Pharrell Williams’ lavish lifestyle includes a new 400 room luxury hotel a 9 bedroom mansion and more
Pharrell Williams began his revolution in hat style a long time ago. The singer-songwriter has always had a distinct sense of style, from his early 2000s camo trucker hat to his 2014 Vivienne Westwood “Happy Hat.” In the two decades that followed, he established himself as an international fashion icon through collaborations with established brands like Chanel and Adidas and the introduction of his own labels, Billionaire Boys Club and Humanrace.
To fill the position left vacant by Virgil Abloh’s untimely demise in late 2021, Louis Vuitton announced on February 14 that Pharrell Williams would be taking over as menswear creative director. In the month of June, he will show his first collection at the Paris Fashion Week.
Williams’ most popular song, “Happy,” was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 weeks straight and earned him a total of 13 Grammy Awards and 2 Academy Award nominations for his music. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the music producer has a net worth of $250 million, allowing him to live lavishly with mansions in Beverly Hills and other parts of California, a garage full of Ferraris, and an arsenal of high-end clothing and automobile brands.
Pharrell Williams’ lavish lifestyle includes multiple mansions in California, a Ferrari Enzo, and more.
It seems that house-flipping is a hobby that Pharrell Williams enjoys. Unlike most people, his assets include expensive homes in California. The Beverly Hills mansion he sold for $14 million in 2020 was a showplace. The Los Angeles Times reports that the three-story home has a 200-foot driveway, 17,000 square feet, 10 bedrooms, and 11 bathrooms. The white gallery walls and indoor fountains in the skylit atrium add to the building’s appeal. The American singer paid $15.6 million to acquire the home from the American actor Tyler Perry in 2020.
After listing his Glass Hollywood mansion for $9.2 million in 2022, he made a tidy sum. According to Architectural Digest, the home features five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a 70-foot-long infinity edge pool, an outdoor movie theatre, and a skate-park across its 6,100 square feet. Assuming Williams paid $7.14 million for the mansion in 2015, his $2.06 million profit is based on the current market value.
The singer and his family reportedly moved into a $30 million waterfront mansion in Coral Gables, Florida in the year 2020, as reported by the U.S. Sun. In addition to its expansive square footage (over 17,025), nine bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, and thirty-five feet of waterfront, this property also features a wine cellar, a library, a pub-style bar, a living room with a fireplace, and an elevator.
Williams entered the hotel industry in 2021. The Goodtime Hotel, an Art Deco-style property with 266 rooms, was opened by the duo in Miami’s South Beach in collaboration with David Grutman, a veteran of the restaurant and nightlife industries. Strawberry Moon, the property’s pool club, features two swimming pools, two open-air bars, a DJ booth, and private cabanas, as reported by Travel + Leisure. Costing $200 million, as reported by the Miami Herald. Somewhere Else, a new 400-room, bungalow-and-lobby luxury hotel being built on the Bahamas’ Paradise Islands, is another Williams and Grutman collaboration. According to The Architectural Digest, the grand opening of the new hotel is planned for the beginning of the year 2024.
A Car Collection
For car enthusiasts, Pharrell Williams has a garage full of must-have rides. According to HotCars, he spent around $2 million on the Ferrari Enzo, making it the most expensive vehicle in his collection. Features a 6.0-liter V12 engine with over 650 horsepower and a six-speed manual transmission.
Aside from his many Mercedes-Benzes, he also has a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, and a Porsche 550 Spyder.
The 2013 single “Happy,” which was featured in the Oscar-nominated film “Despicable Me,” is undoubtedly the artist’s most well-known piece of music. Williams, however, was no stranger to the music industry or to the process of creating original music. From Britney Spears’ “Boys” to Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” to Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” to the most recent “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus, which has sold 14 million copies and earned over $16 million worldwide, he has worked on some truly iconic songs. Even though Pharrell was sued over the song, he still made $5 million from it, as reported by The Guardian.
Having sold over 1.81 million copies, Happy was crowned the “biggest single of the millennium” by Official Charts. Also in 2013, the song topped the charts in six different Billboard music categories, including Adult Pop, Rhythmic Songs, and Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop.
Pharrell Williams was also a judge on the hit singing competition show The Voice (from seasons seven to ten). StyleCaster claims that he made $8 million per session from doing the same thing.
