Mickey Rooney's House Sells for $1.3 Million

Unknown-15Due to his failing health, 92-year old Mickey Rooney had to move out of his long-time home in Westlake Village and into the smaller residence of his stepson in the west San Fernando Valley. Yesterday, a probate judge approved the sale of the Westlake Village home.

Judge Reva Goetz ruled that Kapilack Investments LLC could buy the home for $1.03 million.  The proceeds will be split between Rooney ($500,000) and his current wife, Janice Rooney ($525,000). Rooney's conservator reported that Rooney and his wife will be living apart, but they will not take any legal action to end the marriage.

Sad. He has starred in so many movies and tv shows and it comes to this...a woman who is getting over half of the (so she can get the rest when he goes) money hungry bitch.
