Indie film bad boy Vincent Gallo, known for his controversial films “Buffalo 66” and “The Brown Bunny,” has sold his West Chelsea condo for $2.47 million.
Gallo, who has garnered gossip column headlines for advertising sexual services to women for $50,000 a night and in vitro fertilization for $1 million, purchased the 1,275-square-foot one-bedroom for $2 million in 2013, according to the New York Post. In January 2015, he listed the apartment for $2.95 million.
The identity of the buyer isn’t yet known and listing brokers Leonard Steinberg and Hervé Senequier declined to comment on the deal, according to the Post.
The apartment — located in the Jean Nouvel-designed 100 11th Avenue at 19th Street — features a corner living room with terrazzo floors, a curved wall of windows, stainless-steel chef’s kitchen and a private balcony.
Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, a gym and a 70-foot lap pool.
Gallo’s Cannes Film Festival debut of “The Brown Bunny” was famously panned by Roger Ebert, who called the film “the worst film in the history of the festival.” He later wrote:
“I had a colonoscopy once, and they let me watch it on TV. It was more entertaining than ‘The Brown Bunny.’”
