Ryan Seacrest the American Idol host very recently revealed that he and his girlfriend Julianne Hough, who has been dating Ryan since 2010 are living together. He was a guest on the Howard Stern Show. The 37 year popular TV personality must be really serious about his girlfriend as he has bought her a new pad for a cool $49 million. It is no simple home but a Beverly Hills estate, formerly owned by another popular TV personality Ellen DeGeneres. TMZ reported the details about the property. It is a 2.87 acres palatial grounds with the main house built on 9,200 square foot. The estate boasts of three guest homes and several sprawling wildlife ponds.
Ryan’s net worth is estimated at around $125 million and he is believed to earn about $45 million a year. He had been trying to sell his Hollywood Hills West estate since 2010 for $15 million. According to Los Angeles Times he managed to sell it finally last month for $12 million. His girl friend who featured in the show Dancing With The Stars would love the space the estate provides and can revisit her dancing routine. Ellen DeGeneres who has married Portia de Rossi have moved to a luxurious Malibu beachfront pad which earlier belonged to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
The sprawling Beverly Hills Estate originally belonged to Will And Grace co-creator and Emmy Award-winner Max Mutchnick. Ellen had bought the estate from him for $29 million. She later bought the adjoining properties also and turned them into guest areas. She had originally listed the estate for $60 million but could not find a buyer at that price. However, she got a good price for the Malibu pad which was listed by Brangelina for a casual $13.5 million but finally sold to Ellen for just $12 million. The celebrities from movies and TV seem to be exchanging homes for a change of scene and a different experience.
