Ryan Seacrest

Buys Ellen DeGeneres'

$49 Mil Estate

EXCLUSIVE

New estate belonging to Ryan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest has snagged Ellen DeGeneres' amazing Beverly Hills estate, which was listed for a cool $49 million, and he paid close to the asking price ... TMZ has learned.

Seacrest, who is reportedly worth $125 million and rakes in $45 million a year (these reports are sometimes off -- he probably makes more) ... will be the proud owner of the 9,200 square foot main house, 3 guest houses, and a couple of cement ponds. The estate sits on 2.87 acres -- for Bev Hills, that's huge. It basically covers an entire block.

Our sources say Ryan is paying within a couple of million dollars of the asking price. The deal is in escrow and it will close this week.

One realtor -- Kurt Rappaport -- repped both Ryan and Ellen in the deal ... nice commission.

The house was formerly owned by Max Mutchnick, co-creator of "Will and Grace." Ellen paid $29 mil, but then purchased the adjacent properties.

It pays to have 20 jobs.

Ryan Seacrest thanks all of you Kardashian haters for his new home. Everytime you click on a blog to degrade and insult them, they get more popular and richer and he in turn gets richer. Good going guys. Bet you thought your were hurting someone when you were typing your garbage. SMDH!!

And these are the vain people who tell us what to believe and how to vote Democrat. It's not the Republicans that are filthy rich, but the dysfunctional, self centered Hollywood liberals!!!!!

Q    

He's now a top One Percenter---do the Occupy People know this now? 45 million for a place to live? Dude, how much are you actually giving to people who need it? The Occupy People seem interested in that kind of stuff from the One Percenters. Nice to see too, that the Gay and Lesbian community share their cribs and such among one another...He's bi, its well known...gotta love the guy, except for the One Percent part. I heard his idol, Dick Clark was actually mean to the little people later in life---hope he doesnt get that way. One Percenter.

These folks are way over the top, even Warren Buffett. I'd like to think that if I had enough money to blow on a compound for a house, that I'd use it instead towards something that will pay dividends, like people's lives.

To fill that gargantuan house, they are going to need a ton of furniture, and a moving companies to do it with. Emphasize the plural - http://bit.ly/IYKEoo
