Jay Z, 53, and Beyonce, 41, also have a mansion in the swanky Bel Air neighborhood, and this time they took the record from the venture capitalist Marc Andreessen who bought a home next door for $177 million in 2021. 

The most expensive real estate deal, however, was made by hedge fund giant Ken Griffin in 2019 when he bought an apartment in Central Park in New York City for $238 million.

According to Daily Mail, Beyonce plans on finishing her Renaissance World Tour and returning to her new luxury home located on the 8-acre bluff adjacent to the Pacific Ocean in the Paradise Cove area also known as the Billionaire's Row.
