Justin Bieber will reportedly be summering in the Hamptons this August. According to Page Six, whose Doppler radar tracks Bieber’s movements well, the singer rented a $5 million home in Montauk for three weeks starting at the end of July. The fee for the time is $375,000. The house, its source said, wasn’t even on the market for rent. The owners will simply move out to make way for the young pop star and his summer plans. And who can blame them? For that amount of “Sorry” royalties, who wouldn’t happily hand over the keys to their multi-million house for three weeks? Bieber could wear whatever I left in the closet if he wanted. He could wear my shoes.
Page Six’s other scoop is that Dylan Eckardt had the pleasure of closing the deal. In a 2016 profile in Vanity Fair, the wildly successful townie surfer turned real estate agent dubbed himself the “fucking rock star of real estate” and the “prince of Montauk.” He also allegedly got Rihanna a house on the East End for around the same time. She’ll pay $415,000 for a month out there, a small price for the chance to get away from it all next door to the likes of Ina Garten and Donald Trump Jr. and, maybe, Justin Bieber. A Rihanna source and a rep for Bieber have both denied the respective deals. (Eckardt has not yet responded to Vanity Fair’s request for comment.)
Bieber has spent a couple recent summers in the Hamptons, and at least one with his now wife, Hailey. Just a few years ago now (where does the time go?), Bieber visited Wölffer Estate with his friend Patrick Schwarzenegger. He stopped by Sag Harbor with Hailey two years ago nearly to the day. He even ran into some car trouble while there, just like the locals. Whether he is or isn’t staying in that particular rental for three weeks, it wouldn’t be unusual to see him around town this time of year.
