Purchased by Utah Jazz player Carlos Boozer in 2004, the late musician hired 1255 Sierra Alta Way in Beverly Hills, California, while the basketball star was away for the NBA season and transformed into a purple palace.
Boozer was said to be furious when he saw his 10 beds, a 13-bath tub, a rooftop tennis court, and a swim-up bar with altered slide. But the pair became friends when Prince wired him $ 500,000 and pledged to remove the furniture and decor after his $ 95,000-a-month lease ended.
