Michael Jordan

I'm Building a $12.4 Million

Cigar-Smoking PARADISE

Consider the world record for "largest humidor ever" broken -- Michael Jordan's $12.4 MILLION Jupiter, FL palace is juuust about ready to move in to ... and it features an insane cigar-friendly home theater.

His Airness -- rarely seen these days without a tightly-rolled Cuban between his teeth -- has been building the 28,000 square foot estate for the past three years, complete with a giant state-of-the-art home theater ... outfitted with special equipment made to handle mass amounts of cigar smoke.

The 3-acre, 11-bedroom compound is being built in the middle of an ultra-exclusive golf course community called the Jack Nicklaus' Bear Club ... where Tiger Woods also lives.

It's unclear where Jordan plans to display his 5 MVP trophies and 6 NBA Championship rings ... but between the main house, the pool house, the guest house, and the 2-story guard house ... he's got plenty of choices.

FYI -- There's also a ridiculous athletic facility ... complete with b-ball court, naturally.

Hope someone told him that cigars are just as able to cause lung cancer as cigarettes.

I hope this venture is a success for Mikey. His Chicago restaurant closed. Just like Shaque did in Boston.

Cuban cigars? No doubt, they're supposedly the best. But they're illegal in the US and if a regular person has one, they are charged with a crime. Another example of the double standard the US has toward its celebrities.

What goes up, must come down. When million $ athletes & actors buy these ridiculously expensive spreads at the height of their career or financial situation they never take into account that this place is going to cost $30 to $40 Thousand a Month just for up-keep, mortgage, property taxes $$$, homeowners insurance, etc, etc... Then....one day they wake up and cannot afford it anymore. Celebrities are dumping their houses left and right now. Note to self!!!! Look 5, 10, 15 yrs down the road before you buy a vanity home~
