Who gets the best of Beyonce and Jay-Z? A 35-year-old Swedish video game programmer, that’s who!
TMZ just learned that Markus Persson plunked down $70 million cash for a 23,000 square foot palace in Beverly Hills..the same house that Jay Z and Beyonce also wanted.
So who is this dude? Well, he’s a programmer who he sold his company, Mojang (the company that created the video game Minecraft) to Microsoft for $2.5 billion dollars, that’s who. And now, he owns a ridiculously awesome house.
Beyonce and Jay Z visited the house multiple times and made an offer but Markus beat them out at 70 million dollars. Aww, whatever will the king and Queen of R&B do?!
