Not quite the Billionaire, the popular singer (of Puerto-Rican descent) recently bought a $3.3 million dollar 4,064 sq. ft. mansion in the Hollywood Hills- Laurel Canyon to be exact.
The 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home was reportedly purchased by a blind trust on his behalf.
The swanky crib boasts custom made 11-foot double front doors, dark hardwood floors, floor-to ceiling retractable glass panels with amazing views! Maybe the “Grenade” singer will cook his girlfriend Jessica Caban a meal or two in the tricked-out kitchen which has a double-sided fridge, double oven, and large center island.
According to Real Estalker property records for the sleek and low-slung house show it was purchased for $3,254,000.
Giving the sellers who bought the property in May 2011 for $1,235,000, a whopping $2,019,000 profit (pre tax and other costs, but damn! Two MILLION????)
outa orda curious readers who are wondering how he can afford this type of crib, let me offer you this word PUBLISHING. See, Bruno , who was nominated for seven GRAMMYS last year, is one third of production team The Smeezingtons (which also comprises Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine). They have written songs for artists such as B.o.B (“Nothin’ on You”), Travie McCoy (“Billionaire”), Flo Rida feat. Ke$ha (“Right Round”) K’naan (“Wavin’Flag”) Justin Beiber (“Love Me”) and Cee Lo Green (“Fuck You”). In October 2010, he released his debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans which peaked at number two and featured mega hits “Just the Way You Are” and “Grenade”, both world-wide number one singles.
Now that’s what you call makin’ paypah!
