The 22,300-square-foot house the Swedish billionaire now calls home makes Minecraft look like a baby's toy. The mansion, which has eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms each equipped with Toto Neorest toilets, is accommodated by an infinity pool adorned with iPad-controlled fountains and magnificent Malibu Beach views. Inside, you'll find an awesome candy room, car showroom, screening room, vodka and tequila bars. To top it off, the sale of the house included a replica of James Dean's motorcycle, as well as an 18-foot onyx dining room table with Roberto Cavalli place settings.
