The 22-year-old singer-songwriter apparently fell in love with the island while on holidays with new girlfriend, Sofia Ritchie, who is singer Lionel Ritchie’s 17-year-old daughter. The six-bedroom, five-bathroom villa will offer him total privacy, and it has an area of 2000 square metres and offers direct access to the sea.
Lanzarote is a Spanish island, although it’s located approximately 125km off the coast of Africa. In his quest to avoid paparazzi and presumably his legions of devoted fans, Bieber engaged the services of real estate consulting firm, Proto Group Ltd, and specifically asked them for a property that was situated in a quiet area and offers absolute privacy.
Mind you, as the island is only 60km from north to south and 25km from east to west, it probably won’t take too long for the most dedicated Beliebers to smoke the heartthrob out!
The company revealed that Bieber was so keen on securing the Lanzarote property, he paid €5 million although the initial asking price was €4.2 million. It wasn’t too much of a financial strain though, as the singer was revealed to have a net worth of $200 million in January 2016.
