Paul Giamatti sells share of Brooklyn Heights co-op to ex-wife

A publicist says they haven't been married for five years

Updated, Feb. 2, 1:48 p.m.: The Twitter account “Sad Paul Giamatti” may have its work cut out for it.

The “Billions” star just sold his share of a Brooklyn Heights co-op to his ex-wife, director and producer Elizabeth Giamatti, for $1.1 million, according to documents filed with the city’s Department of Finance. The couple bought the home — at 35 Pierrepont Street — in 2002, according to property records. Pricing information was not available.

A publicist for Giamatti said that the property was simply transferred over to Elizabeth Giamatti. She said that the couple hasn’t been married for over five years now — a fact that hasn’t been publicized. In fact, the real estate swap follows some less-than substantial rumors that divorce was on the horizon for the couple. Some reports surfaced on gossip websites and social media this week speculating a split after spotting Giamatti walking alone outside his house. But apparently Giamatti has been able to keep these solo strolls under wraps for more than five years.

The couple married in 1997. Property records indicate that Giamatti also owns a three-bedroom condo at 187 Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights, which he purchased in 2010 for $1.3 million.

On Showtime’s “Billions,” Giamatti plays the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York who’s got it out for a law-skirting hedge fund giant (played by Damian Lewis). He is known for his role as the wine-loving writer in the movie “Sideways,” and also known — probably to a lesser extent — for playing the titular character in the HBO series “John Adams.”

Correction: A previous version of this article indicated that the couple was still married. A publicist for Giamatti says they haven’t been married for five years.
