Chris Cornell Paid Surprising Amount In Rent At Final Home


The Miami Herald reported last month that Chris Cornell’s home for the last 6 years of his life was a $6 million condo at a luxury high-rise complex in Miami Beach.

Cornell never bought the three-bedroom, four-bathroom, 3,000-square-foot apartment. His rent over the years went from $28,000 to $30,000 a month.

“I don’t know why he never bought a place here,” said the singer’s landlady, 72-year-old Daisy Afrooz. “It seems he had the money. He seemed pretty happy just renting.”

Afrooz said the condo was the home Cornell always came back to after tours and travels.

“He was very unassuming, a wonderful tenant with whom we never had a problem in six years,” she said. “No loud music or parties. A perfect gentleman. We used to see him and his beautiful family at the pool and the restaurant. He was great.”

Afrooz’s grown children, she says, were “thrilled” when they received word Cornell was moving in. She had never heard of him until then.

“Most people at the Continuum knew who he was,” Afrooz said. “But this was the kind of place he could be in peace.

“We’re devastated. He was such a good guy.”
