ORIGINAL STORY: A luxury Australian rental company is on the scout for some high-rolling real estate in multiple capital cities for an “unnamed megastar with a huge accommodation budget”, who’ll be visiting Australia for “an extended period next year”.
According to Domain, the unidentified VIP guest is willing to splash up to $6,000 a night to crash at a handful of private and pimped-out pads down under.
High-end real estate leasing company Luxico has apparently refused to disclose the name of the international baller in question, but gums are flapping that it is almost certainly one Justin D. Bieber, who recently announced an Australian tour for March 2017 which — wouldn’t you know it — is scheduled to hit the exact same Aussie cities in the exact same timeframe that’s been outlined by the rental company.
“One of the world’s most popular entertainers is heading to Australia next March and wants a home away from home in Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne over the duration of their tour,” a statement from Luxico reads.
“The internationally renowned singer will be staying five nights in each city and is willing to pay up to $6000 a night for the right property.”
And to give you an idea of what that much dough amounts to in Aussie rental terms, this penthouse in central Sydney comes packing a price tag of just $7500 for the entire week:
“This is an amazing opportunity for the right home owners,” the ad concludes, listing a range of criteria including a location up to 30 minutes from the CBD, four or more bedrooms (one for a child), secure entry, undercover parking and complete privacy with no street view into the property, and swimming pool optional.
As Domain points out, each Aussie landlord could bank up to $30,000 to put up “one of the world’s top selling vocal artists”.
So there ya go. If you’re the proud owner of a metropolitan palace and want to brag to all your lesser mogul m8s over the next croquet sesh about letting The Biebs crash at your spare crib, hit up the dudes at Luxico.
Obviously this wipes out pretty much anyone from Gen Y, who have collectively abandoned all hope of ever owning a one-bedroom unit in the shticks let alone a CBD mansion, but if James Packer, Gina Rinehart or Rupert Murdoch are reading this: get in amongst it y’all.
