Ever so quietly, the family of deceased Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb sold his Miami home late last year.
And public records recording the sale — at a steep loss — show the purchase was made by a company controlled by lawyer Cesar Alvarez, executive chairman of the mega-law firm Greenberg Traurig.
A source tells Gossip Extra that Alvarez is all moved in with his galpal, Spanish TV judge Cristina Pereyra.
Gibb died of kidney and liver failure last year after a battle with cancer. He was 62.
In the months leading up to his death, in late 2011, Gibb and wife Dwina put their house at 4770 SW 78th St. in the chi-chi Ponce Davis area on the market for $4.25 million.
The couple moved from another home on North Bay Road in Miami Beach in 2008, and bought the ivy-covered 10,000-square-foot Mediterranean house for $4.3 million — cash.
Alvarez, a Florida International University trustee, pulled the trigger on his purchase after Dwina accepted to unload it for just $3 million, according to records.
Alvarez did not return a call for comment about the purchase.
Alvarez reportedly left his wife and took up with Pereyra, the star of Verdicto Final.
Former Miami Dolphins star Keith Sims was bounced from Broward County radio station WMEN-640 AM.
He is scheduled to work this week and leave after Thursday’s early rounds of the NFL draft. Sims took over the 10 a.m. to noon slot in October.
Sims, a Dolphins offensive lineman through the 1990s, says he hopes to return to the station on time for the football season in late summer.
Sims came on board after former Fins teammate Troy Stradford was fired for complaining bitterly on the air about the arrival of morning talk host Sid Rosenberg.
“The station is all about baseball right now,” Sims said. “They’ve got New York Yankees baseball and they want to go big on that. They know I do football mostly, so they thought it’d be best if I took a sabbatical.”
Insiders tell Gossip Extra that Sims couldn’t keep the audience that Rosenberg brings into the shift change.
“I came in the radio business with my eyes wide open. I know how it works,” Sims added.
If Ryan Lochte’s alma mater is truly proud of him as his big reality show debuts tonight on E!, its leaders sure are keeping it quiet.
“No comment,” is what you get from the University of Florida honchos when you ask about What Would Ryan Lochte Do?
It actually took a Florida Sunshine Law request from Gossip Extra for officials to give up any information about whether or not the Gainesville campus cooperated with the producers.
There’s indeed a film permit for E! signed in February by Curtis Reynolds, VP of Business Affairs. He had no comment.
Why the silence?
The 11-Olympic medal winner hasn’t come across as the sharpest knife in the drawer as he hawked the series, assailed by critics showing Lochte as “Superman in the pool” and “super stupid on TV.”
And Lochte’s appearance on Philly’s Fox affiliate last week made him look so dumb the anchors had a two-minute laughing fit that went viral online.
“If you’re a man at night, you’ve got to be a man in the morning,” Lochte told them before they lost it.
Which makes you wonder how Lochte graduated from what’s supposed to be the flagship of Florida’s state education.
