The Moroccan-American rapper bought it from Selena Gomez in 2016. Now it could be yours

While there are, we imagine, relatively few downsides to being a multimillionaire, listing your mega mansion for sale must be one of them. It’s enough of a saga for the average guy. Imagine having millions of strangers around the world scrutinising pictures of the space you and your family call home.

However, for curious fans – ourselves very much included here – it offers a rare glimpse into the everyday lives of the rich and famous, like former GQ Middle East cover star Karim Kharbouch, better known by his stage name French Montana.

Having bought the property from Selena Gomez back in 2016 for $3.3 million, the Moroccan-American rapper is looking to double his money (well, French does love the hustle) on the 7,786-square-foot Calabasas mansion, which boasts five bedrooms and six bathrooms.

With ample natural light, floor-to-ceiling windows, and an open-plan design throughout, Montana’s Mediterranean-style mansion was designed with entertaining in mind, according to property site Celebrity Homes, which cites the well-equipped chef’s kitchen and large pantry as key selling points, along with a built-in bar, wine cellar, and dedicated cinema.

When the weather’s good – which, let’s face it, is most of the time in California – Montana can host guests in his backyard, where patios and lush lawns surround a swimming pool and spa. Beneath a vast stone cabana you’ll find a full outdoor kitchen, complete with brick pizza oven.

However, the main event can be found in the property’s former guesthouse, which Montana spent $400,000 transforming into a high-spec recording studio shortly after he moved in.

Regardless of who buys it, they’ll be in good company – at least five of the Jenner-Kardashian clan live in the Calabasas area, along with Drake, The Weeknd, and Will Smith. That’s going to be some moving-in party.
