Lance Bass has revealed he has lost out in the bidding war for the iconic Brady Bunch home, which went up for sale last month.
The former 'NSYNC member tweet that his offer the purchase the home had been accepted, only to learn the next day that another buyer was willing to spend 'any price' to scoop up the property themselves.
'Marcia Marcia Marcia!' Bass wrote on Instagram, referencing the legendary American sitcom.
'I’m feeling heartbroken today,' he added. 'As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house — at least that’s what we were told.'
Continuing, Bass said, 'The agent representing the estate informed us we made the winning bid (which was WAY over the asking price) after the final deadline for all offers had passed — even writing up the ‘winning bid’ for my team after informing me of the good news.
'This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike.
'The next day, due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’ the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost,' he wrote, adding that while he and his husband, Michael Turchin, 'were prepared to go even higher,' they were 'totally discouraged' from doing so, and were told that the new buyer would 'outperform any bid with unlimited resources.'
Bass asks, 'How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity?
'I truly believe I was used to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this corporation intended on making their offer and it’s not a good feeling.'
'I feel used but most importantly I’m hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome. I just hope it is not demolished. Thanks for all the love and support.'
The house served as the facade of the Brady home on the iconic series that ran from 1969 to 1974.
It's unclear who has purchased the home, but Deadline reports that several developers were looking at the property and hoping to potentially demolish it.
The home is reportedly the second most photographed house in the US after the White House.
