David Cassidy Rent My Cherish-ed Florida Home ... Just $1,500/Night!

11/23/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

David Cassidy might be gone, but his old mansion in Florida is very much in business.

Cassidy's former waterfront home in Fort Lauderdale is currently for rent, with prices ranging from $1,200 to almost $2,000 a night depending on the season. Right now, it's going for around $1,500/night  ... winter comfort ain't cheap, ya know?

Folks wanting to crash in Cassidy's old digs have to shell out for a minimum of 3 nights, but it might be worth it considering everything there.

The 6-bed, 6-bath estate is adjacent to a private lake with a dock. It also comes with a pool and spa, an outdoor barbecue, a volleyball court and complimentary paddle boards and kayaks for the adventurous types. There's a bunch of Cassidy memorabilia on display, too. Awards, personal posters, and videos of his concerts ... like a mini Cassidy museum.

The former teen idol sold the house in 2015 for $2 million after purchasing it in 2001. Even though he died this week ... c'mon, you can get happy about this.

EXCLUSIVE

YouTube celeb Jake Paul ain't trying to get on the A-list ... he's more about the B-list, as in BILLIONAIRE.

We got Jake at LAX Monday where we congratulated him on plunking down $7 mil for a sick new Calabasas crib. Turns out Jake's early goal was to buy a pad in that area. So, he's checked that box.

What's next for the 20-year-old? He unloaded a list of goals for us, and pay attention to the biggest one -- 10 years from now Jake plans to be pretty high on the Forbes list.

Don't count him out.

Taylor Swift All Walled Up Paparazzi Proofing Historic Mansion

11/19/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift's literally putting up walls all around her, turning an historic landmark home into her own personal fortress that will be impenetrable to cameras -- if all goes according to her plan.

Taylor obtained permits to block visibility to her Beverly Hills mansion ... including putting up a 6.5 ft tall cinder block wall by her front porch and a 7 ft high retaining wall by her tennis court. She also upgraded and remodeled her front gate -- emphasis on "up."

Normally, this would be no big deal, but Taylor's crib -- purchased in 2015 --  was designated a historic landmark by the city of Beverly Hills. That means she gets a HUGE tax break, but it also means she has to jump through hoops to make the slightest alteration.

Phil Saveni, president of the Beverly Hills Historical Society, tells us Tay Tay's changes are all good though because the walls won't "impact the integrity" of the home.

Translation: It's full steam ahead at Chateau Swift!

Venus Williams is the latest celebrity burglary victim -- her Florida home was raided by scumbags who made off with $400,000 in property ... all while she was playing in the U.S. Open. 

The Palm Beach Gardens PD confirmed ... Venus' home was broken into sometime between Sept. 1 and 5. 

Unclear how the burglars got into the property -- and what items were taken. 

Williams was in New York playing in the U.S. Open at the time of the incident. She advanced all the way to the semi-finals only to return home and learn about the burglary.

Hugh Hefner Celebration of Life Set for Mansion ... Scalpers Jack Up Prices

11/12/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The final Playboy Mansion bash honoring Hugh Hefner is going down this weekend, and although it's supposed to be invitation-only -- there's a way you can get in ... but for a VERY hefty price.

The event's been labeled a celebration of life, and it's set for Sunday from 10am to 2pm. Remember, Sunday Funday was always a big tradition for Hef back in his partying days, so it's a fitting send off.

Leave it to ticket scalpers to key in on that ... because tickets have started popping up online. The highest price we found was $3500 a pop. No word on who got real deal invitations, but we're told it's supposed to be mostly close friends and family. Plus whoever throws down thousands on the black market.

As we reported, Pabst heir Daren Metropoulos bought the Mansion -- and is planning some major renovations and add-ons -- so this might be the last party there in its current configuration.

Hef was 91 when he died in September, but a Playboy party is forever.

Kim & Kanye Landscaping Goes Into Overdrive At Hidden Hills Estate

11/9/2017 6:28 PM PST

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been working on their Hidden Hills home for years, but it looks like they've kicked the hustle into high gear to get it move-in ready.

Aerial shots of the grounds show they're getting a lot greener ... with several trees, shrubs and bushes planted in the front yard recently along with the fresh cut grass. The back of the estate's another story, but the horde of trailers, trucks and porta-potties suggests the landscaping operation is in high gear.

As we reported ... Kim and Kanye sold their Bel-Air pad last week for $17.8 million and are moving into their Hidden Hills mansion. 

Judging from the work being done -- and Kanye being spotted talking to his landscaping crew -- it seems they want to move in sooner than later.

EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham is losing deals all over the place ... first with work, and now with her real estate.

Farrah's finally gotten rid of her Austin home, but for a third less than her original asking price.  

She listed the 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath in 2014 for $750k, only a year after purchasing it. No word on the exact selling price but it was in escrow for $520k.

The 3,300 square foot home has some history ... it was featured on the "Teen Mom" catch-up special "Being Farrah," but doesn't look like it helped move the sale. The stone slab work and the built-in BBQ in the backyard probably did though.

Farrah's been living in L.A. where she was delving back into porn and reality TV. Emphasis on was

TMZ broke the story ... Kanye and Kim sold their Bel-Air home late last week for $17.8 million. That's a good thing for them, but the bad part is that they now need to move into their Hidden Hills home that has been under construction for years and is still not completed.

We're told the fam plans to move in soon.

Johnny Depp Could Lose Homes to Repay $5 Mil Loan

11/6/2017 1:35 PM PST
Breaking News

Johnny Depp could see 5 homes vanish from his portfolio as his ex-business managers try to get him to pay back a massive loan.

The Management Group filed docs Monday to force a sale of Depp's properties -- all of which are in L.A. -- in order to cover the $5 million TMG says it gave the actor in December 2012.

In the docs, TMG says it agreed to bail out Johnny when he owed that huge chunk of change to City National Bank ... thereby saving him from an embarrassing financial collapse. TMG says the 5 houses were collateral for the loan, and since he's stopped paying ... they want the properties.

Depp's beef with TMG started in June when he sued the company claiming it mishandled his money, and took out loans in his name ... to the tune of $40 mil.

As for the foreclosure -- first reported by Deadline -- a judge still has to sign off before TMG can give Johnny the boot.

The Kardashians Gotta Be On A List To Trick Or Treat With Us!

EXCLUSIVE

Getting to trick or treat in the Kardashian's hood is kinda like getting into the hottest club in L.A. ... you're gonna need to be on a list or know someone on the inside.

Thousand flock to their exclusive gated The Oaks community where Kris, Kourtney, KhloeKatie Holmes and Tamar Braxton have homes, and once you see the video Kardashian pal Larsa Pippen shared from the inside, it's not hard to see why.

Residents go all out converting their garages and front yards into haunted mansions and spare no expense. This year someone even had a mock Ghostbusters car parked out front.

Oaks residents can invite any outsiders as long as they put their name on a list with security. We're told an extra 20 or so security guards and off-duty cops are hired to deal with the extra crowds and sometimes the line to get through the gates alone can take up to 2 hours for guests.

Halloween might be over, but there's still 364 days to make friends in The Oaks before next year.

Ray J and Princess Love are going all out to crush their neighbors for best trick or treatin' spot on the block because they're giving away 10 lbs. worth of full-size candy bars!

While kids on Ray's block will be weighed down with all sorts of chocolate bars, we also found out what a bunch of other celebs are doing to curry Halloween favor this year:

-- "The Chew" host and chef Michael Symon's dishing his personal fave, full-size Take 5s

-- Rapper Stitches has $500 of assorted candy and each trick-or-treater gets 30 pieces

-- Food Network star Alex Guarnaschelli whipped up homemade chocolate truffles

-- Diamond Dallas Page wanted to give out organic candy, but settled on mixed grab bags

We recommend bypassing comedian Gilbert Gottfried's NYC pad -- he told us he doesn't give out candy, he sells it! We think he's kidding, but just in case ... carry cash.
