Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has purchased a sexy new pad in Manhattan.
And by sexy we mean the condo is the spot where 50 Shades of Grey’s Christian Grey played out his sadistic sexual fantasies.
That’s right, the Real Madrid forward, a sex icon in his own right, is set to move into the condo formerly owned by the man believed to be the inspiration for Christian Grey, the lead character in the series of bestselling, sexually-charged literature.
So, yeah, the place has been ‘Christened’ a few times.
The previous owner was Alessandro Proto, a real estate entrepreneur who clocked hours of X-rated adult fun throughout the three-bedroom, 2,150-square-foot residence.
The corner unit offers stunning views of Central Park to the north, the Hudson River to the west, and views of Manhattan’s most iconic buildings to the south.
The apartment doesn’t include the famous “Red Room of Pain” featured in the books – but Ronaldo certainly has the dollars to change that, should he feel so inclined.
One thing’s for sure: he definitely has some big shoes to fill.
Located in the Trump Tower on Fifth Ave., the condo sold for a cool US $18.5 million, according to the New York Post.
