Hip Hop’s ultimate bad boy, Chris Brown, is selling his swank Hollywood Hills crib for $1.92 million.

Chris hasn’t been spending much time in the home as of late, since he’s been in a court-ordered residential rehab program. According to reports from CNN, the singer’s probation report states that he has an anger-management problem and drug-abuse issues. He’s been on felony probation since pleading guilty to beating up singer Rihanna on the eve of the Grammys in 2009, and he’s currently under increased legal scrutiny following an arrest in Washington in October.

Amid all his personal troubles, Brown is making changes by ridding himself of the hillside home he purchased on October 21, 2011 for $1,550,000.

The modern hillside home was designed by acclaimed architect Jay Vanos and tailored for high design, quality and Brown’s Hollywood lifestyle. A elevator from the street level leads up into a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, where spectacular custom LED site lighting and a salt water pool and spa greet you.

Soaring high ceilings, walls of glass and exotic stones throughout compliment the canyon setting, allowing total privacy while being just seconds away from the studios and all of Hollywood nightlife.

A true celebrity retreat, Brown’s home has a Boffi kitchen and baths, Dorn Bracht fixtures, a shower massage system, a green roof, entry/security system and Crestron home control of all systems.

When he was home and free to do as he pleased, Brown enjoyed the California lifestyle in this home, which also features spectacular indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, including fire pits, stone waterfalls and an outdoor projection screen.

His neighbors won’t be sad to see him go. He recently angered the entire block by painting a graffiti mural on the front of his home, which he claims is protected by his 1st amendment rights.

Property records show that Brown also owns a home in his Virginia hometown and a condo in West Hollywood that he purchased for $1.6 million in 2011 that’s currently for sale for $1.695 million.

    The youngest Jonas Brother is making big moves!

    21-year-old Nick Jonas, 1/3 of the now-defunct musical group The Jonas Brothers, has just splashed out $3.2 million on a secluded spanish-style compound above the Sunset Strip, as first reported by The Real Estalker.

    Set behind large gates on a private cul-de-sac, Jonas’ new home has panoramic views from Downtown to the ocean. Set on a promontory, this authentic Villa has both old world charm and every modern amenity. Recently renovated to capture seamless indoor/outdoor living, all public rooms open to the pool and  grounds. A dramatic living room with fireplace and spacious dining room are ideal for entertaining. The master suite has high ceilings and a wood burning fireplace, and an adjacent master bath includes a steam shower and a large walk-in closet. Features of Jonas’ new estate include a gourmet kitchen, family room, and state-of-the-art security. An outdoor fireplace with seating and full guest house make this the perfect home for the youngest Jonas.

    Nick Jonas bought this home from Mike Myer’s ex-wife, Robin Ruzan, who had been trying to sell the home for two years.

    “The Jonas Brothers” crushed fans across the world with the news that they were disbanding after many years of making music together. They are each pursing individual projects, both personally and professionally. Nick Jonas had a small role on “Smash,” and also appeared this fall on “Hawaii Five-O.” When he’s not working, he’s spending time with his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. Brother Kevin Jonas is expecting his first child (a girl!) with wife Danielle, and the duo are also selling their New Jersey mansion for $2.2 million. Joe Jonas hasn’t announced any major plans for the future.

      Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump is selling his rocking Hollywood view home for $2,275,000!

      Stump gained notoriety as the lead singer, guitarist and composer for the massively popular rock band Fall Out Boy, which also includes Ashlee Simpson’s ex-husband Pete Wentz. When Fall Out Boy went on hiatus a few years back, Stump did his own thing and released two critically-aclaimed solo albums and even produced albums for other artists, including Cobra Starship and Gym Class Heroes.

      In 2013, Fall Out Boy announced the end of their musical hiatus and released a brand new album that debuted at #1 on the charts, and quickly followed on to that album with a second release.

      With an incredible musical comeback and more hits, Stump may be celebrating his success by upgrading his digs! He just listed the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, 2,509 square foot home he bought on April 2, 2008 for $1,975,000.

      With views of the city, ocean, Lake Hollywood, vineyards and the iconic Hollywood sign, this renovated home with a custom, soundproofed recording studio is a fabulous private, gated enclave for any rockstar.

      The home features a sun-drenched open floor plan and chef’s stainless kitchen with bamboo cabinets, an entertainer’s island, French sliding doors, a stone-etched fireplace, custom corner study and a large outdoor area ideal for dining under the stars.  The floating stairs of exotic Tigerwood lead to a serene Master suite with a private balcony for stargazing. Walk-in closets, wood floors, and a beautiful master bath create the perfect retreat. The rest of the home includes 2 additional bedrooms, a second bath, custom glass gates, solar panels, a new metal roof, 2 car garage and security system.

        After moving out of her mansion due to stalkers and burglars, Rihanna’s former Pacific Palisades home is back on the market as a rental with a $65,000 a month price tag!

        The Barbados-born beauty moved into the $12 million dollar home in December 2012, and her Southern California paradise quickly became a nightmare. After just a few short months in the home, trespassers, stalkers and attempted burglars have all been arrested at or near the property, prompting RiRi to flee the urban oasis for her own safety. In the most extreme case, a 27-year-old man was arrested on the property after showing up multiple times, claiming to be her “future husband.”

        The globetrottering Grammy winner has since had ‘her people’ move her belonging out of the home and into another undisclosed location, freeing up her former home for new residents. Reports say she’s decamped to a penthouse in New York City. She also reportedly purchased a $22 million villa in her native Barbados earlier this year.

        Built in 2010, the estate is nestled in the Los Angeles hills and features a neutral-to-warm color scheme throughout, with sandy walls and dark wood and tile flooring from head to toe. The home exudes a strong modern-Caribbean influence, offering simple architecture and sleek finishes, with a slight twist. Reminiscent of a tropical villa, almost every room comes complete with walls opening to the backyard allowing for plenty of natural light and easy access to the pool and spa. A super-modern kitchen offers 14-foot ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and a full bar. In addition to the pool and spa, the outdoor entertaining area offers a 6,000-square-foot garden area with outdoor BBQ, bar, and sundeck.

        According to the listing, the current rate is a temporary reduction from the initial $100,000 a-month asking price.

        Material Girl Madonna Sells Beverly Hills Mansion For $20 Million!

        Her Madgesty has sold her massive castle in Beverly Hills!

        Madonna, the Queen of Pop, who publicly listed her Beverly  Hills estate for $22.5 million in January 2013, has snagged a mystery buyer who paid a reported $20 million.

        Before it came (and lingered on the market), Madonna’s posh pad had long been rumored to be a “pocket listing”–not officially on the MLS, but still for sale–for $28 million, but since the price wasn’t in ‘Vogue’ with buyers, Madonna was forced to try the public market at a lower price.

        After about 10 months on the market, Madonna has finally sold for $20 million – a nice profit of $8 million dollars more than the $12 million she paid in June 2003, when she bought the home from actress Sela Ward. ‘Take a Bow,’ Madonna – nice work!

        The whole time the home was on the market, only a single image showing the home’s ‘Borderline’ was available, so we never got to peep the interiors. We do know Madonna’s just-sold property starts with a 500-foot, gated, tree-lined drive that leads to an acre and a quarter of lushly landscaped grounds, offering total privacy for residents to ‘express themselves.’

        The recently remodeled house has all the finest details and amenities: nine bedrooms, two living/reception rooms, a two-story dining room, junior dining room, large kitchen with breakfast room/den, and a full size screening room and theater. As if that weren’t enough space to ‘Cherish,’ the property also has two offices, assistants offices, a gym, staff rooms, two guest houses, a north/south tennis court, and a resort-size pool. No detail was overlooked and no expense spared in maintaining the house meticulously. It’s clear, by taking one look at her former home, that Madonna is a ‘Material Girl.’

        Madonna is no property ‘Virgin,’ as she also has homes in New York and London.

          Kevin Jonas and his pregnant wife Danielle have listed their Denville, New Jersey home for $2.2 million, according to TMZ.

          The married duo are currently pregnant with their first child (a girl!), and according to reports, their current home in Denville, New Jersey is just a little too exposed for their liking. It was the central location for their E! reality show “Married to Jonas.” While gorgeous and grand, the home just isn’t private enough for Kevin and Dani and their impending arrival.

          Sources close to them say that the couple plans to throw a private event at the home to hopefully generate interest in the property and potentially snag a buyer. While they’ve been shown on their reality show contemplating a big purchase in Manhattan, reports say they’ve already purchased property close to their former home and intent to start building a new home.

          The home is isn’t currently listed on the MLS, but the listing agent’s website and property records show that the home is 4,788 square feet and has 5 bedrooms, 5,5 bathrooms, a wine cellar, movie theater and pool. They paid $1.19 million for the estate in January 2011.

            Months after decamping to the $11 million dollar Hidden Hills mansion she bought from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Jessica Simpson has finally sold her former home in Beverly Hills for $6.4 million.

            Listed by the former reality TV “Newlywed,” turned billion-dollar fashion designer for $7,995,000 in May 2013, the home finally found a buyer for about $1.5 million less than asking price. It’s still a tidy profit from the $5,275,000 she originally paid in December 2005.  Simpson purchased the 5-bedroom, 6 bathroom, 5,500 square-foot estate right after she announced to the world that she and husband Nick Lachey were divorcing.

            Simpson’s, fiance Eric Johnson and baby girl Maxwell had been living as one happy family in the home for the past few years, but with the new addition of a new baby boy, Ace Knute, the family of four was ready to sell the estate off and nest in their new Hidden Hills home.

            Built in 1991, the custom home is evocative of the stylish real estate found in the Hamptons and is located in one of the most private, guarded celebrity enclaves. Simpson tapped celebrity decorator Rachel Ashwell to do the home up in her trademark “Shabby Chic” style.

            The property is walled and gated, with a stone courtyard that leads to a koi pond. Inside, high ceilings punctuate the formal living room and dining room. A family-friendly, restaurant-style gourmet kitchen leads to the breakfast room then out to the stone courtyard. The media/family room opens out to the serene, private and secure park-like grounds and swimming pool.

            The home also has quite the Hollywood pedigree. Prior to Simpson and her family living here, Paul Hogan, Tom and Kathy Freston, Ellen DeGeneres, and Rick Yorn all called this gorgeous Beverly Hills property home.
