Throughout 2011 and 2012, Susan Sarandon figured significantly to her real estate portfolio. Following her separation with Tim Robbins, Sarandon paid her ex $3.2 million in order to have entire ownership over the six-bedroom duplex the couple participated in Chelsea, Manhattan. That same month, she also splurged on a $1.75-million, a one-bedroom penthouse in Greenwich Village. In July 2020 Susan listed the six-bedroom Chelsea duplex for $7.9 million.
