Filomena Tobias, the woman caught flipping off Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah during last year’s playoff series against the Miami Heat, took a $700,000 loss on the sale of her home at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, The Real Deal has learned.

Tobais sold the 188 Bear’s Club Drive residence for nearly $3.8 million on March 31, according to Palm Beach County records. The county recorded the transaction on Tuesday. Tobias paid about $4.5 million for the 6,704-square-foot home in November 2006.

Thomas and Jan Hassfurther are the buyers of the two-story, five-bedroom house, which was constructed on 1.3 acres in 2002. The couple obtained a $2.6 million mortgage from Wells Fargo Bank for the purchase.

Jack Nicklaus’s Bear’s Club community has numerous high-profile property owners, including basketball legend Michael Jordan and tennis star Serena Williams.

The millionaire widow of hedge fund mogul Seth Tobias, Filomena Tobias became an Internet sensation when a picture of her making an obscene gesture at Noah went viral in May 2013. 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 Filomena of wrongdoing in her husband’s death, which was officially ruled as a heart attack. Seth Tobais’ brothers had accused Filomena of causing his death.
