Midweek Mash Up: Vince Vaughn (and Kayne West)

Last April (2013) actor Vince Vaughn and his Canadian real estate agent wife, Kyla Weber, dropped $3.925 on a white, clapboard-sided Beaver Cleaver-style center hall Colonial on a purdy tree-lined street in the affluent, suburban Los Angeles community of La Cañada-Flintridge, about 15 miles due north of downtown Los Angeles and not quite 20 miles north and east from Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

We don’t know if the rapidly procreating couple have come down with a hardcore care of The Celebrity Real Estate Fickle or if they’ve simply decided to add to their property portfolio with a large house nearer to the beach because the latest real estate reports out of casually swanky beach side community of Manhattan Beach (via the property gossip gal at the L.A. Times) reveal the couple shelled out $6.447 million for a 7,308 square foot quasi-Craftsman mini-mansion about 1.5 miles from the Manhattan Beach Pier

The six bedroom and seven bathroom residence, located behind gates on a .44 acre plot at the tail end of a quiet cul-de-sac east of Pacific Coast Highway, was sold as per reports and property records by former USC football coach Lane Kiffin. Mister Kiffin, college sports enthusiasts probably already know, was fired from his coveted coaching gig USC last year now and now does what he does—whatever that is—for the Crimson Tide people at the University of Alabama.

Mister Vaughn still owns a 12,000 square foot triplex penthouse atop the so-called Palmolive Building in Chicago that he first tried to sell off-market for $24.7 million and then listed in 2012 for $18.4 million. The price fell to $16.8 million before he took it off the (open) market in early 2013.

In other, as yet unreported celebrity real estate scuttlebutt out of Manhattan Beach…

Has anyone besides Your Mama heard that Kanye West—the increasingly entrepreneurial (and on probation) music industry super nova who will probably go down in Showbiz history as reality television klieg light Kim Kardashian’s baby daddy—quietly shelled out $4.5 million for an ocean-view fixer-upper duplex just a short block from the beach? Well, he did.*

Not for lack of looking but Your Mama has yet to turn up a digital listing for the property but as best as we can tell the 1940s era structure has two two bedroom and one bathroom units atop a three car garage. We can’t fathom why, besides as an investment, Mister West would buy a dumpy if egregiously expensive duplex in Manhattan Beach but, no T no shade, children, Your Mama don’t understand much of what Kanye does so, you know,whatever.

*For the records, property records are somewhat circumstantial on this one but the digital documentation Your Mama peeped and perused clearly point back to the same Denver (CO) wealth management office as Mister West’s other homes in Los Angeles and New York City. And, besides, butter beans, we heard about this from wildly well-connected real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak and we all know that beotch hardly ever gets her celebrity real estate wires crossed.
