Radio talker Neil Rogers would be reeling — if he could.
The administration of the estate of longtime WQAMer Rogers, who died of a slew of ailments in a hospice, is finished — and the IRS became his biggest beneficiary.
Lawyers got a nice chunk of change, too.
Rogers, who was 68 when he died on Christmas Eve 2010, didn’t seem to do much estate planning.
“He spent too much time at the horse track,” said Norman Kent, his agent. “At least, he spent a lot of his money. He had $4 million four years ago and had $600,000 left when he died.”
In all, about $500,000 from the Canadian-born Rogers poured into Uncle Sam’s coffers while $100,000 is being paid to trustees and lawyers.
“Neil cashed in taxable annuities,” Kent said. “Unfortunately, he didn’t pay taxes on them.”
Fading NFL star Terrell Owens staved off foreclosure on his Sunny Isles Beach condo this month when a Bahamas-based company bought the 50th-floor unit from Owens for $100,000 less than what he paid for it six years ago.
Miami-Dade County property records show Pagode Limited paid $1.65 million for the 2,100-square-foot apartment at Trump International.
Owens can now settle his $1.4 million mortgage from Deutsche Bank and the $9,000-plus the building’s condo association claims he owes in maintenance fees.
Owens, 38, is still looking desperately for a team after stints with the San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills.
Miami beach scene
Pop star Katy Perry can be found poolside at the SoHo Beach House hotel in Miami Beach these days.
Can’t miss her. She’s the one with a fedora on her head and a skimpy bikini on parts of her.
The 27-year-old chart-topping singer of Firework and I Kissed a Girl spent most of last week at the hotel with family members, including her 91-year-old grandmother.
Singer John Mayer, who’s rumored to have replaced comic Russell Brand in Perry’s heart, has been nowhere in sight.
On the road again
Former NBA All Star Kenny Anderson was cleared of fleeing the scene of a Broward County car crash in which he admitted to boozing — but his driving continues to be a problem.
Anderson, 41, who played for the New Jersey Nets and Boston Celtics, got picked up by red-light cameras not just once but twice over the past four months, according to Broward court records. Cost him a total of $316!
Meanwhile Anderson, who has two daughters with Basketball Wives’ Tami Roman, was cleared of leaving the scene of a mysterious car crash in December in which he lost control of his Cadillac Escalade and slammed into two trees in Miramar.
He wasn’t injured but was arrested when he returned to the scene. According to the police report, Anderson had bloodshot eyes and smelled of booze and he even admitted to drinking. But he wasn’t charged with DUI because he could’ve claimed he drank after returning home.
A court recently dismissed the careless driving ticket and withheld adjudication on the leaving the scene rap.
