It doesn't always go the way of American music royal couple, Beyoncé and Jay Z.

Even when they had their eyes on the extravagant mansion in Beverly Hills and were reportedly on the verge of closing a deal in early December, a Swedish billionaire, Markus Persson, snagged the house from them.

According to celebrity website TMZ, Markus Persson beat the couple to close the deal on the $70 million mansion.

Bey and Jay were said to be the favourites to close the deal for the mansion after visiting the home six times for a tour.

TMZ reports that there were four offers on the mansion and real estate agent, Branden Williams, was previously expected to close the $70 million deal with Bey and Jay by Christmas. It is however unknown what lead to the turnaround with Markus closing the deal swiftly in six days.

Markus is now the owner of the remarkable eight-bedroom home completely furnished with each of the 15 bathrooms equipped with Toto Neorest toilets at a price of $5,600 each.

Also included in the sale was an 18-foot onyx dining room table for 24 with place settings by Roberto Cavalli at a cost of $3,700 each.

The impressive residence sits on 23,000 square feet and includes an attached 16-car garage.

The home's backyard patio boasts panoramic views of Malibu and downtown LA.
