Though her fast-paced career was effectively derailed in 2019 by the so-called Dramageddon 2.0 scandal and a subsequent bitter lawsuit from her former business partner, Tati Westbrook is steadily rebuilding her life and proving she’s here to stay. Now reunited with longtime husband James, from whom she “almost got divorced” during their business troubles, the veteran YouTuber and top beauty influencer has returned to creating makeup-centric videos, which continue to rack up hundreds of thousands of views.
But there’s nothing like a fresh real estate start to really inspire new beginnings. Pre-pandemic, the Westbrooks had split their time between a multimillion-dollar Los Angeles compound and a high-rise luxury apartment in Tati’s native Seattle. Both those places are long gone: the L.A. estate was sold for $3.8 million in late 2020; the Seattle condo lease ended, and Westbrook majorly downsized to a $520,000 bungalow elsewhere in the city.
Partly for more space and to get more bang for their real estate bucks, the Westbrooks have now decided to relocate to Texas, where they’ve settled near the fast-growing city of Fort Worth, securing the keys to an impressive suburban estate with plenty of space for a filming/beauty studio, guest quarters and much more.
The Lone Star State is a bit stingy about revealing the sale prices of its homes, so it remains unclear exactly how much Westbrook paid for her new digs. However, the property had been publicly offered at $2 million and was on the market less than a week before finding a buyer, so it’s probably a good guess that the 40-year-old beauty guru paid very close to the asking price — or maybe even a bit above it, depending on competition.
Custom built in 2013 and sold to the Westbrooks by former NFL star Dominic Raiola, the 6,200-square-foot mansion is described in the listing as an “immaculate custom French Colonial” and sits within a securely gated community. For her part, Westbrook has already filmed a preliminary tour of the premises and shared that she’s renovating the whole place, so some of the finishes seen in these photos may soon be in the dumpster.
