Prince sued over '3121' mansion

NOTE: This happened in January. (There was apparently a settlement in February)

Smoking Gun reports :

Landlord sued singer over purple alterations to Hollywood manse.


MARCH 20--Claiming that his $70,000-a-month tenant Prince undertook an extremely tacky makeover of his Los Angeles mansion, an NBA star recently sued the mercurial singer over the purple-hued alterations. In a January complaint, Carlos Boozer, a forward with the Utah Jazz, sued Prince/MPG Music over unauthorized work done on the West Hollywood property, which is owned by the C Booz Multifamily I LLC. According to the lawsuit, Prince/MPG Music violated its eight-month lease by "painting the exterior of the [house] with purple striping, 'prince' symbol, and numbers 3121." Prince's new album, "3121," is scheduled for release tomorrow.

Proves the FAQ wrong about the address smile

I knew he was renting the place but I had no idea it was Carlos Boozer's property.

I didn't realize he was just renting it; I thought he bought the place. $70,000 a month??!!

I always thought he owned the place. Seems like he doesn't want to leave MPLS forever.

And I still say that his interior designer is on crack... biggrin

Me too. I was under the impression that he had the house. I mean he has enough money to buy it. Very interesting.

this is a prelude to the imminent cancellation of this silly "purple ticket" contest. prince will claim he can't have the performance because the owner of the home will not allow it.

he'll then throw a huge thing at the park and charge everyone 31.21 for a ticket. no winners, no contest.

The guy is a "Loozer" because he is upset that Prince broke rental agreements including cutting large holes in bedroom walls amongst the other things listed.

I remember the Oprah show thinking that his place looked tacky. Also someone just the other day posted pictures from the new CD of the bedroom at 3121 with the words Satisfied and 3121 written on a blanket and pillows. Its just looked so damn childish and cheap.

That being said why would Boozer (a pretty good college basketball player for Duke just a couple of years ago a lesser pro) sue Prince over something like that. You sue when the tenant doesn't restore to its former state prio to him leaving. I'm a landlord so I know. Story sounds bogus

Well it sounded as if Prince was doing permanent damage. I mean cutting large holes through basement walls etc. But I'm sure Prince agreed to return to its former state and that is why the lawsuit was dropped.

I mean he gave Prince a "quit" order and he didn't listen so he had to take it to the next level with the lawsuit.

It always takes a while before records are updated. I really doubt this silly lawsuit would have any effect one way or the other on record sales. Prince used to get sued like every other day back when he had no money in the mid-nineties.

I always assumed the house was rented. In initial reports about the house, it was at least speculated once or twice that it was rented. The other reason is that I think Prince would spend months remodeling if it was going to be his property. In LA, he always did rent.

maybe its a reference to one of the following:

Psalms 31:21
Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

Jeremiah 31:21
Set up road signs, make guideposts; set your heart toward the highway, even the way by which you went: turn again, virgin of Israel, turn again to these your cities.

Deuteronomy 31:21
And when many disasters and difficulties come upon them, this song will testify against them, because it will not be forgotten by their descendants. I know what they are disposed to do, even before I bring them into the land I promised them on oath.

Proverbs 31:21
She is not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

The contrest rules state from the getgo that it will be at Prince's home or another location of his chosing if necessary. He can have the thing anywhere he wants in LA and it won't make a damn bit of difference to the Purple ticket thing.

Yes, if you read the full article, the lawsuit was filed in January, but was retracted in February, so I guess they've come to some agreement. The damage that has been done can certainly be rectified, especially with the money Prince has got. But it is strange to file against a tenant while they're still renting, they should have waited until Prince left to see if things were put back the way they were. I mean, painting over some purple paint is no big deal!

It's sort of surprising that Prince didn't buy a property outright, especially with the $50 million profit from the 2004 tour, but perhaps there aren't that many properties available to buy that met Prince's requirements, but jeez, that $70,000 a month rent money is totally going down the drain when it could have been invested in a bought house.

Well, I was told long ago that no such address exist in that area so I knew 3121 was not the address.

The 3 day notice was served in Nov. and the suit was filed in Jan. Since the landlord accepted rent in Dec. and Jan., that means he had to dismiss the case.

If P made alterations to the property without consent he had to pay damages, so they probably settled on a dollar amount.

That makes this a non story. The real story may be Smoking Gun publishing his address for all the world to see. I wonder what's gonna happen behind that?

The check. The string he dropped. The Mona Lisa. The musical notes taken out of a hat. The glass. The toy shotgun painting. The things he found. Therefore, everything seen–every object, that is, plus the process of looking at it–is a Duchamp.

Most evictions are filed while the tenant is still in residence. When you file an eviction while the tenant is still in the property it means that if they do not comply they have to leave the property or be forcibly removed, so I guess they were prepared to put him out. eek You can still sue for money damages even after the eviction has been executed.

I wish I could remember where I read it, but one of the very first reports about the purple ticket contest did state that the concert would be at Paisley Park. Later, when I heard it was at his house, I thought, "no way"! lol

He really could designate any location he wants for the contest.

Nothing, just adding to your point, that one way or another, whether it's a party at his LA pad, Paisley Park, elsewhere or cash equivalent, the winners get something out of it. I don't think there should be some uproar if he cancelled the purple ticket if he's handing out $3000.

Well, there'd be no point in filing an eviction if the tenant had already left the residence! Of course evictions are filed while the tenant is in residence - but this wasn't an eviction order, it was a file for damages which might have led to an eviction if they hadn't come to some arrangement.

Well it sounded as if Prince was doing permanent damage. I mean cutting large holes through basement walls etc. But I'm sure Prince agreed to return to its former state and that is why the lawsuit was dropped.

I mean he gave Prince a "quit" order and he didn't listen so he had to take it to the next level with the lawsuit.


Yes, if you read the full article, the lawsuit was filed in January, but was retracted in February, so I guess they've come to some agreement. The damage that has been done can certainly be rectified, especially with the money Prince has got. But it is strange to file against a tenant while they're still renting, they should have waited until Prince left to see if things were put back the way they were. I mean, painting over some purple paint is no big deal!

It's sort of surprising that Prince didn't buy a property outright, especially with the $50 million profit from the 2004 tour, but perhaps there aren't that many properties available to buy that met Prince's requirements, but jeez, that $70,000 a month rent money is totally going down the drain when it could have been invested in a bought house.


absolutely...totally wasteful. Also I'm a bit suprised that Boozer can afford such property. These Basketball players are making serious loot...and hes not even a good one

Most evictions are filed while the tenant is still in residence. When you file an eviction while the tenant is still in the property it means that if they do not comply they have to leave the property or be forcibly removed, so I guess they were prepared to put him out. eek You can still sue for money damages even after the eviction has been executed.


Well, there'd be no point in filing an eviction if the tenant had already left the residence! Of course evictions are filed while the tenant is in residence - but this wasn't an eviction order, it was a file for damages which might have led to an eviction if they hadn't come to some arrangement.




I was referring to the portion of your post where you stated that it is strange to file against a tenant while they're still renting.

I know it's not an eviction order. It's a quit or cure notice and complaint. The thing is, damages aside, once the landlord accepts rent money after serving a 3 day notice his attorney has no choice except to dismiss the action. At that point, P would only need to pay damages to avoid having the landlord re-file the suit on the same issues.
Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

nod That was probably the most surprising thing out of all this (though I may change my mind after I read the whole thing!), I never would have dreamed he was renting!

He could afford to buy for cash, then sell the house a year or two later for at least as much as he paid...rather than spening $70K/month for rent. Plus noone would be able to tell him he couldn't decorate and modify as he wished (as long as it was within code). wink

But maybe he just HAD to have this particular house and the "C Booz Multifamily I LLC" wouldn't sell it, so he rented. shrug


And what the heck is the MPG? I can't believe it's just a typo, it's all over the legal paperwork!

Edit: oh crap, I just realized this is currently the "Featured Document" on smokinggun.com! Interesting how they waited until the day of 3121's release to publish this! rolleyes Coincidence, maybe, but I doubt it!

Reportedly she was the owner of the Toronto home...maybe the prenup said that would be what she got if things went sour. wink Anyway, didn't Prince basically buy the Spanish mansion FOR Mayte?

...Flying even further from his previous condemnations of business formalities, the couple has, according to Toronto's National Post, purchased a $3.5 million mansion in one of the city's richest neighborhoods. Prince's bride has a new home on the Bridle Path.

Land registry records uncovered by the newspaper indicate the sprawling, secluded home was bought by a company called Gamillah Holdings, whose president just happens to be Testolini.

Exactly! In the state of California what he buys while married is considered equal property amongst husband and wife. Thats ALOT of money he would lose to his wife if and when there was a divorce. Maybe a few million to much for him to hand over. smile

I didn't realize he was just renting it; I thought he bought the place. $70,000 a month??!!

Me too. I was under the impression that he had the house. I mean he has enough money to buy it. Very interesting.


nod Same here, with Prince's money, it seems like he would be more apt to buy a place, rather than renting it. But to each their own, Prince undoubtedly has his reasons. shrug smile

you people never really believed the purple ticket thing was actually gonna happen did you? he'll find a way to worm out of it. i'm tellin' you, this whole lawsuit is going to culminate in him moving and cancelling the contest. all this will happen, of course, after fams buy up multiple copies of the disc. lol


Exactly!!! That is what I've been saying about this whole "purple ticket" thing from the very beginning. I refuse to get all excited over it, and will believe it when I see it, since we all know how Prince changes his mind in a split second anyway. hmm

You might be on to something. One of boys went thru a divorce and handed a mutual friend over a $1 million bucks to keep it from getting pinched in the divorce. It worked too.....Prince may be smarter than I gave him credit for. Cali is a community state so she would get HALF if he was to get a divorce.

I'm willing to bet that Prince is not paying the rent for this L.A. house; Universal Studios is probably paying the tab. Can't artists negotiate things like this? Seems Prince is pretty savy about how to get others to pay for stuff on his behalf. Just a thought.


You are right! Might be a part of HIS contract.

Unfortunately, I believe that if you lease a property it is still not yours to do with what you want. If these things happened he will probably have to pay for the damage, or the record company will.

I personally see Prince spending 70,000 a month on a house that he doesn't own, not to mention all of the decorating and remodeling that he has done. I could be wrong but I can't see it.

Considering that many economists think the L.A. housing market is about 50% overvalued, buying right now could be a bad decision. A year from now, that $8.5 million home might be worth only $5.6 million.

If he owned the place, he'd be in a bad position. In light of past housing market crashes, it could take up to a decade for the house to reach $8.5 million again. But since he's a tenant, that's not his problem. He can just decide not to renew the lease, turn in the keys, and wave bye-bye.

Also, even if you don't think that we're in for housing market crashes (and there are some economists who take this position), a good rule of thumb is that you shouldn't buy unless you're prepared to spend 3-5 years living there.

I agree but I doubt there is a lease to renew as there is a reason that the lease runs from September through May. This would be basketball season exactly (training camp through the play-offs) as I'm sure Carlos lives there in the off-season.

Probably almost strategic timing, you know for 70k, and living in your house Prince is going to do some crazy shit to crib, you just have to look at the interior of Paisley Park, Purple and Brass everything, symbols, bizarre glass containers and shit, gold records and over size cushions with harem sized dressings, big ass couches and shit, spa pools full of purple flower petals, Purple gauze screens and all the other signs of nouveau riche, whats sad is u know his decor is going to date quickly.
Probably Prince and him made a deal, yo let me wreck your house, I pay u heaps to do and fix it all up, you complain when I release my next album and well both get paid!!

You would think, w/ that kind of monthly payment, that there was a clause (or whatever) in there that Princey could make alterations? Maybe? I dunno shrug

This reminds me of when they sued him for not paying for those damn walking sticks disbelief
heart prince I never met you, but I LOVE you & I will forever!! Thank you for being YOU - my little Princey, the best to EVER do it prince heart

I'm just shocked that a mediocre NBA player like Carlos Boozer have his own multi media company. I guess that's smart though, building for the future and not blowing it all on back child support like some NBA guys.

Me too. I was under the impression that he had the house. I mean he has enough money to buy it. Very interesting.


If you notice the house is rented by Prince/MPG Music. It's a business venture where he gets write-offs.

why the number 3121? well, numerologically speaking, 3+1+2+1 = 7, which is Prince's Chaldean Numerological number, him being born on the 7th of June and everything.

Also, if u check the book 'The Secret Language of Birthdays', June the 7th is apparently the day of 'the Entertainer'.

hmmmmm.

Smoking Gun reports :

Landlord sued singer over purple alterations to Hollywood manse.


MARCH 20--Claiming that his $70,000-a-month tenant Prince undertook an extremely tacky makeover of his Los Angeles mansion, an NBA star recently sued the mercurial singer over the purple-hued alterations. In a January complaint, Carlos Boozer, a forward with the Utah Jazz, sued Prince/MPG Music over unauthorized work done on the West Hollywood property, which is owned by the C Booz Multifamily I LLC. According to the lawsuit, Prince/MPG Music violated its eight-month lease by "painting the exterior of the [house] with purple striping, 'prince' symbol, and numbers 3121." Prince's new album, "3121," is scheduled for release tomorrow.

I don't understand the problem! Prince has great taste and style, It's not like the colors of the Utah Jazz aren't simiular . Put a blue stripe in and call it a day. It's not like he hasn't forked over a mint already!

The renting is probably a smart move.
The $70,000 per month AND the legal fees are a business expense.
Which should bring down the tax bill for his tour triumph a coupla years back.

That said I'm not a US tax expert so any orger thinking of renting a home in the Hollywood hills as a business expense should take independent advice first.

On the surface I'd agree but owning in long run far outweighs any "tax" advantages one might have.

I wish Prince the best of luck. His landlord has no taste. Anyways, I like Prince's taste of redecorating in hues of purple and yellow. Yes, purple and yellow go together really nice.

I would expect no less. I never bought into the "it's simply an address" theory


maybe its a reference to one of the following:

Psalms 31:21
Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

Jeremiah 31:21
Set up road signs, make guideposts; set your heart toward the highway, even the way by which you went: turn again, virgin of Israel, turn again to these your cities.

Deuteronomy 31:21
And when many disasters and difficulties come upon them, this song will testify against them, because it will not be forgotten by their descendants. I know what they are disposed to do, even before I bring them into the land I promised them on oath.

Proverbs 31:21
She is not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

i thought prince's place looked heck-a-slamming, no really gnarly, seriously, i thought it looked stunning (is that a word we use in 2006??), greetings markus

God created the earth, the moon and the stars in 7 days (according to reports in this weeks National Inquirer) but the Dutch took much longer to create The Netherlands from raw materials sea and sand. This is a long version of a much more snappy quote delivered to me by a Dutchman. At the time, I was completely smashed having unwisely sampled some of Amsterdam's local fare but the following day I put my copy of The Old Testament (buy it now at Amazo) in a fish tank as a tribute to the Dutch. Erm...just thought you should know.

What was the question again?

You've seen Paisley right? Prince's decorating tastes are so bad I believe he has trademarked the term "tacky".



I have always liked Prince's taste. Very colorful and stimulating to the creative mind. Not tacky at all and besides I like purple/violet. cool
