    Fall Out Boy Bassist Pete Wentz has just sold his rocking pad in Studio City, CA, according to public records.

    Ashlee Simpson’s ex-husband is currently dating model Megan Kamper, and the two were are expecting a baby in the near future. The ‘Fall Out’ from the pregnancy announcement? Time to move!

    With a little one on the way, and a five-year-old son with Simpson, Wentz needed to a bigger home base, so he sold his Studio City abode just two short years after moving in.

    Wentz purchased the place on April 13, 2012 for $1,050,000. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, nearly 2,000 square-foot home is situated in the foothills amongst a forest of tall trees, waterfalls and exotic plantings. The property has been lovingly maintained and enhanced over the years and the interiors are filled with designer touches. The open-plan living, dining and kitchen have a wood burning fireplace and a wall of French doors open to a grand, Wisteria covered veranda. The convertible third bedroom or den also open up to the lush outdoor area. Upstairs is the master suite, office and guest bedroom and third bath. The custom baths feature vessel sinks, glass tiles, stone and custom cabinetry.

    Outside, lush grounds surround the house and meandering pathways take you to a tree shaded spa, Japanese tea house, children’s play house, waterfalls and architectural koi pond. The separate guest quarters and bath complete this amazing property. Hardwood floors, recessed interior lighting, extensive outdoor lighting, security cameras, built-in speakers and music are just a few of the many features that made this a great nest for Wentz for the last two years.

    When Wentz was still married to Simpson, the two lived in a pricey place in Beverly Hills.

    Thomans Atamain represented Wentz and Gregory Zmrukhtyan repped the sellers. Both work for Dilbeck Real Estate.

      Time to “Let It Go.”

      In the midst of their yet-to-be-finalized divorce, Broadway superstar Idina Menzel and her actor hubby, Taye Diggs, are selling the Studio City home they’ve shared since 2010.

      Originally purchased for $2,090,000, the busted-up couple are asking $2,995,000 for the 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom digs they lived happily(?) in for years.

      An ideal family home, the Diggs/Menzel property is a traditional-style home set privately at the end of a country lane.

      With an open floor plan and a dramatic two-story foyer that perfectly suits the Broadway diva, the main level boasts a chefs kitchen, vast living and dining areas for entertaining or raising a large family, an expansive master suite, and three additional bedrooms.

      In happier times, Taye and Idina retreated to an upstairs area with a private office and bedroom suite with vaulted ceilings and wood floors.

      Outside, a sweeping outdoor yard augments the home, with a large pool, rolling lawns, patios and a treehouse.

        $1,041,409

        Newly ‘out’ actress Ellen Page just sold her modest Studio City digs after snapping up Venus William’s former home in the Hollywood Hills for $1.701 million.

        With the purchase of Williams’ home, Page no longer needed the 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home she purchased back in 2011 for $885,000. She was asking $1,050,000 and sold for just below that: $1,041,409.

        Perched in a prime Studio City Hills location on a privacy-friendly dead-end street, Page’s just-sold bungalow is a rare turn-key Cape Cod Traditional Home.

        The sunny home features beamed ceilings, a brick fireplace, hardwood floors and multi-door access to a pool and outdoor dining area.

        A fully remodeled kitchen has cook’s appliances and a breakfast nook.

        Ellen’s former master suite has a redone bath, generous walk-in closet, and direct access to yard and pool.

          $1,250,000

          ‘Hunger Games’ hunk Josh Hutcherson has just snapped a new spread, paying $1.25 million for a gorgeous East Coast traditional in the Silver Trangle area of Studio City.

          The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom property was extensively remodeled in 2011. Now, the swank home features dark wood floors, a vaulted beam ceiling, and a formal dining room with fireplace, overlooking a charming brick patio. Oh, la la.

          The cook’s kitchen has an uber-popular farmhouse-style sink, Carrara marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and a center island.

          Small but mighty at just 1,506 square feet, the home has a master suite with two large closers and a master bedroom with additional Cararra marble counter tops, dual sinks and a stunning claw-foot tub.

          Outside, the landscaped and terraced yard includes a sparkling blue swimming pool and views of the hillside.

          This is an interesting purchase for the Hutcherson, since its not your typical celeb buy – it’s not gated and it sits directly on the street, offering little-to-no privacy to the Hunger Games star. It’s also a majorly different purchase from the super-private “tree house” home he bought in May 2012 for $2.5 million. That home is gated, tucked away in the hills and steeped in serious celeb history. Former owners included serial home buyer Ellen Degeneres and Michelle Williams and the late Heath Ledger. This new buy is likely to be an investment or for a family member.

          Lori Shelton of John Aaroe Group repped the seller, and Deedee Howard of The Agency was Hutcherson’s agent.

              Actress Melissa Joan Hart is proving that stars are “just like us” – they want a short commute!

              The  actress just spent $949,000 on a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home across the street from where she films her TV show “Melissa & Joey.” Instead of battling Los Angeles‘ notoriously brutal traffic, the actress just needs to step out her front door and cross the street to get to work.

              Location, location, location!

              While the home is not typical celebrity digs (aka a giant, glamorous mansion), Hart’s new home has space inside and out, remodeled bathrooms, a large den, high ceilings, a large front yard, a cozy rear patio and seclusion from the street.

              The married mother of three boys also owns two additional homes, one near Lake Tahoe, and the other in Westport, Connecticut. In the past, she’s owned massive estates around Los Angeles.

              For this sale, Sigifredo Verano of Re/Max Town Center represented the seller, and Matt Epstein of Berkshire Hathaway HomeService represented Melissa Joan Hart.

                    Actor Jackson Rathbone, best known for his role as vampire Jasper Hale in The Twilight Saga, has just dropped $1.2 million on a family-friendly home in Studio City with a recording studio! Rathbone found a home that’s the best of both worlds for his life as an actor, musician and dad. He and girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi welcomed a son in 2012, and when Rathbone is not acting, he’s making music or touring with his band, 100 Monkeys.

                    Property records show that Rathbone closed on the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2,500 square foot Studio City home on August 7, 2013 and the seller was Erez Eisen from the band Infected Mushroom.

                    Rathbone’s new home sits behind gates on a large 10,000 square foot lot and has a great floor plan. The property’s highlights include a tropical-feeling pool, outdoor dining space, and a recently built professional recording studio that includes the voice booth. Inside the home, beautiful hardwood floors run throughout, french windows are in each of the three bedrooms, and a sizable den could be converted to a 4th bedroom.

                    Rathbone sold his former home at 2651 La Cuesta Dr. on July 22, 2013 for $1,750,000.
