Lee told FOX 26, “I built this house for not just my immediate family but for my extended family including friends.”

The 20,000 square foot compound holds him, his three sisters and their families.

Lee is a former Alvin Ailey Dance Company performer and has worked with the Clinton Foundation and served on committees by President Obama.

He has hung up pictures with Rosa Parks, President Clinton and even former first lady Michelle Obama.

Lee’s sister said, “It’s beautiful. I love it. We each have a kitchen. We have a living room. We have a washer dryer area. We have two bedrooms. One master and guest and each of those have separate bathrooms.”

He even put in a hair salon for the family, but what he enjoys most is that he gets to enjoy his family.
