Rumor Has It: Justin Beiber

Rumor has it 18 year old bubblegum pop phenom and international superstar Justin Beiber snatched up a very contemporary mansion above Los Angeles' scenic Lake Hollywood last listed—and as of today, we note, still listed on the open market—with an assertive $10,800,000 price tag.

The three-story glass, steel, and stone structure in question measures, according to current listing information, a man-sized 9,385 square feet and contains a total of 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. Listing information describes the house as "cutting edge" and "architecturally significant" with two two living rooms (one with massive stacked stone and steel fireplace), capacious center island kitchen, a "floating" dining room (whatever the devil that is), movie theater, bar area, and—natch—private fitness and massage rooms.

The airy interiors have soaring double-height ceilings and walls of retractable glass that connect to a series of cantilevered balconies and outdoor entertaining areas that include various enclosed gardens and outdoor rooms, an infinity-edged swimming pool, elevated spa with panoramic view, deep terraces for lounging, dining and sunbathing a ridiculous number of built-in fire pits.

No doubt The Beib and his tortured hair can afford it; Forbes estimated he earned around $53 million in 2010. For the record, Your Mama is nine kinds of skeptical. None-the-less so the story goes in the U.K.'s Daily Mail, the modern mansion young Beiber (allegedly) bought was most recently rented by Ashton Kutcher for a reported fifty grand a month after his estranged wife Demi Moore booted the caught philandering Twitter fiend from their modern family mansion in Beverly Hills (CA).

The folks at the Daily Mail suggest that Mister Beiber purchased the property as a birthday present to himself and that once Mister Kutcher packs his bachelor things and moves out The Beibs hopes "to set up a home" with his slightly older Disney teen-queen gal pal Selena Gomez.

Didn't he turn 18 yesterday or the day before? Pretty funny how quickly he picked himself up a bachelor pad.

The picture Mama shows doesn't do it justice. Check it out on the MLS.

He would be well served to save his 2010 fortune as his earning prospects will surely dim..

@2:31. Yes, a quick search of the net will bring up stories and pics of a young Micky Rooney buying high-end cars and houses back in the day; now look at him now. And, remember, Micky actually had/has talent. I'm not sure how long you can pedal BS, but the shelf life of what passes for Hollywood elite today is painfully short. Advice: Live more frugally and invest wisely.

The house? This is that thing with the glass boil that Mama mentioned a while bag when Kutcher was looking at it. From many angles it looks like shipping crates assembled by squatters.

This idiot is going to be broke in 10 years and I can't help but smile. He has the financial acumen of an NFL player.

Justin is a mere babe. Looks like a great place to park his new Fisker Karma. We should all do so well.

consider his net worth is, and I cringe as I say this, estimated at $105 million, this house is in his price range. Spending less than 10% of your net worth is less than most of us peasants pay for our homes. If even half of his money is invested wisely the little shit can live like a pasha the rest of his life.

To summarize, life is most assuredly not fair.

I hope he is bald by 30.

$11 million? The houses at 3002 and 3003 are valued at $600K and $700K. It looks like a suburban cul-de-sac. My mama taught me that you buy the least expensive house in the most expensive neighborhood, not vice versa. I'll excuse a rental. A purchase is preposterous.

Yeah, Biebs will be broke. Whatever astronomical figure they have him making - take like 60-65 percent off the top for taxes, managers, publicists, etc. - and I am being conservative.

Then figure record company reimbursements (The limos, private jets, 5 star hotels he travels by - record company pays NOW and he reimburses them later.

Then consider the teen idol shelf life and the expenses (upkeep, taxes, renovations, repairs, etc.) over say a decade or so of a 10 million dollar house and you have a recipe for disaster.
