Tinder’s recently reinstated CEO Sean Rad is swiping left on his Los Angeles condo at the Mirabella building in Westwood. He listed the two-bedroom property for almost $1.8 million.  

Rad, who is from a wealthy Persian family in Bel Air, purchased the 2,298-square-foot, apartment in July 2012 for $1.3 million, Variety reports. The condo’s master suite has no art on the walls and is oddly-angled. It has a walk-in closet and leads out to one of the unit’s two terraces. There’s also a home office, a powder room and a marble bathtub that’s big enough for a party.  

The Wilshire Corridor condo sits in Westwood bordering Holmby Hills, Century City and Beverly Hills.

The building has 24-hour security, which is probably mandatory for a character like Rad, who leans hard into controversy. Rad was demoted to president of Tinder in the aftermath of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen by another Tinder co-founder, Whitney Wolfe. He was reinstated after a settlement was reached with Wolfe, who went on to create the now-popular dating app Bumble.

Rad also has a hard time swiping left on his stream-of-consciousness thoughts. In November, he gave a filter-free interview to the British newspaper London Evening Standard, in which he said that a “really, really famous” supermodel was “begging” him for sex. It was conveniently published right before Tinder parent company Match Group’s scheduled IPO, forcing Match to issue a statement disavowing the interview, and saying the company didn’t approve or condone it.
