Her Ex Just Bought Her A Mansion


[CDAN] I guess this actress is a B list by name recognition, but if we are going by acting talent it would be a Z. OK, maybe that is an exaggeration. How about an S. Anyway, she also does some other things that make her some money, and she is probably more well known for them than her acting. Our actress recently bought a huge mansion with a really large price tag. Living large right? Well, it turns out that our actress got most of the money for the purchase from an A list ex. He is guaranteeing the loan and also put up most of the down payment. The ex was thrilled that she bought a place so close to his. I think he is expecting way more than for her to repay him the money.


It’s Jennifer Lopez, whose new mansion was financed by Sean Combs P Diddy Puff Daddy! Source: CDAN

FYI, Jennifer Lopez’s new house is 14,000 square feet and cost $18 million. It is located in the Water Mill area of The Hamptons, not far from Diddy’s estate.

Why would Jennifer, who has plenty of money, want or need Diddy to finance her house? Is it some kind of legal/financial maneuver to separate this asset from those that she’ll be splitting with Marc Anthony in the divorce? And what will she now owe Diddy… besides money?

Congratulations to Andromeda, who had the first completely correct guess!

    JLo… ex being Ben Affleck?

  • Mardy Bum

    yeah – she just bought a huge place on Long Island.

  • Andromeda

    Jennifer Lopez and P.Diddy? He’s still P.Diddy right?

  • Spanx101

    Because i think J-lo is A list i’m gonna say Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen

    • fotobandi

      Denise turned down a house from Charlie. JLo looks like a good answer here.

    • CrossingTheLine

      I’m with you – Charlie and Denise. She very publicly turned down one house, I bet she quietly took another. Although it could be Brooke, but that isn’t even a blind.

      Either way, its a Sheen Ex.

      S-List? S=Sheen

  • 4sixx2

    Charlie and Brooke?

  • lissy

    How about Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz?

  • Butterstiks

    Petra Ecclestone, or something like that.
    The blonde chick who bought the Spelling mansion.

  • GingerNaps

    Yes, J Lo bought an $18 Water Mill estate (thanks, Google), not far (by Hamptons standards) from P Diddy’s East Hampton pad. Is she really that broke? Or is this what one does to keep assets separate when going through an expensive divorce?

  • sunstamp

    J Lo is definitely A list.

    • GingerNaps

      I think J Lo is A list in name recognition, but both her acting and singing pretty much suck. Her stint on Idol has really revived her career.

  • cocobeannns

    Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen?

  • ecksor

    JLo has just bought a mansion in Water Mill. Diddy’s White House is a few miles away.

  • Amanda

    Definitely denise and charlie

  • ImThinking

    JLo and Ben Affleck or Diddy

  • tienboi

    Jennifer Lopez and P Diddy for the win.

    Reason 1: JLo just bought an $18 million dollar house like GingerNaps said.

    Reason 2: Said house is located in Water Mill like GingerNaps said (again).

    Reason 3: Puff Daddy has the financial clout (as of this month, his net worth is approx. $500 million). Ben Affleck is nowhere near that.

    Reason 4: B-List Actress by name recognition. Hasn’t had a bona-fide hit since 2001 (Wedding Planner). Every movie she’s made since has been disappointing commercially. No way Denise Richards is B-List ANYTHING, especially her cup size.

    Reason 5: “OK, maybe that is an exaggeration. How about an S.” She played Selena, her break out role.

  • pookie

    I don’t think JLo would be referred to an only an actress, I think of her as a singer who sometimes acts. I also don’t think she would need any help with a down payment. I think “S” list is a clue so I’m guessing Ryan and Scarlet.

  • Very Unseemly

    Oh how I wish this was Andie MacDowell.
    To have someone else recognize her Z list acting abilities would be so validating.

  • apple martini

    I don’t think Lopez is B-list, nor do I think that, at this point, she’d be referred to mostly as an actress.

    I like the Richards guess, especially with the snark about Z-list acting abilities.

    • LooLoo

      Ha ha, her “acting” in Green Card was so bad I nearly walked out of the theater. I’ve never seen anything as bad before or since.

      • FamousPeopleDoStupidThings

        I didn’t see Green Card but I saw a half hour or so of Glitter with Mariah Carey. Omg. Epic Fail!

  • cocobeannns

    Sorry, but Jennifer Lopez is A list and she doesn’t need anyone to buy a house for her. If anything, it’d be the other way around.

    • dorothy

      Totally agree. Between her clothing, shoe and perfume lines plus American Idol and new album, she likely makes twice as much money as Ben who doesnt seem to have more than 1 or 2 projects a year.

    • ecksor

      She is in the middle of the divorce. I don’t remember where they filed, but in many states all property purchased before the final divorce decree is entered would be considered marital. It’s much easier to have a proxy. As usual, it’s not the facts that matter, it’s the spin.

    • Summer70

      I agree cocobeanns! No way is she Blist or Zlist anything. Also, JLO is just as well known for her music, if this were her wouldn’t it say entertainer?

    • iammeme

      Also… Marc Anthony had big IRS debt right? Isn’t that why she took AI to begin with? Between that and the divorce she might think having someone buy her a house is a great idea. Then again, no way J Lo is not A list!!

  • jacqueline

    How about Elisabetta Canalis? She is an actress in Italy, as well as model and presenter ( not sure how good, or bad she is)? Clooney is definitely A list and this could have been a ‘pay off’ of sorts to stop her selling any stories. In the US her name recognition is pretty big after dating Clooney for so long and just having done Dancing with the Stars.

    • FamousPeopleDoStupidThings

      I’m pretty sure George is known to do such things. But is Elisa-what’shername a B list star?

  • kimosa

    How about Leighton Meester? The Z and S might be a clue for her role on Gossip Girl, and she is getting some recognition for singing?

    First time poster, longtime fan of the site :D

  • MrsPatrickBateman

    Leighton Meester? She just got a huge new house in Los Angelos. I don’t know who the ex is but the ‘S’ could be for Gossip Girl since they always call each other ‘B’ and ‘S’.

  • Arcadia

    Jennifer Lopez. She just purchased a home in the Hamptons! P. Diddy is the ex.

  • Arcadia

    Also, P. Diddy (aka Sean Combs) has a home in the Hamptons.

  • malkatz

    Leighton Meester just got a new place.

  • dee123

    I don’t think it’s J.LO.

  • Faye

    The best guess so far is Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen

  • ClueMeIn

    I don’t think it’s Leighton…is she that bad of an actress? I think she’s better than Blake.. And who would her ex be?

  • Booby Jones

    Jennifer Lopez really A list? She was dropped by her record label and hasnt had a big hit or good review for a movie in years.

    • iknowww

      JLO has AI money … she doesn’t need a guarantor or help with a down payment lol!

      • iknowww

        sorry, that wasn’t meant to be a reply to you booby.. heh

      • wykkyd

        true. but, she is currently going through a divorce. Until it’s final, isn’t it possible that she might want to keep this asset from winding up in the community property pot? In all likelihood, it was really “her” money that the “friend” used as a down payment, she just wants/needs to obfuscate the fact.

    • nomnom

      you really have no idea how much money she has vs. how much she owes (or he owes – who knows what the deal is for Marc), and assets can be pretty much tied up in a messy divorce, especially if you weren’t smart on handling them at the outset. her divorce from chris judd was probably pretty expensive too. and marc anthony has had bebies and baby mamas to support. there was an item just a little while before the new AI judges were announced suggesting she took the job for financial reasons. Oh and she might be an a-list celebrity, but she’s a B list in terms of name recognition as an actress.

      • GingerNaps

        Apparently Marc Anthony is in a financial mess, owing back taxes, etc., so that could contribute to JLo needing to get money from an ex.

  • danneka

    i’m thinking blake lively since she’s a and a fame but not sure what ex would be doing this for her….like that guy from the notebook? eh… but hope not b/c she’s so …lol.

  • danneka

    and blake is def a z list actor in terms of talent…..lol.

  • Tru Tru2

    Diddy and JHo..

    Diddy did this as a gift, in 2011, Diddy was touted as the richest in Hip Hop and Jay Z was second.

    Diddy has been trying to get into JHo’s good graces for weeks now and he foolishly tweeted a few things too.

    If you beleive that JHo being single, and rich, she is gonna use her money, you can forget it…that house is not far from his AT ALL.

    he’s such a fool, this would not be the first mansion he has bought for a female.

    The blind did not say, she was broke, it said her EX put up everything for the house, (he is just glad to be in her presence) I think it was a smart slick move. She can leave, and not be tied to it.

    JMO-she can’t act her way out of a paper bag and she has not had a hit movie in a bunch of yrs.

  • khakipants

    Simon Cowell and Terri Seymour? I’d say he’s A-list something. He recently stated he gives money to exes so they can still enjoy the lifestyle they had with him.

    • Robbielou

      I think Simon is a great guess. I think he just bought his “ex” fiance Mezhgan a house.

      I do like the Charlie and Denise guess, too.

  • yinyang

    I doubt it’s JLo.. If the pic of the house is a clue then it looks more like a west coast mansion.. If you look closely in windows(top round ones) it looks like there are images of people.. Weird! I have no clue but does not seem like JLo !

  • yinyang

    It’s probably LILO!

  • gmaven

    It has to be Denise and Charlie. Lots of rumors about her moving in next to him.

  • laine01

    1 of Hef’s ex gal pals…but poor Hef is so delusional it could be all of his ex gals :)

  • gippercat

    Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen (altho I dispute that he’s A-list… he’s just an A-hole). There’s been talk for a while that he was shopping for a house for Denise near his so that he could see more of his daughters.

  • lezgurl79

    This is so Denise Richards. She is a terrible actress. And Charlie Sheen is totally A List.

  • Outlineboy

    Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen. Isn’t this common knowledge already?

  • Lynne_in_UK

    Okay, I think I just found it: I think that it is Naomi Campbell. The boyfriend is Vladislav Doronin. Heres the house too.


    By the way, I would live in that house.

  • sonnyvega

    Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen

  • cocobeannns

    Wow. I am shocked by this, and I don’t know why! You would think with all the money she has… BUT, smart move by having someone else by it as not to have to split the assets with Anthony.

    • La Llorona

      I was surprised when I read it too. But I guess not really when you think about it, financially, divorces get so messy.

  • Serena van der Woodsen

    I don’t consider JLo an actress first…a singer, yes, but actress?
