‘Knight Rider’s’ Rebecca Holden and Record Producer Husband Joel Diamond’s Car Destroyed by Oak Tree
Star “Knight Rider” Rebecca holden and her record producer husband, Joel diamond, had a rude awakening in the dead of night … an oak tree crashed into their property and cost them a car in the process.
Joel tells TMZ … he and Rebecca were woken up late Friday night by a loud noise literally tearing apart their home in Calabasas. It turned out to be part of a nearby 6 ton oak tree that had tipped over for some reason. We’re told the tree burst through their bedroom window … and also crashed three vehicles below.
Sadly, one of those cars was Joel’s prized classic Jaguar – the rear of which was completely demolished by fallen wood. A total loss, without a doubt. What sucks is that Joel tells us he had just recovered the whip from an auto body shop 2 days before.
No one was hurt, thankfully, but it seems a few of Joel’s friends were quite impressed with the freak phenomenon. Singer Tony orlando – known for his # 1 hit, “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” – made a crack … saying that among all the trees he had bandaged over the years, Joel and Rebecca were from and by far the most remarkable.
Also … Joel says a great arborist in the area came and valued the giant oak tree, valuing it at around $ 250,000. Talk about money growing on trees, eh ???
