Bette Midler, the 75 year old actress and singing legend, has finally found a buyer for her luxury Manhattan penthouse. The apartment sold for its $50 million asking price after spending two years on the market. Many celebs have recently taken loses on their homes, even in New York, due to the coronavirus recession. But Bette Midler, so it would seem, has a magic touch not only in her professional career but in her real estate choices as well as she did not drop the price on the apartment to dump it as others have done.
