(Reuters) - Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk has sold one of his homes in the Bel-Air area of Los Angeles for $29 million, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing public records.
"I am selling almost all physical possessions. Will own no house," Musk had said https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1256239554148724737 in a tweet on May 1.
The buyer is a company tied to Chinese billionaire William Ding, the report said. He is the founder and chief executive officer of online gaming firm NetEase Inc (NASDAQ: NTES).
Musk bought the house for $17 million in 2012 from Mitchell Julis, co-founder of hedge fund Canyon Capital Advisors, according to the report.
Musk still owns other properties in the area, the WSJ report said.
