“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to manage the sale of this one-of-a-kind property,” said Lamar Fisher, President and CEO of Fisher Auction Company, who is handling the sale, set for September 17.

In 1997, the 50-year-old Versace was shot dead in front of the property by Andrew Cunanan who later committed suicide.

Versace had purchased the home in 1992 and spent about $33m (£21.7m) renovating and adding another wing.

Tourists can still routinely be spotted taking photos in front of the house.

The property had been operating as a 10-room boutique hotel for several years but closed earlier this year.

A bankruptcy court has appointed Fisher Auction Company to handle the sale, in conjunction with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate.

Versace had many famous friends including Princess Diana, Madonna, Elton John and Cher.

Legendary singer Stevie Wonder is boycotting the state of Florida

According to the Hollywood Reporter the “Ribbon In The Sky” singer will not perform in Florida until its Stand Your Ground law is “abolished.” He added that he won’t perform in any state that recognizes the law, which many say helped defend Zimmerman when he shot and killed Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012 in what he claimed was self-defense.

“I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again,” Wonder said this weekend while performing in Quebec City. “As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.”
