Fallen superproducer Scott Storch lost his 20,000-square-foot Palm Island mansion to foreclosure. 

He paid $10.5 million for the pad in 2006, but SunTrust Bank foreclosed on the property last year and bought it back at auction for $5.5 million. 

Now the property, known by the classy and sophisticated name of Villa Ferrari, has been sold to the co-owner of Rockstar Energy Drink, Russell Weiner, for the low, low price of $6.75 million. 

Weiner, incidently, isn't just a self-made caffeine mogul; he's also the son of Michael Savage -- probably one of the more controversial voices on right-wing talk radio. He's the guy who once told a gay caller: "You should only get AIDS and die, you pig."

In 1996, he along with his father cofounded the Paul Revere Society, which aims to "bring together Americans who actively seek to take back our borders, our language, and our traditional culture from the liberal left corroding our great nation."

Gee, someone who wants to protect the English language and "traditional culture" has a dad who is a giant homophobe. Well, he should get along charmingly with his Miami Beach neighbors. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
