Thierry Henry Moves Into Heath Ledger’s Old Manor

After months of presumably crashing on friend's sofas and living an Alan Partridge like existence in travel lodges, the good news is that Thierry Henry has finally splashed out on a snazzy New York flat.

The bad news is that Heath Ledger—star of the cowboy sex comedy Brokeback Mountain —died in the very same building.

Other ex-celebrity residents haunting the hallways include: Lenny Kravitz, Courtney Love, and the former recipient of Tom Cruise's excitable wolf-like tongue, Nicole Kidman.


According to reports, Thierry strode in, saw the place, bought the top two floors, and has now forked out for the apartment below as well—totalling around $15million.

The place comes complete with a bamboo garden, a massive telly, and a "rain shower".
