Tom Cruise knows your pain if you have ever struggled to sell a property. His Beverley Hills mansion has finally sold - to private equity billionaire Leon Black - after he was forced to cut the asking price.
TMZ reported that the sale netted him $40 million - well short of his original asking price of $45 million - although still a decent profit, because according to Variety he paid $30.5 million for it in 2007.
For his $40 million, Black gets an incredible home with seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a tennis court, swimming pool, and guest houses - just in case the mansion doesn't have enough space for everyone.
Black already has a huge property portfolio, but it could prove a useful place to hang more of his enormous art collection.
The latest sale is part of something of a selling spree for Cruise. He used to own two properties in LA, but in the space of a year he has parted with both. The other was in the Hollywood Hills, and sold for a reported $11.4 million back at the end of last year.
At the end of November 2014, he also put his stunning Colorado estate on the market - for $59 million. This is more than just a four-bedroom cedar lodge with its own gym and library, it also includes huge grounds, a guest house and sports and leisure facilities. The lodge is still reportedly on the market.
Finally, the Daily Mail reported earlier this year that he had put his East Grinstead (Sussex) property on the market too - for £5 million.
With three houses sold in three years - and two more on the market - it begs the question of where he is planning to live.
The endless property sales have led to a number of rumours. The internet is home to hundreds of them, claiming that Cruise is all set for a move to various small US towns - but there's no truth in any of them. These are established by fake news sites that people can submit fictional news stories to - and then benefit financially when their stories are shared on social media.
One story that sounds more interesting is a news report that he is planning a move to Saint Hill Manor in Sussex, the former home of L Ron Hubbard and the headquarters of the Church of Scientology. The Mail claimed he was renovating it - at a cost of $16 million and planning a move to be closer to his London-based daughter Isabella.
Cruise has not commented on the story. But what do you think? Has he ditched various homes around the US and UK for a chance to live in this enormous Scientology castle?
