The real-life inspiration for Ari Gold from “Entourage” just beefed up his entourage.

Ari Emanuel, co-CEO of talent agency William Morris Endeavor, spent $11.5 million to acquire his neighbor’s 1.25-acre home on Mandeville Canyon in Brentwood, property records show. The off-market deal closed July 20.

With his latest expenditure, Emanuel will now own a 2-acre spread in the star-studded Brentwood neighborhood, valued at $28 million. The powerhouse agent paid $16.5 million in 2015 for the home next door, which sits on three-quarters of an acre.

His new home has five bedrooms and six bathrooms, and 4,330 square feet overall. A landscaped backyard and swimming pool complete the outside.

It’s also a Traditional-style home — a stark contrast from the all-white modernist manse next door.

Yolanda’s Little Black Book first reported the deal.

Emanuel started off as an agent trainee at William Morris’ rival firm, Creative Artist Agency, before he went on to co-found Endeavor Talent Agency. Endeavor merged with William Morris Agency in 2009, and Emanuel went on to become the co-CEO of one of the largest agencies in Hollywood.

A fixture on the celeb scene, Emanuel represents Oprah Winfrey and Larry David, among others, and also owns a 6,900-square-foot estate nearby in Brentwood Park. He acquired that home in 2005 for $9.85 million.
