First reported here on the SBCB, A-Rod, who was under contract on the “major” estate located at 26 Star Island Drive, excercised his right to “walk” from the deal on Shaq’s property on Star Island in Miami Beach, according to the Miami Herald

Alex ”A-Rod” Rodriguez, who signed a contract to buy Shaquille O’Neal’s mansion on Miami Beach’s Star Island, took an intentional walk from the deal. The house, which Shaq bought for $18.8 million in ’04, is listed at $32 million.

A-Rod’s wife Cynthia is expecting a baby in April and wants to remain near her folks, John and Evangeline Scurtis, who live in Coconut Grove. That’s why Rodriguez exercised a 30-day termination clause.
