But Djokovic refuses to accept U.S. health regulations so he can’t enter the country. It’s a shame that he wasn’t able to enjoy this mesmerizing apartment because it’s special (via Harper’s Bazaar).

Hill fits into the latter category after he bought this ludicrous Miami mansion. He’s enjoying the tax benefits of living in Florida because this is ridiculous.
The wide receiver left Kansas City and didn’t look back. Now he is the proud owner of a seven-million-dollar mansion with a shark tank and a vintage arcade room.

It’s difficult to say where James’s main residence is because he owns at least three mansions in the L.A. area.

LeBron lives in a different universe from most of the ordinary people reading this list (via Architectural Digest).
