Anton & Carole Lessine

Anton & Carole Lessine's House

This Brentwood Park estate is owned by Mikhail Lesin, who is one of Vladimir Putin's top advisers and the former Kremlin media chief. It is occupied by his son, film producer Anton Lessine, Anton's Swiss wife Carole Lessine, and their two young daughters. Lesin paid $9M for the new mansion in early 2012.

In summer 2014, a scandal arose when an otherwise mundane lawsuit revealed that Lesin had secretly purchased three multi-million dollar mansions in Los Angeles (one for himself, one for Anton, and one for his daughter Ekaterina Lesina) at a cost of nearly $30 million. He and his family also purchased at least 8 luxury vehicles, at a cost of more than $1 million, including a $250k Bentley and a $300k Ferrari.

It was also revealed that Lesin had invested tens of millions of dollars through anonymous corporations into the production of Hollywood blockbusters, including the Brad Pitt thriller "The Fury".

Following the emergence of these details, Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker called for the Department of Justice to investigate whether Lesin's money was being illegally laundered in the US and/or was generated via government corruption.

The original lawsuit was the result of two former nannies suing Carole Lessine over wrongful termination and abuse.
