Christina Aguilera has sold her Beverly Hills Estate for a reported $11.5 million, $2 million below her original asking price. The pop diva finalised the deal after the palatial digs languished on the market for over two years with a $13.5 million price tag. Christina purchased the home from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne in 2007 with ex-husband Jordan Bratman.
She listed the property upon the couple’s separation in 2010, refusing to officially lower its price until its recent sale. The 10,000-square foot Mediterranean palace boasts six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a beauty salon, a media room, a recording studio, a guesthouse and a pool complete with a water slide and grotto spa. The impressive construction was featured on hit MTV reality series The Osbournes before being purchased by the Dirrty singer.
The Beverly Hills abode’s deep-pocketed buyer remains anonymous. Meanwhile, Christina has moved into a recent acquisition in the tony gated community of Mulholland Estates. Apparently the Genie In A Bottle crooner was seeking even more space, as her new home is spread out over an expansive 11,000 square feet.
She purchased the property from billionaire and Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores for a cool $10 million.

Nicole Scherzinger is ‘torn’ about whether of not to make a return to the X Factor judging panel. While the singer was thought to be a ‘dead cert’ to make a comeback on the ITV talent show, it has now been revealed that Nicole has not yet officially decided either way. Nicole is hesitating because she has an incredibly busy few months ahead, including the release of her hotly-anticipated new album.
The source said: ‘Nicole just doesn’t know if she can do both. It really is all or nothing for Nicole – she wants to be able to give 100% to whatever she signs up for.
‘They’ve offered her a good deal but are still talking to her to work out if she can do both. She hasn’t said no yet because she loves the UK – she got an amazing reaction from the public and she has set up her home here in London.’ Nicole won herself millions of fans worldwide through her appearance on last year’s X Factor, with her enthusiasm and dedication leading to both of her acts, eventual winner James Arthur and runner-up Jahmene Douglas, making up the final two of the competition.
However, Nicole is aware that being on the show takes up a huge amount of time – the judges also spend time with their acts learning where they have come from and their stories so far as well as mentoring them for the live shows.
And as October also marks being the biggest month of the year for record sales, Nicole will have to decide where her priorities lie – as she is hoping to achieve the same success from her hit single Boomerang with the release of her as-yet-untitled album. But Nicole will have to make a decision in the near future as the live auditions for the X Factor kick off imminently.
The source added: ‘The future’s uncertain – and Nicole is concerned that it’s huge commitment to take both on.
‘She’s torn between the two and has to choose between one or the other – she loves both and she’s in an impossible situation.’ In addition, if Nicole decides not to sign up for another series of The X Factor, the likelihood is that she won’t continue to live in London – as she will no longer need a base in the capital. Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh are rumoured to be rejoining the show, but fellow judge Tulisa has reportedly been axed with former panellist Sharon Osbourne favourite to replace her.
