Renowned Hollywood Star Arrives in Australia by Private Jet

A top-earning Hollywood actor was seen arriving in Australia aboard his private jet, where filming for his latest movie is currently underway.

Mark Wahlberg has come back to Australia to resume shooting his most recent film.

The American actor, aged 52, was photographed arriving at Sydney Airport over the weekend on his private jet. He took the time to greet fans outside the terminal and posed for selfies with them.

Wahlberg, who in 2017 was named Hollywood’s highest paid actor, has been travelling back and forth between the US and Australia, with his upcoming crime film Play Dirty shooting at locations across New South Wales over the next few months.

Play Dirty features a talented cast including LaKeith Stanfield, Rosa Salazar, and Dermot Mulroney as co-stars alongside Mark Wahlberg.

Reports indicate that Wahlberg has established temporary residence at a $100 million waterfront mansion in Sydney's Point Piper, known as Australia's wealthiest postcode.

Mark Wahlberg's return to Sydney comes shortly after news emerged that he is being sued by British football legend David Beckham over a failed fitness brand deal.

According to The Sun, Beckham's company, DB Ventures Ltd, alleged that Mark Wahlberg "duped" him into collaborating with F45.

At the age of 48, Beckham agreed to become the global ambassador for the firm when he moved to LA, where he developed a friendship with Wahlberg.

He is also suing the actor's firm, Mark Wahlberg Investment Group (MWIG), and the gym group F45's founders, Adam Gilchrist and Rob Deutsch, alleging that he lost more than $16.4 million due to withheld stocks that were promised to him until after share prices had plummeted.

Wahlberg and his co-defendants have refuted the allegations of "fraudulent conduct" as baseless and have requested a judge to dismiss the lawsuit.

F45 was founded in Sydney's Paddington, where its first gym was opened by Adam Gilchrist (not the cricketer) and Rob Deutsch in 2012, before expanding into the US in 2015.

In 2019, Wahlberg's investment firm, along with another investor named FOD Capital, purchased a minority stake in the business.
