Jay Z and Beyonce’s rumored plans to move to California have been thwarted by a billionaire game designer. The power couple lost a bidding war for a lavish mansion located in Beverly Hills, Calif.

According to Curbed, Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson snatched the mega-mansion from the Carters for $70 million. The house has been on the market since August, and Jay and Bey were the highest bidders before Persson closed the deal. The original asking price was $85 million.

This 23,000-square-foot property is epic. The home boasts a candy room, eight bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a movie theater, a car showroom and a 54-foot curved glass door that opens onto the pool.

The hefty price tag also covered everything inside the mansion, including artwork and cases of Dom Perignon. It’s currently the highest price ever paid for a house in the Beverly Hills area.

We're not sure how Jay Z and Beyonce feel about losing their potential love nest. They might not be able to find another bigger and more exquisite mansion in California.
