Sometime around about now, Sergey Brin and his second wife Nicole Shanahan are making the move into their opulent new Malibu estate. The co-founder of Google bought a property that once belonged to the Singer Pink.
Located about 30 miles west of downtown Los Angeles, Malibu is known for being a coastal paradise and a home to the rich and famous who buy beachfront properties there.
Pink’s former Point Dume estate – now Sergey Brin’s – is located in the 90265 zip code in Malibu, which just so happens to also be one of the world’s wealthiest neighborhoods. Jan Koum, co-founder of WhatsApp, is now one of Brin’s new neighbors.

Sergey Brin, 48, emigrated to the U.S. from the former Soviet Union back in 1979. He was born in Moscow to a Jewish family that fled communism and religious persecution there. And once in America Brin grew up to be a poster boy for the American dream, turning his personal dreams into a fortune. So he deserves a Malibu trophy home.
Born Alecia Beth Moore in Pennsylvania in 1979 to a Jewish mother, the singer Pink – as she is known professionally – has a slew of hit songs under her belt. These include “There You Go,” “Feel Good Time” and “Last to Know.”
Pink reportedly bought the Malibu home in 2010 for $11.9 million. She then sold it in 2016 for a measly $12.6 million. Sergey Brin bought the property from its most recent owner, French investment banker, media magnate, Matthieu Pigasse, for $13.5 million.
The mansion is situated on 1.2 acres of land. It was built in 2005, and holds 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms over 6,300 square feet of space. And its right by the Malibu beach too.
