Mick Jagger

News broke today that Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger purchased a home for girlfriend Melanie Hamrick and their 4-year-old son, Devereaux, as a Christmas present. The ballet dancer decided to make Florida her primary residence after leaving the American Ballet Theatre last year to spend more time raising their son. Apparently, the Sarasota property's privacy was a “major factor” in why they chose the home. While the couple usually spends the holidays on the Caribbean island of Mustique, this year they'll be celebrating in London first.

Oscar-nominated star of the “Rocky” and “Rambo” movie franchises is behind the purchase, recorded at $35.375 million, of a lakefront compound on the far North End of town, the Palm Beach Daily News has confirmed.

Stallone, who is married to entrepreneur and former model Jennifer Flavin, is the latest star to join the constellation of celebrities who call Palm Beach home. That list includes rockers Jon Bon Jovi and Rod Stewart, radio and television personality Howard Stern and conservative firebrand Rush Limbaugh.

Completed in 2014, the gated Bermuda-style compound linked to Stallone at 1480 N. Lake Way stands on 1½ acres with 253 feet of lakefront. It features a dock and a sandy beach beyond the seawall.

The sale was financed with a $15 million, 30-year mortgage, courthouse records show.

Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin arrive at the 88th annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles in 2016. Sources have confirmed to the Palm Beach Daily News that the actor is behind a sale recorded Wednesday at $35.375 million for an estate on the North End of Palm Beach.

The estate includes the two-story main residence, a separate guesthouse and a pool pavilion. In all, the property has seven bedrooms and 13,241 square feet of living space, inside and out, according to its sales listing.

French doors in all the buildings face the lakefront, with the open-air cabana directly overlooking the waterfront pool and whirlpool spa.

Stallone, 74, who in the 1990s owned a home on Miami’s Biscayne Bay, took possession of the Palm Beach property in a sale recorded Wednesday by the Palm Beach County Clerk’s office.

Stallone has longtime ties to South Florida. His late father, Frank Stallone Sr., for years had a house in Wellington. Frank Stallone dies in 2011 at 91 and was well known among the village’s polo community.

Sylvester Stallone sold his estate near Coconut Grove in Miami for a recorded $16.2 million in 1999. During his student years, Stallone took classes at Miami Dade College before enrolling in the University of Miami’s acting school, according to online reports.
