Lots of Kid Rock's Personal Belongings Left Behind
Amy Trahey, who just purchased the $2 million property, says Kid Rock "seems to have left without so much as cleaning out the refrigerator first." She notes that he left behind lots of liquor and plenty of his 'Badass Beer.'
"I can do curated events for fans only," Trahey tells Crain's Detroit Business. "I think they'd like to sniff the sheets."
Most of Kid Rock's furnishings were also left behind and the American flag pillows pictured below should come as no surprise. Realtor Matt O'Laughlin sold Trahey the property, telling her it's as if "Kid Rock grabbed his underwear and shirts and just took off."
