Actress Sharon Stone has erased a large part of her failed marriage to Phil BRONSTEIN from her life, after selling the home they once shared for close to $15 million(GBP7.8 million).

The 47-year-old BASIC INSTINCT star's old San Francisco, California, home, which boasts seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and views of the Pacific Ocean, was purchased by Stone and her then-husband Bronstein in 1998.

The residence was once owned by PHOEBE HEARST - mother of legendary newspaperman WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST - whose character was played by Agnes MOOREHEAD in the thinly veiled classic biopic, Citizen Kane.

Stone and Bronstein's divorce was officially finalised early last year (04).
