The multi-level home features a media room, gym, two fireplaces, four bedrooms, six bathrooms and more than 4,600 square feet of living space. There's a swimming pool with a spa and a pool house.

Brown, 39, started with the Spice Girls in 1994 and half a dozen years later released her first solo album, “Hot.” She will be joining Simon Cowell as a judge on the British competition show “The X Factor.” She has judged 30 episodes of “America’s Got Talent.”

Belafonte produced "Mel B: It's a Scary World" (2010) for television. His film work includes "The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call -- New Orleans" (2009) and "Mutant Chronicles" (2008).

The deal took place outside of the Multiple Listing Service.
