Record producer, sometime-actor and Sean Jean clothing line founder Diddy, aka Sean Combs, has just plunked down $39 million on a brand new, 17,000-square-foot mansion in Holmby Hills, reports the LA Times (well, they say it was $40 million, but Blockshopper says otherwise). The two-story "European-style" estate was developed and sold by spec megamansion king Nile Niami, who's known for his outrageous designs (operating room??). Construction finished earlier this year and the house didn't have time to hit the open market before Diddy snapped it up in an off-market deal.
The property include a pool and grotto connected by an underwater tunnel, a 35-seat theater, a wine room, and a "steam room, massage room and beauty salon" in a separate structure on-site, according to TMZ. With his new address, Diddy will now be a neighbor to the Playboy Mansion and the equally infamous The Manor, which has a climate-controlled attic that's the same size as Diddy's new place.
