Mariah Carey wants to buy the world's most expensive mansion.
The 'Hero' singer has reportedly made an offer on the Fleur de Lys in Beverly Hills - a luxurious estate which has been priced at $125 million.
The five-acre estate - which was built by Texan billionaire David Saperstein - hosts 15 bedrooms, a spa and a cinema screening room which seats 50 people.
Inspired by the Parisian palace Vaux le Vicomte, the luxurious estate even boasts a 3,000 sq ft manager's house and staff quarters.
This report follows rumours the 39-year-old and husband Nick Cannon are planning to leave New York to further their careers.
A source said: "They want to move to Los Angeles permanently. She wants to act more and she has to be on the West Coast to do that. And well, then, he's got his career to think about."
This follows reports the singer - who married the actor-and-rapper following a whirlwind romance last year - has visited Beverly Hills' Southern California Reproductive Center where she met with a prenatal specialist.
Mariah is said to be desperate to give birth before she turns 40 next March.
The renowned centre is one of the leading in vitro fertilisation (IVF) clinics in California.
