Psy of “Gangnam Style” fame allegedly just bought a $1.25 million condo in Los Angeles. The YouTube sensation is now the proud owner of a 2,700-square foot home in the famous Blair House, according to TMZ. Long before Psy became popular with thousands of high school and college students in the United States, the South Korean dancer appeared in a video which uttered lyrics about killing Americans.
The “Gangnam Style” performer allegedly paid for his lush digs on the 29th floor entirely in cash. The massive money transfer from South Korea likely did not put too much of a dent in Psy’s bank roll if reports of his $7.9 million net worth are accurate.
Psy supposedly wanted to keep his Blair House condo purchase on the hush hush, but, as with all celebrity real estate purchases, the alleged details ultimately leaked. The dancer was reportedly flanked by security at all times during the Los Angeles condo purchase. The two-bedroom home supposedly boasts luxurious décor, but the “Gangnam Style” entertainer allegedly plans on redecorating his new home anyway.
Considering that Psy is not a legal resident of the United States, it is unclear how much time he will actually be spending at his new Blair House home. President Barack Obama and Psy shook hands during a recent Christmas concert in Washington after the controversy about the performer rapped violent lyrics about America, ABC News notes.
During the 2004 video, Psy had this to say about United States soldiers fighting the war in Iraq:
“Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives, kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers. Kill them all slowly and painfully.”
The South Korean rapper apologized about the remarks he made before raking in a remarkable amount of money from the American youth who watched his “Gangnam Style” video on YouTube. His new views about American military members allegedly includes an understanding of the sacrifices they make to protect democracy and freedom.
