He made her an offer that was tough to refuse.
Zaki Amin, the widower-husband of the late celebrity hair stylist Oribe, has sold their Miami Beach mansion to Brooklyn-born Chris Paciello — an ex-mobster turned club owning FBI informant who also hobnobbed with celebrities.
The Mediterranean-style villa at 5645 North Bay Road was last asking $3.8 million.
Charged in the murder of a woman shot in the head during a Staten Island home invasion, Paciello served six years on racketeering charges and became an owner of South Beach nightspots including Club Liquid, with Madonna pal Ingrid Casares as a partner.
In 2012, he opened Bianca, a restaurant, at the Delano South Beach hotel.
At 5,128 square feet, his new home features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two half baths and sits on 0.42 acres.
The home was built in 1931 and features cathedral-beamed ceilings, a stone fireplace, a family room with vaulted ceilings, a formal dining room and an eat-in chef’s kitchen.
There’s also a pool and outdoor kitchen on the property.
The listing brokers were Laura Cresto and Bill Hernandez, of Douglas Elliman.
