Christina Aguilera Finally Sells Beverly Hills Home After 2 Years On the Market
By Erika Riggs
When Christina Aguilera redecorated her home, she went big with bold colors -- from bright green in the library to black and yellow in the kitchen -- whimsical furnishings and over-the-top glam. But what may have attracted the pop diva may not have appealed to buyers across the board. Aguilera's home -- for which the listing has now been taken down -- stayed on the housing market for two years, before "pending" showed up on the listing over the weekend. (AOL Real Estate called it a couple weeks ago: When Aguilera's ex-husband, Jordan Bratman, suddenly moved the rest of his things out of the house, we just had a feeling something was up.)
According to property records, Aguilera and former husband Jordan Bratman purchased the home from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne in 2007 for $11.5 million. The home was previously the setting for MTV reality show "The Osbournes." When Aguilera and Bratman filed for divorce, the home hit the market in early 2011 for $13.5 million. Usually when a home has been on the market for more than a year, the listing price gets a chop or two. Not in the case of Aguilera's colorful home: The price remained steady at $13.5 million. However, when sale records are released, it may be revealed that the buyer was able to talk the price down a few notches.

The price of $13 million or so is relatively fair for a 10,000-square-foot celebrity estate in Beverly Hills. Aguilera's Mediterranean-style estate is a six-bedroom, nine-bath property situated on a gated, half-acre-plus lot. Beyond the creative decor, the home has high ceilings, a grand foyer and staircase, a master suite with his-and-her baths and closets, a fireplace and lounge area. Other celeb-worthy amenities include a gym, game room, gift-wrapping area, movie room and beauty salon. The grounds feature a detached guesthouse with a recording studio, swimming pool with a water slide, grotto and barbecue area.
