Kate Winslet Leasing Her NY Penthouse For $30K - Check It Out!

Katie Holmes isn’t the only famous divorcee putting her NYC apartment on the rental market following a divorce: Kate Winslet has reportedly just put her Chelsea penthouse up for lease.

The condo has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a 1,700 square foot terrace. It was purchased by Winslet and her ex-husband, Sam Mendes, in 2004 for $4.995 million.

When Winslet and Mendes broke up two years ago, the process of divvying assets began, and it’s just reached the New York apartment: Mendes transferred the deed to Winslet for $2.5 million, leaving it in her hands.

There’s no word on where Kate and her two kids, Mia and Joe, are staying now, though we’re sure they’re not struggling to find a roof. Kate is currently dating the nephew of eccentric bazillionaire Richard Branson, with perhaps the dumbest name ever: Ned Rocknroll.

He changed it legally from Ned Abel Smith a few years ago (ie, not when he was 15, he was in his 30s). It’s even worse considering that he’s not a musician, but an exec at Branson’s space travel company, Virgin Galactic.

Winslet and Rocknroll met on Necker Island, where she saved Ned’s grandmother from a burning mansion.

So if you want to live in the Titanic star’s old pad and have $30,000 a month to spare (or if you’re just a masochist and enjoy looking at pictures of ridiculously luxurious apartments you will never afford), check out pictures of the condo!
