The world's most expensive house when it was sold two years ago for 1/3 $billion owner has just been revealed.

Drum roll please, as the shocking news is it is a he 32 year old Saudi Arabian Crown Prince, MBS.



MBS is making a name for himself by cracking down on corruption among Saudi princes.

The French home is not his most pricely possession, as he bought this yacht at the same time.


Serene is one of the world's largest private superyachts. Built by Italian shipyard Fincantieri, Serene was delivered to its owner in August 2011. At delivery, she was one of the 10 largest yachts in the world with an overall length of 439 ft 4 in and a beam of 60 ft 8 in. The ship was built for Russian vodka tycoon Yuri Shefler for $330m. In the summer of 2014, Bill Gates leased the yacht for US$5 million per week.

Nah, he is just holding them hostage until they disgorge some of the ill gotten gains but I doubt anything changes in Saudi society.
