Multi-millionaire musician’s mansion torn down for failing to get licence
HE became a multi-millionaire as the mastermind behind 1990s pop act Enigma.
But, it can come as no enigma that musician Michael Cretu’s 18 million euro mansion was knocked down in Ibiza this week.
His 3000 square metre house, which was built after flattening the top of a hillside, did not have a licence.
After a 14-year legal battle the authorities have finally begun to tear it down.
The palatial home in the virgin area of Corona, near San Antonio, had its own recording studio.
The Romanian musician, who has produced albums for, among others, Mike Oldfield and worked with Milly Vanilli and Boney M – had valued the house at 18 million euros. His single Sadeness by Enigma reached Number One in 20 countries.
