It all makes sense now. 2 months ago, rapper Iggy Azalea and her swaggalicious boyfriend, Lakers player Nick Young (a.k.a. Swaggy P), dropped $ 3.45M on actress-singer Selena Gomez‘s altogether nondescript mock-Mediterranean mansion. As it turns out, it’;s not so much about the property’;s 6 bedrooms, barbecue pit, spa, or even basketball court. What’;s really getting all the love in this gated compound is the guesthouse that’;s been converted into one extra-fancy shoe house.
Shoe house? Is this the flashy NBA personality’;s version of Theresa Roemer’;s legendary 3-story closet? Basically. Lee Jenkins, a Sports Illustrated reporter who recently sat down with Swaggy P himself, explains:
The property, tucked behind a gate in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Tarzana, comes with a detached building that Young is converting into a “shoe house.” He employs not one but 2 “shoe keepers,” who oversee his 500-plus pairs of sneakers, a collection that includes Vans fitted with roller-skating wheels.
Who needs a guesthouse anyway? This is what the whole compound looks like:
