Marv Albert can probably check Dr. Dre off his list of potential penthouse buyers after it was announced that the hip hop star purchased Tom Brady and Gisele’s Los Angeles mansion on Monday. According to Access Hollywood, Dre picked up the pad for a cool $40 million, $10 million below the reported asking price.
The 18,700-square-foot mansion is located in LA’s Brentwood neighborhood, and features just about every amenity you could imagine – including a moat. Yes, a moat, because that’s what Princess Gisele wanted. Now Dre’s wife, Nicole, will feel like royalty when she comes home everyday.
Hopefully Dre was looking for something simple and cozy, because that’s exactly how Gisele described the enormous house in an interview with Architectural Digest last year.
“I like simplicity and coziness,” stated Gisesle. “I want to live in a place that feels like a real home, where you can put your feet up on the couch and just relax.”
When 18,000 square feet started being considered “cozy,” I couldn’t tell you.
