LA is one of the capitals of America’s hyper-wealthy. If there’s one way to flaunt your financial health, it’s by out-excessing every other billionaire there and buying the most expensive mansion in the city.
Not To Show Off, But…
Amazon CEO, future trillionaire, and probable supervillain Jeff Bezos is the man who performed this financial feat. He reportedly scraped together some pocket change to buy the Warner Estate, LA’s most expensive mansion.
How Cheap Was It?!
Between running Amazon and brainstorming his villainous alter-ego, Jeff Bezos dipped into his pocket change and spent $165 million on the prestigious home. In all, Bezos may have been surprised at how little he had to spend on it.
A Historic Estate
The Warner Estate, which inside sources have told us may be renamed «Bezos Evil Inc.», is nearly a century old. Jack Warner, former President of Warner Bros. ordered the construction of the mansion at the height of the Great Depression. How poetic!
More Like a Private Resort
This mansion makes other mansions look like McDonalds franchises. The grounds contain a tennis court, a golf course, and entire guest homes!
When it comes to money, $165 million sounds like a lot; for this hyper-billionaire, it’s nothing. If you make $30,000 a year, imagine spending $37.50 and buying a super-mansion!
A Potential Lair?
Dunking on the lesser wealthy is an admirable goal, but is that’s all that’s going on here? What reason could Jeff Bezos have for buying such an expansive property? The possibility that he’s employing underpaid Amazon workers to build an underground supervillain lair cannot be dismissed.
