Justin Bieber, the beleaguered pop star, sold his house in a gated community in Calabasas for $7.2 million to reality TV personality Khloe Kardashian.
The location puts Kardashian in proximity to sister Kourtney Kardashian should either need to borrow a cup of sugar. Kourtney bought the nearby home of retired pro football player Keyshawn Johnson this spring.
Khloe Kardashian’s new house, built in 2005 and set on a 1.3 acres, was not listed for sale. Tax records show it has at least six bedrooms and 9,214 square feet of living space. That’s a move up from the 8,000-square-foot Tarzana digs she previously shared with former Laker Lamar Odom.
Earlier marketing materials for the house, which was once home to actor Eddie Murphy’s ex, Nicole Murphy, describe it as Spanish in style with hand-painted tiles, a courtyard, a 200-bottle wine cellar, six fireplaces, an elevator and two three-car garages. There’s a swimming pool with a spa, a barbecue and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom casita with a kitchen.
Bieber, 20, bought the property two years ago for $6.5 million.
After run-ins with the police this year in Miami and Calabasas, the pop star once again drew negative publicity this month when videos surfaced of him using racist slurs. He has issued an apology.
The teen idol has released an album annually for the last four years. Among his hits are “Boyfriend,” “Beauty and a Beat” and “As Long as You Love Me.”
