…from a well-placed source, let’s call her Tina Tattletale, that 16-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter David Foster his fourth wife, Dutch-born former model Yolanda Foster of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills notoriety are very quietly showing their bluff-top spread in Malibu, CA to a select group of people with an astronomical asking price of $27 million.*
Property records indicate Miz Foster, the ex-wife of Beverly Hills mega-mansion developer Mohamed Hadid, paid $4.5 million the 3.25 acre ocean-view property in June 2007, shortly after she and Mister Foster hooked up but long before they officially (and legally) hitched their wagons in a lavish wedding attended by a busload of high profile music industry bigwigs.
The couple custom built the 11,600+ square foot mansion that property records show was completed in 2009 and has six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Committed reality t.v. watchers may have seen Miz Foster on RHOBH picking lemons, arranging flowers, throwing ladies luncheons for the other “housewives,” and otherwise pitter-pattering around as the pampered but unexpectedly sensible stay-at-home mother/housewife that she is.
Tina Tattletale went on to snitch to Your Mama that the Mediterranean-style mansion is “pretty amazing” with a “super crazy long [gated] driveway” and plaza-sized motor court and back in January Miz Foster toured the Bravo cameras through the sun-splashed and salt air-licked residence that includes formal entertaining spaces—with a grand piano, natch, a paneled study, and a super-sized center-island kitchen with marble slab counter tops and a somewhat famous glass-doored and marble-lined walk-in chiller (see picture 23). An adjoining family room has a full-wall of built-in bookshelves and another wall of wood-framed glass doors that fold open and connect to exterior living areas that include deep loggias for outdoor living, a broad, amorphous lawn, a rectangular negative edge swimming pool, two fire pits, and terraced citrus and avocado orchards, all with panoramic views of the Pacific.
Mister and Mister Foster luxuriate in a massive master suite that includes a boutique-style closet and dressing room (seen here) with floor-to-ceiling shoe racks; stacks of t-shirts and sweaters; drawers full of belts, sunglasses and lingerie; bunches of cubbies filled with dozens of designer handbags; and a long wall of meticulously organized glass-fronted wardrobes including one that’s just for Miz Foster’s collection of leather coats.
Other noteworthy features according to our tattletale include a home theater, a recording studio, and an extensive fitness complex with gym, spa, massage room, sauna, and hot and cold plunge pools.
Some of the children may recall that just a coupe months ago Mister and fourth-Missus Foster put their 4,200 square foot penthouse in downtown Victoria, B.C. on the market with a $5,250,000 price tag.
*Full disclosure: Your Mama first heard the ask was $18 million, then we heard it was $29 million, and then we finally heard $27 million.
