You don’t always get what you want no matter your status whatsoever in the society. Same can be said of the Power couple, Jay Z and Beyonce. Earlier this week, Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft, outbid them on the Beverly Hills mansion they’d been checking out and interested in for months. He purchased the property for $70 million, the most anyone has ever paid for a home in Beverly Hills. Though the mansion may have taken chunk out of Persson’s wallet, there’s definitely a lot more where that came from.
Few months ago, Persson sold his video game company to Microsoft for $2.5 billion, then bought his new home this week for $70 million, which is actually $15 million lower than the original asking price. The exquisite mega mansion came with cases of Dom Perignon, a car showroom, a movie theater, a candy room (which would have been paradise for Blue Ivy), a 16-car garage,Yves Saint Laurent fire extinguishers, among many other extravagant features.
Markus posted a picture on his twitter page to celebrate his purchase.
