Apparently being neighbors with Taylor Swift wasn’t enough to keep Orlando Bloom tied to his Tribeca pad, as the British actor has sold the apartment less than a year after purchasing it.
The three-bedroom apartment, at 155 Franklin Street, was only on the market for about 20 days before selling, the New York Daily News reported. Bloom, who has starred in the “Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, bought the place in June of last year for $4.88 million, soon after Swift bought her penthouse unit in the same building. Paparazzi have been known to swarm the place, snapping shots of Swift and pals like Karlie Kloss and Selena Gomez.
Bloom relisted it in February for $5.5 million with Douglas Elliman’s Raphael De Niro, who declined to comment on the sale or confirm the purchase price, according to the newspaper. [NYDN] — Tess Hofmann
