Eddie Murphy Quote on Money

Eddie Murphy Quote on Money

Every bad decision I’ve made has been based on money. I grew up in the projects and you don’t turn down money there. You take it, because you never know when it’s all going to end. I made Beverly Hills Cop III because they offered me $15 million. That $15 million was worth having Roger Ebert’s thumb up my ass.

Real Estate

Over the years Eddie has owned a number of extraordinary mansions. For a period in the 1990s, Eddie lived in Granite Bay, California (near Sacramento), in an opulent custom-built mansion in a luxurious gated community. After selling the Granite Bay home, Eddie spent $10 million on a 3.7-acre undeveloped lot in the extremely exclusive Beverly Hills neighborhood of Beverly Park. Beverly Park is a gated community at the top of the most-expensive part of Beverly Hills. It’s home to stars like Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Rod Stewart and Sylvester Stallone‚Ķ in addition to a number of multi-billionaires.

After buying his lot for $10 million in 2001, Eddie spent untold millions constructing a brand new 40,000 square-foot mansion. The home has 32 rooms ‚Äď 9 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms. The property has a large pool, tennis court, library and bowling alley. If it were to hit the market, the house would easily fetch north of $30-40 million. A previous Beverly Hills home that Eddie owned in the 1980s, was listed in 2016 by a later owner for $85 million.

In 2007, Eddie paid $15 million for a 15-acre private island in the Bahamas called Rooster Cay. He previously owned a different private island called Pearl Island.

In 2012, Murphy finally sold his New Jersey home for $12 million after listing it seven years prior for $30 million.
