Avril Lavigne sells Bel Air mansion for USD 8.5 million
Pop star Avril Lavigne has reportedly sold her Bel Air mansion she shared with her former husband Deryck Whibley for USD 8.5 million.
The 'Complicated' singer, who bought the palatial property in 2006, sold the 12,184 square-foot, eight bedroom, ten bathroom home to Los Angeles Clippers basketball star Chris Paul, reported TMZ Online.
The home features a two-storey foyer, dual offices, a ten-car garage, a wine cellar, large gym with bath and sauna, laundry and staff quarters and a private courtyard. Lavigne, 27, and Whibley, 31, split in 2010 after four years of marriage but despite their break-up, she insists the pair will always be very close.
"I have a lot of respect for him as an artist. He's one of the most talented people I know. He did an awesome job on my album. We're very good friends. He's family to me. We both respect and care for each other very much. We're in a great place," Lavigne said.
The singer is currently dating reality TV star Brody Jenner.
