In the era of COVID and lockdowns, having your own house is like a god-sent. Thankfully, most, if not all, celebs have really nice cribs filled with stuffed garages, swimming pools, and home cinemas, so you know they’re having the best time of their life. Sometimes living in the same luxurious villa is just too tiresome, and the stars decide it’s time to move on to a different location. That’s just how real estate works.
Here are the most expensive celebrity villas sold in 2021.
1. Shaquille O’Neal — Florida Compound ($11 million)
Shaq bought his iconic crib in 1993 for less than $4 million, and almost 30 years later, it was put up on the market for $28 mil. Sadly, that was a huge overestimation, and the Florida house with 12 bedrooms, a home theater, and marble floors was eventually sold for a measly $11 mil.
2. Justin Bieber — Beverly Hills Mansion ($8 million)
In 2019, JB posted photos of his Beverly Hills villa on Instagram and asked if anyone would like to buy it. Again, on the Instagram. Almost a year ago, in February, someone did finally pay $8 mil for that crib. It was a great flip, considering Bieber bought that 6000-square-foot mansion with five bedrooms and a wine cellar for just $500k.
3. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill — Island in the Bahamas ($35 million)
What do you do with a 20-acre island? Plant seeds? Raise cattle? Or maybe build a 6000-square-foot house with four bedrooms? It’s funny how you can buy an island, but you’ll still need to build all the facilities. That probably includes things like the docks and toilets. So it’s no wonder Tim and Faith were willing to sell their piece of paradise. I’d take indoor plumbing over four bedrooms any day of the week!
