If it was just an investment property, it succeeded. Canadian songstress Celine Dion has sold her Kardashian-esque Las Vegas manse in an off-market deal for $30 million, according to the Dirt real-estate gossip website.
That’s more than triple the $9.2 million Dion shelled out for it in 2017 — though she reportedly made many renovations.
The first house built inside the guarded gates of The Summit Club, Dion’s 1.4-acre estate boasts four bedrooms and 12 bathrooms in more than 30,000 feet of living space. Its pool and spa overlooks the tee boxes of the 12th hole on the Summit Club’s golf course.
It’s not clear whether the six-time Grammy winner ever lived in property, however. Dion was assumed to have bought it to reduce what was supposed to be her nightly work commute from 27 miles — the distance from her longtime home on Henderson, Nev.’s Lake Las Vegas to Resorts World Las Vegas — to 17.
If you’re a Dion fan, however, you already know that her commitment to Resorts World was placed on an indefinite hold that’s looking more and more permanent. And this real-estate move doesn’t help that look.
The 55-year-old was diagnosed last year with Stiff Person’s Syndrome, a rare, progressive neurological disorder marked by stiff muscles that spasm painfully when triggered by noise and emotional distress. This caused her to indefinitely delay the start of her Resorts World residency, which was scheduled to kick off Nov. 5, 2021.
“Unfortunately the spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to,” Dion said in a tearful video announcing her diagnosis last December.
In January 2022, Dion’s condition forced the cancelation of the remainder of the North American leg of her “Courage” tour, which had already been rescheduled twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Later, those same issues forced the postponement of the tour’s international leg from May 2022 to February 2023. The first 22 of those rescheduled shows were rescheduled a second time, to 2024, while the rescheduled “Courage” concerts were set to run from August 26, 2023 in the Netherlands to Oct. 4, 2023 in Finland.
On May 26, 2023, Dion scrapped the entire tour.
“I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again,” Dion said in a statement. “I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%.”
Her House Will Go On and On
The new owner of Dion’s home, Dirt reports, is private-equity billionaire Chuck Esserman, who also owns Famous Amos cookies via his company, TSG Consumer Partners.
Other Summit Club residents and/or property owners include movie star Mark Wahlberg, motivational speaker Tony Robbins, and Las Vegas Golden Knights owner Bill Foley.
Dion reportedly still lives in her Lake Las Vegas home with the three sons she had by late husband René Angelil. She paid $5 million for that house in 2003.
