A Huffington Post report published Friday claimed that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer had purchased the most expensive home in San Francisco history. As it turns out, that isn't true at all.
The report said that Mayer and her husband, Zachary Bogue, bought a mansion for $35 million. But on Sunday, Mayer posted a
". @HuffingtonPost @zackbogue and I did not buy this house. Again, don't believe everything you read on the Internet. Cc @ariannahuff," Mayer said.
On Sunday evening, The Huffington Post removed the story from its website and published the following editor's note:
"A story has been removed that indicated Marissa Mayer and Zach Bogue bought the most expensive house in San Francisco history. Mayer later tweeted that they did not purchase the property in question, which is situated on the city's famed Billionaires Row. Real estate records only confirmed that the deed transferred in March to "Bellihouse LLC," which appears to be unrelated to Mayer or Bogue. The property was assessed at $23.8 million. While none of the parties involved have publicly confirmed the final sale price, it's likely one of the most expensive in the city's history. We regret any confusion and hope the buyers enjoy their new home."
