Just three days after his offer was accepted to purchase the iconic Brady Bunch house in Studio City, California, former N’Sync singer Lance Bass shared that he would not be the new owner of the property, instead scooped by an undisclosed corporate buyer.
In a tweet on Friday afternoon, Bass beamed that he was set to be the new owner of the famed house.
Super excited to announce they accepted my offer on the #BradyBunch house last night!!! This is going to be a fun project!

On Instagram Sunday, Bass explained the entire situation and how it went south in a hurry.
“I’m feeling heartbroken today,” he began. “As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house — at least that’s what we were told.”
Continuing, he said that his bid, which was already over the asking price of $1.885 million and was accepted, apparently wasn’t good enough for the real estate agent.
“The next day, due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’ the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost,” he explained.
The 39-year-old added that, despite being informed of that information, he and his husband were still willing to pay above his accepted bid in order to own the property. But, that’s not how it ended up turning out and Bass was upset that he was used as a pawn in a bidding war for the house.
“How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity?” he continued. “I truly believe I was used to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this corporation intended on making their offer and it’s not a good feeling.”

Marcia Marcia Marcia! Im feeling heartbroken today. As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house–at least that’s what we were told. The agent representing the estate informed us we made the winning bid (which was WAY over the asking price) after the final deadline for all offers had passed–even writing up the “winning bid” for my team after informing me of the good news. Isn’t a deadline a deadline? This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike. The next day, due to “unforeseen circumstances” the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost. We were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources. How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity? I truly believe I was used to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this corporation intended on making their offer and it’s not a good feeling. I feel used but most importantly I’m hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome. I just hope it is not demolished. Thanks for all the love and support. #CrushedDream #ShadyAF #DouglasElliman #ShadyBrady To make me happier you can register and vote November 6th!
