Martin Lawrence Renting Out His Beverly Hills Mansion – $200,000/Month

Syndicated —

Rather than deal with the prospect of selling a home, comedic actor Martin Lawrence is taking the landlord route, listing his home for rent for an astounding $200,000 a month.

Lawrence's massive Beverly Hills home was built in 1992 and, according to the property listing, is worth every penny of the steep rental price. Measuring at 13,900 square feet with 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, the 90210 rental sits on 2.24 gated acres.

The home is a "French contemporary" estate with high-end finishes including pink marble in one of the master baths, marble floors in the dining room and foyer. The home also features stained glass skylights by artist Salvatore Polizzi. A wine room, movie theater with concessions stand, 1000-square-feet gym and downstairs staff quarters round out the rest of the enormous property.

Lawrence got his big break on "Star Search," and hit the big time sharing the screen with Will Smith in "Bad Boys" leading to his own sitcom "Martin," in which Lawrence created and starred in.

Lawrence is currently in the midst of a divorce, which could explain the sudden listing of his home. He also owns a property in Toluca Lake, which he's held since 1992 and a home in Virginia he bought in 2005.

The listing is held by Connie Blankenship of Hilton and Hyland.
