Just 10 months after purchasing a Bel Air Crest mansion from Kim Kardashian, Ukrainian billionaire Marina Acton sold the estate. The sale price was nearly $4 million what she paid.

Acton bought the 9,000-square-foot home from Kardashian and husband Kanye West for $17.8 million in November 2017. The couple had paid $9 million for it in 2013, before undertaking extensive renovations.

Acton sold it a few weeks ago for $14 million, according to Yolanda’s Little Black Book. The buyers are a local couple, Shahram and Niloo Shoushani, who appear to own commercial real estate in Nevada.

Acton listed the home in June for $18 million, planning a Florida move, and expecting a child.  She is reportedly married to WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton, who is worth $3.8 billion. She has called herself a “Silicon Valley venture capitalist,” but purchased the L.A. mansion to pursue a career in music.

The sale was notable in part because the sales contract reportedly included a “friendship” clause that required Kardashian follow Acton on her Instagram account, and show up to certain public events with Acton.

The house itself was once a Tuscan-style home, but was completely stripped down and rebuilt with all-white interiors. It has a large pool and a cabana in the backyard. [YLBB] — Dennis Lynch
