HONOLULU — A sprawling beachfront home used in the filming of the 1980s television show "Magnum, P.I." has sold for $8.7 million to a close friend of President Barack Obama.

An attorney for Marty Nesbitt said Thursday that his client bought the property. Seth Madorsky says Nesbitt didn't have any partners or co-investors in the deal.

The 3-acre property is in Waimanalo, next to the town of Kailua where the Obama family has spent the winter holidays in recent years.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Friday that Obama was not behind the purchase.

Tom Selleck's character lived in the house on "Magnum P.I." It was known as "Robin's Nest" on the show.

Nesbitt is a Chicago businessman who served as treasurer for Obama's first presidential run. He is the chairman of the Barack Obama Foundation, which will build the president's future library.
