Though he was once arrested for drag racing, DUI (Driving under the influence) in 2014, and has also exhibited bad behaviour in public, Biebs has remained focused on his career and as long as he does, his net worth would only surge.
Most celebrities often invest in real estate either to enjoy the comfort that comes with house ownership or to boost their business portfolios, but the same can’t be said for Justin who still lives on rent.
Not like the musician hasn’t owned a house in the past. He used to have one located at the Calabasas estate. However, he auctioned it off in 2014 due to the authority’s push to restore peace between him and his neighbour, whom he hurled their home with eggs.
Following the incident and subsequent plea of no contest to vandalism charge, he was also made to enrol in anger management classes.
In 2015, he rented a home in Beverly Hills but made a mess of the place during a Post-Grammy party he had in the house. Those in attendance included Meek Mills, Nick Minaj, French Montana and Chris Brown.
Since he earned a notoriety for his tendency of messing up his rented house, not being a peaceful neighbour and for being strong-headed where it concerns paying for repairs; Justin had a hard time getting a home in Beverly Hills base. This is because homeowners in Beverly Hills neighbourhood teamed up to stop him from getting a place.
The struggle led to him living in a hotel for a while. Fortunately, he has now moved into a new home – a mansion in the Trousdale neighbourhood of LA’s much-loved neighbourhood – where he allegedly churns out $55,000 every month.
His recent home at Beverly Hills may have cost him a whopping amount but its really worth the wait and befits his status as a Hollywood star.
