Mission Impossible and Pulp Fiction star Ving Rhames is trying to sell two properties where a man (who was attacked by Rhames’ dogs) died.

Jacob Adams, 40, died in 2007 from a heart-attack after he was chased by three bull mastiffs and a bull-dog on the grounds of the actor’s Brentwood home. Adams lived on the actor’s property and acted as a caretaker. He raced through both properties in an attempt to escape.

Rhames listed his 5,900 sq ft five bedroom mansion on San Vicente Boulevard in Brentwood for sale for a cool $6.5 million.The 48-year-old action star already has the adjacent property on the site on the market at $2,099,000. Built in 1993 the $6.5 million home has five and a half bathrooms, a mahogany library, grand staircase, master suite with balcony, three additional suites plus a cook’s kitchen with breakfast area. Outdoor features on the property include mature trees, grassy yard, a pool, fountains and a large two story guest house.


If Rhames manages to sell both listed properties he will be taking a hit in his wallet – he paid 6.5 million for one in August 2006 and $4.75 million for the other back in 2000. After the incident, the Los Angeles County Coroner ruled that although there were dog bites on Jacob Adams body these were not fatal. The dogs were released into Rhames custody and re-located to an estate in Texas.
