Just about the only flashy person not to buy a Miami showplace is the Sultan of Brunei. And contrary to rumor, the multibillionaire Sultan isn't adding Paris to his extensive list of second residences yet, either. It has been reported -- here and elsewhere -- that the Sultan purchased the $100 million hotel particulier on the Rue de Varenne, next door to the Rodin Museum, which belonged to the Earl of Granard.

"While certain negotiations are conducted with a number of potential buyers, no contract has been signed."
