You didn’t think we’d roll into the weekend without final word on 2007 Fifth Avenue, better known as the partially renovated townhouse owned by rapper DMX? Fans of celebrity trauma will recall that the place was set to be auctioned off on Wednesday at a sheriff’s auction. A Curbed operative reports in with news so completely unbelievable that we’ll just cut straight to it: “I just spoke with Daniel Eigerman, Esq., plaintiff’s counsel. And holy crap, it sold for $120,000! I’m dying here. Let me write it out. One hundred twenty thousand dollars. Give or take, there’s still some finalizing with the sheriff’s department, and the full payment/closing takes three business days. As the attorney describes it, that’s actually ‘barely a whisker above’ one-third of the value of the judgment they obtained against X. So he’s in the hospital, arrested at Wal-Mart, AND losing $1 million on his townhouse, all within 24 hours. A rough day.”
