Playboy Mansion Deal Falls Apart Hef Wants His Privacy

8/5/2016 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0805-playboy-mansion-film-magic-01The Playboy Mansion can still be yours, because TMZ has learned the impending sale has fallen through ... because the buyer demanded access that would disrupt Hugh Hefner's life.

The buyer was 32-year-old Daren Metropoulos, the son of a billionaire businessman, who has become a master at re-branding tired products, including Ghirardelli Chocolate and Bumble Bee tuna. We're told the purchase price was around $110 million.

The sticking point ... according to the deal, Hefner had the right to live out his life in the mansion before Metropoulos could do his thing ... restoring it and adding onto the structure. We're told Metropoulos wanted a significant amount of access during Hef's remaining years ... and Playboy felt he was being unreasonable.

The parties haggled for weeks ... sending several dozen versions of the deal back and fourth, to no avail. The deal officially fell apart Thursday night.

The Mansion is going back on the market Monday.

8/4/2016 9:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0804_rachel_bilson_childhood_home_launchRachel Bilson grew up in a home that looks like hippie heaven -- and if you're looking for a crap ton of color in your life ... it just hit the market.

Rachel's mom, Janice Stango, is selling her 3 bedroom, 2 bath Spanish Colonial for $760k. Stango, who's a sex therapist, bought it in 1987 for only $153k.

The 1,556 sq foot home -- listed by Cathy Stevens with Real Value Properties -- is a rare find for L.A., or anywhere else for that matter. It's borderline mystical with purple, yellow and green walls, wooden chandeliers and a courtyard with a pool and hot tub.

There's also a guest casita in back that doubles as an artist studio ... 'cause that's what the place needs. More color.

The Biebs is taking a baller break on the Big Island in a $6.8 million cliffside home called the Water Falling estate. We're told Justin's planning to stay for 2 weeks at $10k a night! Do the math -- it's a lot o' money.

As for the amenities -- there's a high dive, 2 story water slide, 2 ATVs, basketball/tennis court, ponds, a private chef, and the sick rooftop helipad. Y'know, in case Justin's gotta run out to the grocery store.

We're told he hired his own pilot to help tote his pals around the island. Good livin'.

She bought it for $1.15 million and is now listing it for $1.395 mil. 

Eva and media mogul Jose Baston will be just fine -- she dropped $11.5 mil on one of Tom Cruise's old Hollywood Hills pads.

The DJ/producer just put his Seattle mansion on the market for $9.45 million -- just a tick higher than the $3.3 mil he paid in 2014.

There's a lotta house to go with that price tag -- 7,610 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.75 baths with all the bells and whistles: panoramic view of Puget Sound, private home theater, gold leaf ceilings and customized whiskey bar. 

Check out the pics ... it definitely looks like a sweet deal ... especially for Ryan's bottom line.

Prince Everything Must Go ... Estate Ready to Dump Properties

8/1/2016 8:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0606-prince-getty-8Prince's massive real estate holdings are about to hit the open market ... if his estate gets a judge's approval.

The special administrator of Prince's estate has filed a request to start unloading various real estate holdings. It won't be a fire sale though ... according to the docs, the estate says it will only accept offers that are at least 90% of fair market value.

It's unclear exactly which of his properties will be for sale -- the court has sealed that part of the request -- but Prince is known to have real estate in Minnesota, Beverly Hills, New York and possibly more. His Minnesota holdings alone have been estimated at nearly $30 mil.

The move is a sign Prince's heirs are looking to liquidate his assets rather than hold onto 'em for sentimental reasons.

The judge still needs to sign off on the deal.

'Improv' Comedy Club Owner House Built On Laughs for Sale

7/29/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The guy who helped give Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David their starts in stand-up is looking to unload his Hollywood Hills pad.

Mark Lonow -- a longtime partner at The Improv comedy club franchise -- is selling the 5 bedroom, 3 bath crib for $2 million. He's lived in the 3,700 square foot property for the last 16 years. 

Easy to see why Mark, who's also actor and producer, stayed so long -- gorgeous hardwood floors, high vaulted ceilings and a sweet pool and hot tub out back. Adam Mahler at A Team Realty is listing the house, which is deceivingly rustic outside, but you gotta check out the interior.  

Good stuff. Almost as good as when Mark got to punch Adam Sandler ...

7/27/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0726_LA-Reid-Bel-Air-home-launch_2L.A. Reid is putting Will Smith's 'Fresh Prince' Bel-Air mansion to shame after he snapped up a multi-million dollar crib fit for a king in the same neighborhood. 

The music executive -- and one-time host of "The X Factor" -- just bought a palace of a home with features you couldn't even find at a 5-star resort ... all for a pretty penny of about $18 million. 

The 11,246 square foot property -- built in 2015 -- runs three stories high and has 7 bedrooms with 10 bathrooms ... you know, for his guests' guests and their cousins. There's also no shortage of amenities: built-in gym, indoor home theater with a bar, 300-bottle wine cellar, infinity pool and spa and elevator. Oh, and retractable glass walls for maximum space ... no biggie.

Check out the spread for yourself ... it's about as modern as modern gets. 

As for the price ... it's probably nothing to a guy reportedly worth $300 million himself. Good buy.

Exclusive Details

0726_lydia_hearst_bachelorette_party_launchLydia Hearst's bachelorette party was a perfect fit for her last name -- no cheesy Vegas strip club, instead her turn up went down inside historic Hearst Castle.

Sources close to Lydia -- who's engaged to TV host Chris Hardwick -- say she took 18 friends to the San Simeon, CA landmark built by her great-grandfather ... newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst.

Her guests included Cara Santana, Michelle Trachtenberg, Clare Grant (Seth Green's wife) and actress Jillian Murray. The ladies were treated to a 2-hour VIP tour ... complete with a swim session in the famed indoor Roman pool (usually off limits). The floaties were pre-approved.

We're told private events at Hearst Castle typically cost up to $22,000 ... but with the family discount Lydia's tab came to $0.00.

Perks of royalty.
