Bin Laden’s brother’s former mansion is in central Florida

December 7, 2012


Check out this story in Vice by OW writer Chris Balogh. Apparently, Balogh stumbled across a mansion that once belonged to Khalil bin Laden, brother of Osama bin Laden. According to the story, Khalil bin Laden and his wife split after 9/11 and left the mansion abandoned for years, before selling it during the Florida real estate boom for more than $4 million. It was foreclosed, then resold and now it belongs to “a paralegal, poker playing, chain-smoking bro-dick” who rents it out for weddings and doesn’t clean the pool. You can read the bizarre slice of life here.
