MIAMI, United States – Entertainer Jennifer Lopez is no longer from the block, but British rocker Phil Collins is. He snapped up a Miami Beach mansion she once called home for a cool $33 million.

“It’s true, Mr. Collins purchased this house,” Mathieu Rochette at Barclay’s Real Estate Group, who represented Collins in the transaction, told AFP on Tuesday.

“It’s amazing, one of the best houses in Miami,” Rochette said. The home also boasts its own boat slip, pool and koi pond.

The house was sold to Collins by businessman Mark Gainor. Gainor in turn bought it from Lopez, in 2005, for $13.5 million before renovating it from top to bottom.

Collins, the realtor said, also likes that his Miami home has quite a bit of tree cover.

One of his neighbors will be Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

Now 64, Collins — the former Genesis member who turned solo pop superstar — is a songwriter, producer, actor and author.
