"It looks like Tom made a lucrative offer the home owner just couldn't refuse," an insider revealed. "They made a handshake deal for all cash."
But it seems the home that Tom's now buying may be a grand graduation present for their youngest son, brainy 22 year-old Truman.
"Tom and Rita are beyond proud of Truman, who recently graduated from Stanford University."
As RadarOnline.com readers know, eldest son Chet has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, and the family is currently fighting a court battle against a Los Angeles man who said Chet was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol when Chet hit his vehicle on the freeway Feb. 13, 2015.
But Chet is now celebrating two years sober and has even wrapped a recurring role as Blake on Empire.
