Your Mama has known for quite some time now that pop music superstar Katy Perry has been house hunting in Los Angeles and that she's eager to get rid of Park Hill, the nearly three acre gated estate she and ex-husband Russell Brand bought for $6.5 million back in their happier matrimonial days (June, 2011) but never actually occupied. We even snitched such to the children in early February (2013).
So, it comes as no surprise then that celebrity gossip juggernaut TMZ reported this week that otherwise unidentified "real estate sources" told them that Miss Perry would liked to have quietly sold the 8,835 square foot 1920s Mediterranean in an off-market deal for close to eight million clams. Alas, despite being shopped around off market and toured by a handful of qualified buyers—including, it was tattled to Your Mama, to at least one famously real estate obsessed actor—the 7 bedroom and 9 bathroom residence remains a costly high maintenance albatross around Miss Perry's real estate neck.
The folks at TMZ went on to report that ex-Missus Brand is getting increasingly antsy and actually plans to foist the Laurel Canyon crib on the open market in two weeks and that the asking price will be in the "mid 7s." TMZ's snitch went on to say that Miss Perry might be willing to sell the property in the high six millions if someone would just offer it. One of Your Mama's better connected celebrity real estate canaries told us not too long ago she might even be willing to take even less, something closer to a break even point, but that's just some real estate rumor and gossip that you did not hear from Your Mama.
