Trina Venit, the longtime wife of powerhouse former WME agent Adam Venit and a self-styled producer and philanthropist, is decamping her 15,000-square-foot 90210 mansion in favor of a 6,000-square-foot contemporary villa set just above the bustling Sunset Strip. With dazzling city lights views, an open-concept floorplan and a huge motorcourt with room for 10 cars, the place is primed for an epic party.
The 52-year-old’s new real estate purchase probably has something to do with her ongoing marital dissolution — legal records show Adam Venit, repped by powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser, filed for divorce back in March. That marks quite a change from 2017, when Trina staunchly stood by her husband’s side during his highly-publicized sexual assault scandal, when actor Terry Crews sued WME, accusing Venit of groping his genitals at a party. (WME settled with Crews the following year, Venit left the agency shortly thereafter.)
No word yet on what will become of the couple’s longtime family home, a titanic Mediterranean-style mansion high in the mountains above Beverly Hills, tucked into a little-known gated community christened Bella Vista, where some of their neighbors include Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Saudi prince Khalid Al-Faisal, and “Parasite” film producer (and billionaire Samsung heir) Jay Lee.
As for the new Hollywood Hills house, it cost Trina $7.8 million — certainly a lot of money, but a whopping $1.4 million less than the $9.2 million paid for the spec-built structure in 2017 by the seller, musician Nick Gross. With taxes, hefty realtor fees, and maintenance factored into the equation, Gross’ total losses on this transfer probably zoomed close to $2 million; good thing his parents are the now-divorced billionaires Bill and Sue Gross, two prolific real estate ballers with virtually unlimited funds. Nick, now in his early 30s, has moved on to an $18.5 million penthouse at the new West Hollywood Edition residences.
