Avril Lavigne Buys Shanna Moakler's Mansion

by at . Comments

The Hollywood Gossip has learned that singer Avril Lavigne and her husband, Sum 41 frontman / wannabe tough guy Deryck Whibley, have bought a Bel-Air home for $9.5 million.

The previous owners? Shanna Moakler and Travis Barker.

Oh, if those walls could talk... they would say some ridiculously stupid things. Then go rant about it on their MySpace page and hook up with Paris Hilton.

According to the L.A. Times, Lavigne, 22, originally wanted to build a home but settled on the 12,000 square foot manse that Shanna Moakler and her wacko husband lived in while filming their MTV reality show, Meet the Barkers.

The three-story gated house has eight bedrooms and 10 1/2 bathrooms. Which is good, because it offers some privacy - not every house guest is gonna want to hear Avril Lavigne music echoing through their room.

Worst. Joke. Ever.

Built in Tuscan-style, the residence sits on one acre, has an elevator, an office, a state-of-the-art kitchen, a steam shower, a sauna, a pool, a spa and a 10-car garage.

Lavigne, who recently made headlines by talking smack about Britney Spears, is selling her current home for a paltry $6.2 million.

The Canadian-born singer and serial spitter's third album, The Best Damn Thing, is due out April 17. We're sure it's going to be stellar.
