Well this is both awesome, and incredibly sad at the same time.
We’ll forever know Kenny Rogers for his smash country hits, like “The Gambler,” “Lady,” “Lucille,” his electric duet with Dolly Parton for “Islands in the Stream,” and so many more, racking up 24 number one hits along the way.
Even though he passed away back in 2020 at the age of 81, his music will forever be timeless.
Back in 1990, Rogers built a luxurious 15,000 square-foot mansion on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, featuring six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a four car garage, a state of the art gym, a massive pool, and a massive basement featuring a built in bar, all sitting on five acres of land.
He lived in the mansion all the way up until 2006, when he sold it for $8.5 million to a family from Nigeria, who owned several businesses across the U.S.
However, story has it the family got into some serious trouble with the IRS and FBI for shady business dealings, and they owed the $6.5 million in back taxes.
After the family allegedly fled back to their home country in 2018, a family member was left to watch over the mansion.
But, instead of taking care of it, they were opening it up for wild parties for several rappers, like Offset, 21 Savage, and Russ.
Needless to say, the neighbors didn’t take that too well, and after the police got involved enough times and shut it all down, the mansion has been left neglected.
With that being said, YouTuber BigBankz, who says he’s an explorer from Oklahoma, was able to get inside and film what’s left of the once luxurious and gorgeous mansion.
Surprisingly enough, there’s still a good bit left inside of the home, and it’s pretty intriguing, yet also sad, to see what once was.
