The Weeknd Just Bought A Ridiculously Large $70 Million Mansion In Bel-Air
Life must be good for The Weeknd because the 31-year-old singer just closed on a massive mansion in Bel-Air.
The $70 million piece of property was previously owned by Reinout Oerleman, a Dutch media mogul. He apparently wasn’t really looking to sell the beautiful property, but when The Weeknd offered him $70 million, he couldn’t turn it down.
The property was sold in an off-market deal when the Oerlemans finally came around to consider selling the place to The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye.
The sprawling property sits on 1.6 acres that overlooks the Bel-Air Country Club. The 33,000-square-foot mansion is composed of nine bedrooms, a sports court, a spa with a sauna, a hammam, an indoor pool, an outdoor infinity pool with a waterfall, a movie theater, a gym and a music studio.
So it’s basically a mini town. The Weeknd can record music, go swimming, play basketball, hit the gym, and then hit up the theater all from the comfort of his own home.
Which is pretty important in these pandemic times.
The Weeknd had previously been chilling in a $25 million Beverly Hills penthouse for the past few years. No word on if he plans to keep that property, or if he’s going to put it on the market.
According to the latest reports, The Weeknd is worth around $100 million, so buying a $70 million home was probably a big decision for him. He must have really loved the place.
Makes you wonder if he has plans to start a family.
