We’re a little bit late to report this, but thought most of our readers would still like to know.

Kid Rock, the Michigan-born rapper and musician, sold his 6,000-square-foot mansion in the Joseph Berry Subdivision for $2 million in a cash sale in August, according to an MLS listing. It went up for sale in July this year for $2.2 million through Skyline Realty Group.

According to the Wayne County Register of Deeds, the home built in 1930 was purchased by Detroit Boathouse LLC, which has a mailing address of 1 Kercheval Avenue in Grosse Pointe Farms.

The American Colonial sits on the East Riverfront and has direct access to the Detroit River. It comes with a boathouse that has jet ski lifts and two outdoor TVs. Inside, there’s six bedrooms, a recreation room with a poker table and wet bar, and a very red dining room. It’s gotten some renovations in the recent past, including a new kitchen and metal ceiling tiles on the second floor.

Kid Rock has never shied away from controversy, but these last few weeks have been especially turbulent for the outspoken musician. He declined to renew the licensing agreement for his Made in Detroit restaurant, which leased space in Little Caesars Arena, after backlash from a drunken rant against Oprah Winfrey at his Nashville bar. On the same day, operators of the bar and grill reached a settlement agreement with a former employee in a racial discrimination lawsuit.

On December 4, Kid Rock made a Facebook post essentially saying he’s done with Detroit. Later that day, the Detroit News wrote an editorial titled, “Hey, Kid Rock, Detroit is done with you.”

Rock also owns homes in Nashville, Alabama, and northern Oakland County.
