Jay-Z and Beyonce Rent a Mansion in the Hamptons for $400,000
Singing sensations Jay-Z and Beyonce are spending the entire month of August in a 31,000 square foot home in the Hamptons known as “Sandcastle”.
The rental cost of the home is $400,000 for the month. Still, the couple is merely living large and celebrating while the money keeps flowing in.
It’s not known for how long the financial good times will last being that fame is a fleeting thing.
Larger stars have seen fortunes evaporate as incomes decline but grandiose life styles continue unabated.
One needs look no further than the fortunes consumed by the likes of Elton John and Michael Jackson.
All parsimony aside, the couple does appear to be fabulously in love and should enjoy memories in this wonderland home.
If they decide to buy it, it’s only $43.5M or $3.5M more than Jay-Z’s father’s day gift of a jet airplane.
