tom Kramer’s foreclosed crib, for rent at $150,000 a month. Other villas are going for $65,000 and $75,000 a month.

Rentals tucked between $100 million properties?

“It is unusual to have that many rentals there,” says high-end Realtor Ben Moss. “In listings above $10 million, there’s a three-year inventory. Some investors prefer renting out for a while.

“But for some sophisticated buyers with $50 million to spend, this could cause the island to lose some of its luster.”
