Ryan Seacrest has snagged Ellen DeGeneres’ Beverly Hills estate, which was listed for $49 million – and he paid close to the asking price, according to TMZ. Seacrest, who is reportedly worth $125 million and rakes in $45 million a year between American Idol and his other entertainment ventures, will be the proud owner of the 9,200 square foot main house, 3 guest houses, and a couple of cement ponds. The estate sits on 2.87 acres. Sources say Ryan is paying within a couple of million dollars of the asking price. The deal is in escrow and it will close this week. Ellen is making a nice profit on this place. She paid $29 million for it back in 2007.
