Tyler Perry held an auction yesterday (September 13th) to sell off the contents of his new home. Perry purchased the new home in Johns Creek, located north of Atlanta, that was previously owned by a divorcing couple.
Dean Gardens, the iconic Johns Creek Estate which has been on the market for years, was finally sold to the multi-talented film and TV mogul a few months ago.
According to reports, Perry paid $7.6 million, which is quite the deal considering it was originally listed at $13.9 million. Apparently, he will be tearing down the entire 32,000- square foot mansion sitting on 58 acres of land and building his dream home from scratch. Features of the Dean Gardens Estate include two carriage houses, a wedding chapel, an Asian Tea Garden and an 18 -hole golf course. The mega-estate was originally built in 1992 by technology entrepreneur Larry Dean and his wife Lynda but they were separated before construction was complete.

Lakers great Ron Artest has decided to auction off his championship ring! Artest finally won a title in June after 11 regular seasons of trying and says that he’ll never wear it so he’s putting it’s value to a good cause.
You may recall Artest shouting out his psychiatrist during his post-game interview, just moments after his championship win…. well now he’s planning to sell the championship ring to raise funds to put more psychologists, psychiatrists and therapists in schools.
“I’m never going to put it on,” he said.
Artest plans to soon announce details of what he hopes will become a worldwide auction, and he takes possession of the jewelry in an Oct. 26 pre-game ceremony before the Lakers open against the Rockets. It’s an incredible gesture. But it’s even more meaningful as a statement.
“You work so hard to get a ring, and now you have a chance to help more people than just yourself, instead of just satisfying yourself,” he said. “What’s better than that? For me, this is very important.” (Source)
