Rapper Nelly sells abandoned St. Louis mansion after a week on the market

It really must be the money. 

Rapper Nelly, born Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., has already found a buyer for his abandoned St. Louis-area home only days after it hit the market, The Post can report. 

The 12-acre estate was first listed on Feb. 11, only to have an offer Feb. 18, Missouri property records show. The price point, at $600,000, must have been appealing enough for someone to snatch up the property quickly.

But whoever the new owner is will have a lot of work on their hands to get the place up and running. With no plumbing, no flooring and plenty of renovations left to be done, this is what those in the biz call a “fixer-upper.”

Nelly, 46, bought the home back in 2002 for an estimated $2 million, hoping to flip it. But the mansion has sat idle for the past two decades. It seems this year, the “Hot in Herre” singer decided to cut his losses and sell the property for cheap.

Built in 1998, the home is situated about 30 miles from St. Louis and only minutes away from the Hidden Valley Ski Resort in the nearby city of Eureka. 

The six-bedroom, seven-bathroom house, located in Wildwood, was robbed in 2009. It’s uncertain what exactly was stolen from this fairly vacant structure.
