Spelling Mansion Sold to 22-Year Old

Imagine you are 22 years old, getting married, and struggling to find a new home.

It helps when Daddy steps in.

Just ask Petra Ecclestone.

Priced at $150 million, Candy Spelling's Holmby Hills mansion is on the market.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Ecclestone's father, Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone, has bought his daughter a 56,500-square-foot mansion (plus the 17,000-square-foot attic) that Candy Spelling has had on the market for $150 million, the highest U.S. home price ever.

No word on what it actually sold for, and Spelling isn't talking.
