Dancer-singer-actress Jennifer Lopez may have taken a tumble during a performance of her new single "Louboutins" at the American Music Awards last month, but she's on terra-firm where the sale of her French country villa is concerned.
Update: An earlier version of this story showed a different sales price that appeared on the MLS Friday.
The Bel-Air property she and her singer husband, Marc Anthony, had listed more than a year ago at $8.5 million closed escrow this week. The sales price was $7.5 million, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
The walled and gated house, built in 1941, sits on three-quarters of an acre and has five fireplaces, hardwood and stone floors and a second-floor terrace looking out over the back lawn, according to MLS details. There are four bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms in 7,357 square feet.
The compound includes a detached guesthouse/studio, a swimming pool and pool house, Provencal gardens and pathways with arched trellises.
J.Lo, 40, started her career dancing as a Fly Girl on "In Living Color" (1990) and got her big acting break when she was cast to star in "Selena" (1997). Her movie credits include "Bordertown" (2006), "Monster-in-Law" (2005) and "Maid in Manhattan" (1997). She will star in the 2010 romantic comedy "The Back-Up Plan."
As a singer, the star has sold more than 48 million albums worldwide. Among her hits are "Jenny From the Block" and "Love Don't Cost a Thing." She killed some time waiting for the sale to close with a performance on the finale of "So You Think You Can Dance."
Salsa and pop singer Anthony, 41, won Latin Grammys in 1999 and 2005.
The pair bought the property in 2005 for $6.25 million, public records show.
