Machine Gun Kelly Buys Logan Paul’s Sprawling Los Angeles Mansion

After several months on the market, Logan Paul finally sold his big Encino mansion last week. The nearly 9,000-square-foot structure went for $7.5 million, a nice jump over the $6.6 million the veteran YouTuber and podcaster paid for the place in late 2017, but significantly less than the $9 million he originally wanted.

Records now reveal that the new owner is a friend of Paul’s — Houston-born Colson Baker, the rapper-turned-pop-punk musician far better known to fans as Machine Gun Kelly. And it’s probably no surprise that MGK, 32, would be in the market for a big new house; the tabloid-friendly star is reportedly newly engaged to longtime girlfriend Megan Fox.

Despite the $7.5 million sale price, it’s not clear if Paul walked with any sort of profit. Shortly after he acquired the estate, the Ohio native gave the interiors a very custom remodel, which he later showed off on his YouTube channel. He also installed new perimeter fencing and a high-tech security system after several trespassers and stalkers somehow managed to gain access to the house. Because of that, Paul also employed full-time security guards stationed outside the property 24/7 — a not-insignificant expense.
