Some people just have too much money.

LA Curbed

Our overlord Jeff Bezos has reportedly purchased the Warner Estate. In an exclusive report, the Wall Street Journal says the Amazon CEO acquired the 9.4-acre spread in Beverly Hills for $165 million.

That would make it the most expensive price ever recorded for a home in Los Angeles County, surpassing the $150 million record set three months ago with the sale of the Bel Air mansion named Chartwell, which is best known for playing the Clampett’s home in The Beverly Hillbillies.

The seller is David Geffen, who held onto it for two decades. Flush with money after hawking his record company MCA, Geffen scooped it up in 1990 for $47.5 million, reportedly for all cash.

Marylin Monroe lived in the guest house at one time. That must have been convenient for Mr. Warner.

Two weeks ago Jeff Bezos added $13 billion to his wealth in 15 minutes. $13 billion in 15 minutes. Think about that compared to the pain and struggle of millions of Americans who are living paycheck to paycheck. We have a rigged economy and that has got to change. .

Ok, let's say we took all of his wealth and divided it equally among everyone on the planet- because, well, you know, it's only fair...

What would you do with your $17.26?

You took the words right off my keyboard. Why should I care or be offended by what anyone does with their money? Sometimes we bitch just for the sake of bitching (oh and because jealousy too)

The only time I am offended about another person’s wealth is when they use it against me. Guys like Soros, Bloomberg, Steyer, all come to mind. They have a right to their legally gained wealth, but not when they use it as an economic weapon against their fellow citizens.

IMO Bezos plays some of that game through his media ownership.

Jeff always seems to wear ugly jackets with some bizarre patterns

wonder if he thinks he looks better with some weird clothing pattern bouncing off the sheen on his bald head???

When you've got $37,000,000,000 in the bank, you can afford to spent $500 a day (or whatever) on a personal trainer.
