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.
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.
