Marshmello Upgrades to $10.8 Million Mulholland Estates Mansion (

Turns out that the mystery buyer who last summer dropped a whopping $10.8 million on a big house in Mulholland Estates — that guard-gated community in the mountains above Sherman Oaks that’s home to Christina Aguilera, Vanna White, Kendall Jenner, and Paris Hilton — was Chris Comstock, the 28-year-old Philadelphia native better known to his millions of fans as Marshmello.

It’s been a nonstop party since 2015 for Comstock and his chewily sweet alter-ego, who established himself as one of the world’s top electronic music acts seemingly overnight. Behind the slickly produced hit records (“Silence,” “Wolves,” “Friends,” “Alone”) and the omnipresent smiley bucket head is Marshmello’s well-oiled marketing dream team; his hard-charging manager Moe Shalizi is often credited for the speedy creation of the Marshmello brand, and networking has helped, too — early shoutouts from other big-name EDM acts like Skrillex and Tiesto proved invaluable to his early success.
