Filomena Manente’s infamous gesture at Joakim Noah

Filomena Manente, the woman caught flipping off Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah during a May 2013 playoff game against the Miami Heat, sold another Palm Beach County property at a loss, The Real Deal has learned.

Manente, who recently changed her last name from Tobias, got $1.1 million for a 0.33-acre parcel at 7725 South Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach last week, according to Palm Beach County records. She paid $1.8 million for the property in October 2004. Sophie Sharp of West Palm Beach is the buyer.

In March, Manente sold a home at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter for $3.8 million, a $700,000 discount from the $4.5 million she paid for the property in November 2006.

The millionaire widow of hedge fund mogul Seth Tobias, Manente became an Internet sensation when a picture of her making an obscene gesture at Noah went viral. Noah was walking off the court after being ejected during his team’s loss to the Heat.

Seth Tobias was found dead in his pool at the Jupiter home in 2007. Six years ago, Palm Beach County prosecutors cleared Manente of wrongdoing in her husband’s death, which was officially ruled as a heart attack. Seth Tobais’ brothers had accused Manente of causing his death.
