Former Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page has bought a new home in central New York next to the apartment where he and his girlfriend were arrested last July for cocaine possession.
Onondaga County real estate records show Page and girlfriend Christine Benedicto paid $265,000 for the four-bedroom house in Fayetteville, in suburban Syracuse. The sale closed June 30.
Cocaine possession charges against Page, Benedicto and Benedicto’s roommate were dismissed in April after they sought counseling and passed drug tests.
Benedicto says Page decided to settle in Fayetteville to accommodate her. Her daughter attends school there.
Page quit the Barenaked Ladies this year to pursue a solo career. The Canadian alternative rock band’s hits include “If I Had $1,000,000” and “Brian Wilson.”
