"Just The Way You Are" singer Bruno Mars has picked up a 9,000 square-foot home in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles, Variety reports -- for more than a million under its original asking price.

What's even yummier about the real estate deal is that the seller reportedly is Elvira Kudryashova, daughter of a former Kazakhstan minister who is being sued in California federal court for allegedly defrauding the Kazakh city of Almaty of at least $300 million and laundering ill-gotten gains through -- among other things -- lavish Los Angeles real estate deals.

Kudryashova paid $5.7 million for the house in 2013, then put it back on the market less than a year later for about $7.8 million, according to Zillow. The price eventually dropped to $6.8 million, and Mars scooped it up for $6.5 million.

Mars' new digs are located on two acres in Fryman Canyon, also home to George Clooney. The seven-bedroom, eight-bath home features a separate children's wing with two en suite bedrooms plus a great room with kitchen. Other features include:
  • steam baths and dry saunas.
  • coffee bar.
  • infinity pool and heated cabana.
  • children's playground.
  • wet bar and wine cellar.
