His lavish new property, which allegedly set him back €18 million, is located in La Moraleja – an affluent area located in the municipality of Alcobendas. Over the years, the community has attracted a cluster of famous faces, including American actor Richard Gere who purchased a property in La Moraleja for €11 million.

Richard, who wed Alejandra in Spain, went on to say: "For Alejandra it will be wonderful to be closer to her family, her lifelong friends, and her culture.

"She was very generous in giving me six years living in my world, so I think it's only fair that I give her at least another six of her living in hers.

"I love Spain and I think your lifestyle is fabulous. Also your ability to live transmitting joy and happiness. It is a beautiful place, the food is extraordinary and the people exude sensitivity and generosity, as well as an iron will to laugh and enjoy. So I'm looking forward to going there."
