It’s likely just pocket change for him, but Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has purchased Los Angeles’ most expensive residential property. The home, which previously belonged to businessman David Geffen, cost $165 million, but that’s just over 0.1% of Bezos’ net worth. It’d be like a person who makes $60,000 per year spending $75 on a house.

There’s probably no one that’s sad to see it go, but the RompHim is officially dead. The “fashion trend” hit the market in the spring of 2017 and it became a meme of sorts.

The founders left a notice on the website to inform any remaining customers of the big news and there’s some serious sales going on for their leftover rompers.
