Just a day after news broke that her ex, Marc Anthony, dropped $2.5 million on a 6,000-square-foot Los Angeles-area mansion, Jennifer Lopez has one-upped her former husband, making news for plunking down four times that amount for a whopper of an estate in the Hamptons.
A source tells the New York Post that the 43-year-old songstress; her much-younger beau, 24-year-old choreographer Casper Smart; and her 5-year-old twins, Max and Emme, visited the mega-property several times recently, and Lopez has finally decided to take the plunge and buy the property, which is located in Bridgehampton, New York, near Mecox Bay. The Post reports the place previously rented during a three-month summer period for a breathtaking $425,000. It was listed for sale at $9.95 million.
According to the listing, provided to omg! by real estate website Zillow, the custom home (built nine years ago) provides something that’s probably pretty important to J.Lo: privacy, touting that it’s "guaranteed" thanks to a "private cul de sac." The eight-bedroom, seven-and-a-half bath manse – spread over 8,500 square feet on three acres – also features a theater, sauna, steam room pool, pool house, and two adjacent lots just perfect for building a guest house and tennis court. The listing also includes two words the rest of us probably don’t associate with a $10 million home: "Incredible value."
Jenny’s clearly a long way from the block …
