It's official ... Ryan Seacrest is the owner of Ellen DeGeneres' epic, Beverly Hills estate. 

We've learned title was officially transferred to Ryan on Wednesday.  

We have now learned exactly what Ryan paid for the property. Ellen listed it at $49 million, and although one of our sources told us Ryan paid close to the asking price, we have now confirmed Ryan paid just under $39 mil. 

We broke the story Ryan snagged the estate, which covers a city block and is just shy of 3 acres.  In addition to the 9,200 square foot main house, there are 3 other houses on the property.  The gym is the size of a large health club.

As for Ellen, she bought the main house from "Will and Grace" producer Max Mutchnick for $29 mil and then purchased the surrounding properties.  Bottom line ... we're told Ellen lost money on the deal, but given the real estate slump, she still did ok.

Forbes says Ryan raked in $59 mil last year, so he can afford it.

Wonder if Julianne is going to move in with him. He did do his fake proposal - acted like he was going to ask her to marry him a couple of weeks ago on Idol when she was in the audience. Guess we will see.

These comments are ridiculous and show a lot of jealousy. This guy works hard in a profession that pays well. Why do we pay someone who can hit a ball millions of dollars but pay a social worker who save children's live $35k a year? It's just the way it works. Good for him and the house is sweet.

Genial     

He could have 'squatted' in the property and might have gotten it free under the law of adverse possession,,,

I'm curious if any of these Hollywood Standouts possess any common sense. How do you enjoy anything you work for, if you are always working?

I'll answer that. They obviously don't enjoy much, besides knowing that they have things. The media always fails to make that a point , when you read their obituary.

And most of his $ is from him producing the KARTRASHIANS tv show. Thanks Ryan. I
used to really like you. Now when I see you
I see these no talent bloodsuckers, and I
throw up in my mouth. Thanks Seacrest.
For cramming these losers down our
throats...skanky Kim, butch Kris, and
the ever so feminine Bruce...not to
mention Big-Foot Khloe, and the baby
maker Kourtney, and her alcoholic
baby-daddy Scott no-dick. Again, thanks
Seacrest. Wish it were 'Seacrest-OUT".

He works hard for the money, but it's an awfully big place to be lonely in!
