Mariah Carey To Purchase Suzanne Saperstein’s Fleur de Lys

Does anyone remember Suzanne Saperstein? In 2002 Vanity Fair named her as the world’s biggest consumer of haute couture and 18th century furniture. She had Fleur de Lys built near Beverly Hills as a near replica of the Ch√Ęteau de Versailles, even going so far as to have an exact replica of Marie Antoinette’s bed created for herself. She also purchased Karl Lagerfeld’s entire collection of Louis XV furniture to help fill the massive house.

Since her divorce from media billionaire David Saperstein in 2006 (which was purported to be the most expensive divorce in history), she has had Fleur de Lys on the market, listed at $125 million (also, purported to be the most expensive estate in history). She may have finally found a buyer in Mariah Carey, as it was reported that Carey and husband Nick Cannon have made an offer of an undisclosed amount for the mansion.

Fleur de Lys features leather covered walls, gilded crown moldings, frescoes on the bathroom ceilings, two kitchens, a dining room to seat over 100 guests, and a 50 person screening room. This, all built by a woman once quoted to say “We are just simple country folk trying to keep bread on the table.”

Turns out Mariah really warmed to the place because “there’s so little that needs doing to it,” a source close to her reported. I can’t imagine that there is much more that one could do anyways. Well Mariah and Nick, have fun living it up!

    Yes Mariah, live it up while the rest of the world crumbles, children die and starve to death. Have a guiltless sleep.

    I SOOOOOO TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!!! I wish more people would see the “WASTEFULLNESS”, proabably not even a word!, but this just strikes me as disgusting! I’d say she could get a house with her immature husband Nick Cannon for $25 million & donate $100 million to charities!! My husband is in the USAF & I don’t work right now as I just had major back surgery in Sept & have another surgery coming up, WOW what a difference it would make just to have $100,000 to help us out as he is in the RESERVES fighting for our country, while “THE RICH” in AMERICA could care less about us working class people. I think Berney Madoff shouldn’t have gotten 150yr jail sentence, I think he should live on the streets like alot of his victims are & Mariah & Nick could join him as this just shows how GREEDY they are as well!

    I couldn’t disagree more. Those that have acquired wealth – be it via working or via inheritance – should not feel “guilty” that others don’t have the same standard of living or wealth. It’s not Mariah Carey’s obligation to support others. And, of course, it’s not your obligation or duty to support her or others less fortunate than you. You can if you wish, but it’s not your obligation nor should you feel guilty if you choose not to do so. While there is certainly some “luck” in the world, most of us make our own luck. If someone has acquired wealth via work, chances are great that they did quite a few things to put themselves in that position — often there was much work, risk, and pain associated with the gain. Focus on your own self and your own future and stop being other-focused; you’ll do much better in life.
