The Weeknd Is The New Owner Of A $70 Million Bel Air Estate

August 20, 2021 / Posted by:

Did you know The Weeknd is rich enough to purchase a $70 million estate in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles? Well, apparently he is, and that’s just what he did. He went ahead and bought a huge 33,000 square foot compound that looks like a house made in The Sims after unlocking a character called “Very Successful Music Guy.

TMZ says that The Weeknd was in the market for a new home, but he didn’t shop for his new home in a regular way. He told his real estate agents to knock on the door of the 33,000 square foot Bel Air mansion he liked the best and make the owners an offer. He went to the owner of a Bel-Air estate and basically said, “Better call U-Haul, because I’m about to make you an offer you’d be dumb to refuse.” via TMZ:

We’ve confirmed the home’s prior owners – Reinout Oerlemans, a Dutch media mogul, and his wife, Danielle Oerlemans – hadn’t planned on selling, but the $70M was too nice to pass up … and the deal was done off-market.

The Weeknd’s previous home was a $21 million, 8,215 square-foot penthouse in Beverly Hills that he purchased less than two years ago. Now he’ll be living in a nine-bedroom estate with a spa, an outdoor pool, an indoor pool, a sports complex, and a music studio. And it looks like this:

The Weeknd’s whole vibe definitely reflects the outside of that house, which looks like Scarface’s house on a dangerous amount of steroids. But the inside is more subdued. I assume he’s going to hire Drake’s tacky interior designer and ask for his new $70 million estate to be completely converted floor to ceiling in gold-veined mirrors, black high-gloss paint, leopard print rugs, and strip club lighting. And he definitely could do that, because if the internet is painting an accurate picture, The Weeknd’s net worth is around $200 million. Somewhere Mohamed Hadid is texting his daughter Bella and begging her to dump her new boyfriend and get back together with her ex, if only long enough for The Weeknd to agree to let Mohamed crash in one of those nine bedrooms for a couple of weeks, or maybe a month…three months tops, don’t worry about it.
