After spending most of last year quarantining in a rented Hollywood Hills mansion with his now ex-squeeze Denise Bidot, Lil Wayne has apparently decided he likes L.A. enough to set down some real estate roots. TMZ reported that the 38-year-old rapper has paid $15.4 million for a lavish estate in Hidden Hills, the guard-gated San Fernando Valley enclave that’s home to numerous celebrities, among them Drake, Lori Loughlin, Dwyane Wade, Jessica Simpson, Jeffree Star, John Stamos, and multiple members of the Kardashian clan.
Weezy’s new crib happens to lie immediately around the corner from the longtime main residence of Kylie Jenner, and it’s also almost directly across the street from The Weeknd’s Hidden Hills home, which has been for sale since last summer and remains available with a reduced $22 million pricetag.
Built in 2019 by a local developer, the hilltop compound consists of a 10,000+ square foot main mansion and a separate, mini-me-style guesthouse on a pad that sits lower than the elevated main house. The entire property spans more than three landscaped acres, all of them dotted by olive trees and rolling lawns. White picket fences and horse trails encircle the lot, a nod to Hidden Hills’ equestrian origins — nearly half of the community’s homeowners still keep horses on their ranches.
The modern farmhouse-inspired main structure offers voluminous public rooms, including a huge living room lying just off the two-story foyer. Under the grand staircase is a glass-enclosed, temperature-controlled wine closet/display; from there, oak wood floors continue into the designer kitchen, which is outfitted with two large islands, marble countertops, and a full caboodle of deluxe stainless appliances, including a French range.
