Drake's Hidden Hills Mansion Isn't For Sale, After All

By on February 3, 2017 in ArticlesMusic News

Back in 2012, Drake purchased a property in Hidden Hills, California for the relatively cheap price of $7.7 million (it was originally listed for $27 million). The multimillion dollar 'Yolo Estate' features six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a pool with an 80-foot water slide, a 28-person theater, a championship tennis court, an equestrian ring, and a half-dozen horse stables. Drake has previously professed his love for his property in interviews with different publications, so it was a big surprise to many when it was reported earlier this week that the 30-year-old rapper was putting the mansion on the market. Well, now it has come out that Drake didn't really list his property for sale, at all.

TMZ is reporting that Drake is the victim of scam by an imposter who posed at Drake's manager, putting the "Fake Love" emcee's house property "for sale by owner" for $19,999,900 on Zillow. When a real estate agent named Alexei Pavlov, saw the posting, he reached out to Drizzy's "manager" to see if he could represent Drake in order to sell the property. After Pavlov spoke with the "manager," who said that he could represent Drake, he posted the property on the Multiple Listing Service as an active listing.

While Pavlov never meant to put the listing on active status (according to him, it was meant to be put in draft status), he tried to speak with the the person posing as Drake's manager in order to iron out the details of the deal. When Pavlov attempted to speak to the imposter again, he ended up confessing that the whole thing was one big scam.

So it turns out that Drake's 'Yolo Estate' isn't for sale after all. Cue the beautiful women sliding down the 80 foot water slide.
