According to TMZ, this 30,000-square-foot Malibu property was once owned by art collector William Bell and took about fifteen years to build. Beyoncé and Jay-Z seem to have gotten quite a bit out of this all-concrete home as it’s already been listed for $295 million.

Fan reaction

Social media users had mixed reactions to the whooping $200 million purchase with Beyoncé and Jay-Z being described as “capitalists” for their excessive purchase. One user tweeted, “Who buys a house that costs so much that is useless, you can buy so much land to save the land but you’d rather spend it on a house of a king…” Another wrote, “No person in an ordinary state of society should own so much of wealth.”

Some fans were quick to defend Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s massive buy. One user commented, “Some of you guys are mad because they spend their money the way they want to??? Stop worrying about celebrity money and go get your own job. You guys are obviously insanely unemployed,” while another wrote, “Beyoncé now literally has a home in the shape of her number.” Favorite and most expensive home ever sold. Iconic.”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z share three children together after they tied the knot in 2008.
