Rick Ross buys Evander Holyfield’s 109 room mansion (Photo)


It appears hip hop superstar Rick Ross has bought former heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield’s house. It isn’t your average house, it is the biggest single-family home in Georgia with 109 rooms.

From Curbed:

The dining room seats 100 guests. The backyard pool is more than 350,000 gallons, which makes it one of the largest private pools in America. It has 109 rooms. The “second home” on the property weighs in at a hefty 4,000 square feet itself. It all sounds fine and dandy, but caveat emptor, you guys — Holyfield once told the AJC it cost him about $1 million buckaroos a year to operate the thing, and that electricity bills were in the $17K range.

From Complex:

Rick Ross purchased the mansion a year after heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield lost it to foreclosure—he owed the bank a whopping $14 million. This summer the Atlanta residence, which is actually located in Fayetteville County, Ga., went back on the market for $8.2 million, but it hasn’t been revealed how much Rick Ross dropped on the mansion. At auction, the starting bid was $2.5 million—what a steal.
