It turns out that even when you’re Jay Z and Beyoncé, you still don’t always get what you want. Earlier this week, Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft, outbid them on the Beverly Hills mansion they’d been eyeing 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.
This past September, Persson sold his video game company to Microsoft for $2.5 billion, then copped his new home this week for $70 million, which is actually $15 million lower than the original asking price. The megamansion 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.
