Justin Bieber pays $6.5 million for Calabasas home


The price first-time homeowner Justin Bieber paid for his new digs in Calabasas has wended its way into the public record: $6.5 million.

Set on 1.3 acres in a gated community, the 10,000-square-foot main house is described as “transitional French” in style. Features include a high-ceiling foyer, library, a movie theater with stadium seating, a wet bar and a wine cellar. Just what every 18-year-old pop singer needs. Including a guesthouse, there are seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. A swimming pool and expansive lawns are among outdoor amenities.

Bieber, who catapulted to stardom through YouTube videos, has recorded the albums “My World 2.0,” “Under the Mistletoe” and “Believe” and sold more than 15 million copies. At the middle of last month he had more than 20 million Twitter followers.

The house, which was built in 2005, had been listed at $8.75 million. Among previous owners was Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife Nicole Murphy, who sold the property last year for $5.515 million.

Tomer Fridman and Isidora Fridman of Ewing Sotheby’s were the listing agents.
