The couple’s property purchase comes after the sale of their $4.2million property fell through on the reality show last year.

Cyber security expert Emese Fajk had purchased the couple’s Palm Springs-inspired home at auction in November.

She failed to pay up and was later accused of being an ‘international conwoman’ with a history of faking bank slips.
