Roger Ailes has purchased an oceanfront mansion in Palm Beach, Fla., The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The former Fox News chief bought the six-bedroom, 10-bathroom home for $36 million on Sept. 19. The purchase was made in the name of a trust from City National Bank of Florida.

Ailes’ newly purchased home sits on 10,156 square feet and comes with oceanfront views. The mansion, built in 2015, was first listed for $42 million back in March.

In July, Ailes left Fox News with a multimillion-dollar severance package after facing a slew of sexual-harassment allegations from former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson and other female staff members at Fox.

Carlson, the first to come forward and bring a firestorm of attention upon Ailes, walked away with a $20 million settlement earlier this month. Andrea Tantaros brought her own lawsuit against Ailes in August, alleging that Fox News "operated like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny." Ailes is reportedly set to fight back.
