Newly single Michael Bolton is selling his sprawling estate in Connecticut – because he’s suffering from “empty nest syndrome”.
The veteran crooner has put the Westport mansion on the market for $11 million after his teenage daughters Isa, Holly and Taryn – from his 15-year marriage to Maureen McGuire – recently moved out of the family home.
He told People.com: “Empty nest syndrome, that’s what I have… The reality is, I’m spending so much time in Los Angeles and travelling six or seven months a year and working on my record. My daughters are grown up. When I come home and open the door, I hear an echo: ‘Hello, hello, hello.’”
And Bolton admits he has been feeling particularly lonely since his split from Desperate Housewives actress Nicollette Sheridan last month – but insists they are “still friends”.
He is now using his free time to concentrate on charity work, particularly the domestic violence charity he founded in 1993.
The singer added: “I’m doing what I consider really, really important work. You are supposed to come into your home and feel safe. Violence against women is unacceptable.”
