Beyoncé and Jay-Z Just Bought the Most Expensive House Ever Sold in California
As Beyoncé, 41, memorably said in “Formation”: “I dream it, I work hard, I grind 'til I own it.” Well, she definitely dreamt and worked hard, because now she and her husband, Jay-Z, 53, own the most expensive house ever sold in California.
As reported by TMZ, the pair just purchased a home in Malibu for $200 million, making it the biggest purchase in the history of the state, surpassing the previous record of $177 million.

As it turns out, the pair actually got a deal—the home was originally listed for a whopping $295 million, but it appears the couple were able to bring that price down by about a third.
The record-smashing mansion was designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, and it was previously owned by William Bell Jr., one of the most successful art collectors in the world.
According to the New York Post, Bell spent nearly 15 years having the all-concrete structure built. In the process, he accrued about $100 million in loans.
This is just the latest addition to the musical couple's impressive real estate portfolio. Back in 2017, they purchased a Bel Air mansion for $88 million. That same year, they also nabbed a $26 million mansion in the Hamptons. According to Architectural Digest, Jay-Z still owns a $7 million Tribeca penthouse as well, where he and Bey actually held their private, 40-person wedding back in 2008.
It's not just these two residing in all these homes though. The couple share an 11-year-old daughter, named Blue Ivy Carter, as well as 5-year-old twins named Rumi and Sir Carter.
One of the many things that Beyoncé's great at is breaking records.
