Sean Parker's $10 Million Wedding Just Became A $12.5 Million Wedding

Billionaire entrepreneur Sean Parker's $10 million Californian wedding to singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas just got a whole lot more expensive. The Facebook billionaire and Napster co-founder built an original set for the nuptials that wouldn't have looked out of place on a major movie studio's lot. According to Fox News, Parker built a cottage, fake ruins, waterfalls, staircases and a gigantic dance floor for the luxury bash, though he did it all in an ecologically sensitive area of Big Sur, without the proper permits.

The whole circus resulted in neighbour complaints and a county investigation got underway. Mr Parker had built the set at a closed campground owned by the Ventana Inn & Spa after getting permission from the owners. "Despite the continued unauthorized closure of the campground to the public, earlier this year, the property owner entered into an agreement giving Sean Parker exclusive use of the campground for several months to construct a sizeable wedding venue," the commission's staff wrote in a report.

However, Parker, the former President of Facebook Inc who was portrayed by Justin Timberlake in David Fincher's The Social Network, did not get the permission from the proper authorities and has such incurred a settlement payment of $2.5 million. "Mr. Parker has been extremely cooperative and actively involved in working with Coastal Commission staff to reach this resolution which both addresses our Coastal Act concerns and will result in greater coastal access and conservation in the Big Sur and Monterey Peninsula areas," Charles Lester, the commission's executive director, said in a statement.

In a statement, Parker said he was delighted to help the commission achieve its conservation goals and to help Big Sur area businesses. Two words. Pocket change.
