The Beckhams buy £36 million Versace palace
The Beckhams have bought the former mansion of the murdered fashion designer Gianni Versace in Miami for £36 million, according to the Daily Mirror.
The property was lived in by Versace for five years after he bought the mansion in 1992, before he was fatally shot on the doorstep by a serial killer in 1997.

David and Victoria Beckham, who are no strangers to Versace designs, are believed to have been searching for a family home in Miami, after David’s recent purchase of an MLS team based there. The mansion contains 10 bedrooms, so would provide more than enough space for the Beckham brood.
The home was auctioned off in September 2013, when it was acquired by the owners of a nearby hotel, but reported plans for an expansion clearly didn’t come to fruition. It sits on the busy Ocean Drive, and will be the only residential property on the street.

On top of the home’s 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, it also contains five libraries and a magnificent 54-foot, mosaic-tiled, 24-carat-gold-lined pool. It’s full of unique Versace design elements as well as lavish ornaments and statues.
When Versace purchased the property for £6 million in 1992, it was in a bad state, but he spent a reported £20 million buying the property next door and renovating both homes into the one seen in these pictures.
The home is no stranger to the stars; while it was owned by Versace, Madonna was reportedly a regular visitor.
