Sean Parker tosses another $2.5 million onto his Big Sur wedding tab

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

More dollars than sense? The Facebook billionaire who reputedly spent $10 million on his wedding with singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas Saturday will be adding $2.5 million—to settle with the California Coastal Commission. That’s for building an elaborate movie set-like backdrop with fake ruins, waterfalls and staircases—and a huge dance floor—in an environmentally sensitive area within the Big Sur coastal zone. Oh, did we mention: no permits?

Actually, the Coastal Commission doesn’t appear to be complaining. That’s a lot of money to throw around for new trails and such. Definitely a better-heeled scofflaw than they’re used to.
