Audubon Drive sale update: Bill Burk reports: "NOT OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED yet, but it's reported that Mike Curb, the 2nd person to "buy" Elvis' old house at 1034 Audubon Drive, Memphis, will "donate the house to Rhodes College."
The house was sold on eBay and it was first announced that Uri Geller of England had submitted the winning bid of $905,100. Days later, it was reported that sale had not been finalized (both sides issue differing reports as to WHY) . . . and that the house had been sold a 2nd time to Mike Curb for about $1 million. Curb was owner of Curb Records and one time served as lieutenant governor of California.
GELLER HAS SAID he would sue the sellers -- Mike Freeman and Cindy Hazen -- and eBay. He is said to have hired a top-ranked U.S. legal firm to represent him in this affair. EW has expressed an opinion this matter will probably be settled out of court, but Geller's camp resoundingly says "NO !!" MEANWHILE, Hazen and Freeman are scheduled to re-appear in Bankruptcy Court on 17 August.
SOON AS THIS THING finalizes, one way or another, will let y'all know."
