What is Rick Ross' net worth? Rapper's 45,000 sq ft Georgia mansion was used as a palace in 'Coming 2 America'
The Eddie Murphy film is the sequel to 1988's 'Coming To America', which Rick Ross expressed as one of his favorite movies
Rick Ross' wealth has become almost synonymous with his career and now the rapper can boast another feature in a film to add to it. More specifically, Ross' real-life home has taken the spotlight after the rapper shared that it featured in the recently-released Eddie Murphy comedy 'Coming 2 America'.
Ross shared with Variety in an interview that he was very chuffed that the movie used his 45,000 square-foot mansion in Fayetteville, Georgia, to serve as the Zamundan Palace. The film is the sequel to 1988's 'Coming To America', which Rick Ross expressed as one of his favorite movies.
Production designer Jefferson Sage said, "Our big problem was, where do we find a house that had the scale of the possibilities for a very lavish palace?" Sage and his team searched for the ideal home in multiple locations before finally tapping the Ross estate for the film. Sage honored the original film by keeping a similar color palette, but noted that "we altered it a bit." He said, "We took the bones of the original set with the idea that they renovated and upgraded regularly."
Speaking of the cosmetic changes made to the property during the film's production, Ross said, "They changed the wallpaper in the dining room so I asked them to keep it up there."
He continued, "They also created that huge dining room table for a dining scene that seats 50-60 people, and they left that for me as a gift. It’s humungous." The estate sits on 235 acres and was previously owned by boxer Evander Holyfield. It has 12 bedrooms and a dining room that seats up to 100 people.
The five major locations in the house that were used in the film include the entrance foyer, two large rooms with 18-foot ceilings, the dining room and a bedroom, which was Ross’ own quarters. His mansion is believed to be the largest home in Georgia.
