We've showcased some pretty big, elaborate and expensive celeb homes here on toofab, but this one takes the cake for many reasons -- rap mogul Ronald "Slim" Williams reportedly purchased what is known as South Florida's largest home ... for $7.15 million cash.
The co-founder of Cash Money Records, which claims artists like Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne and Bow Wow, bought the 34,000-square-foot abode through a shell company, in a deal shrouded with such secrecy that real estate agents had to sign a 14-page confidentiality agreement and the previous owner had to wait in a separate room so Slim's identity would remain undisclosed.
Well, looks like someone talked.
The 9 bedroom, 12 bathroom monster is located in the triple-gated Windmill Ranch Estates in Weston, which is west of Ft. Lauderdale. Surrounded on three sides by a lake, the property has more features than you could ever want or need -- a 24-hour door person, 17-foot custom wood doors, a 15-seat movie theater, the requisite wine room and an indoor tennis court.
The baller space also boasts an 8-car garage, two swimming pools -- one indoor and one outdoor, grotto-style with its own beach -- a spa, and a 7,000-square-foot grand ballroom. You know, for those last minute balls you decide to throw.
Public records indicate that no mortgage or banks were involved in the purchase, meaning that, yes, the super-secret deal was done with all "cash money."
