Celebrity Real Estate: Puff Daddy, Playboy Mansion, Rebel Wilson
By Laura Vecsey
Diddy Digs Dropping Down the Charts
Puff Daddy or P. Diddy or whatever Sean Combs is calling himself these days is really, really ready to divest of his Manhattan crib. The music mogul has slashed another $2 million off his party pad near Central Park for a new list price of $6.5 million.
He’s been trying to sell the place since 2012 and with a $39 million mansion he bought two years ago in L.A., Combs has little use for the condo, which features a soaking tub and a wet bar.
Playboy Mansion Comes With Heffner
Hugh Hefner’s neighbor, Daren Metropoulos, has dibs on the Playboy Mansion. Despite an initial list price of $200 million, a $120 million deal was struck that allows Metropoulos to assume possession of the 5.3-acre spread after Heffner’s has passed away.
The famous Holmby Hills estate has 29 rooms and over 20,000 square feet of interior space, plus a separate 4-bedroom guest house. Oh yeah, and there’s the spa grotto.
Rebel, Rebel, She Bought a House
With her “The Little Mermaid” alter ego “Ursula” taking a break after a live run of the play at the Hollywood Bowl, Rebel Wilson took a moment to buy herself a little gift: a $2.95 million home in the Hollywood Hills.
This is the second L.A. property for the Australian comedian and actress, who paid $2.2 million in 2014 for a smaller pad, also in the Hollywood Hills. The new digs sprawl over 4,000 square feet and contain 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
