According to gossip juggernaut, TMZ, Selena Gomez of Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place fame and also being the boyfriend of Justin Bieber for a short period of time has just purchased a Calabasas mansion which was first reported on March 29, 2014. 

Based on the picture revealed at TMZ, the home measures 5 Beds/6 Baths on 7,229 sqft on a total lot size of 3.15 acres built in 2004. The home is in a gated community literally next door to Hidden Hills. The shape of the lot is rather unique which looks like a long inverted boot that stretches from the Hidden Hills fences to to the entrance of the gated community. Another interesting feature of the lot is the open land next door with a driveway leading to nothing that looks like it was once being prepped for development so maybe there is future development potential for Gomez. 

This home was last purchased on August 16, 2004 as a new home for $2,920,000 and according to TMZ was sold to Selena Gomez for $3 million even though the property records do not reflect any transaction at the time of writing this blog so we will keep a look out to confirm TMZ's story who are typically accurate in their reporting. The home was previously owned by a financial type who goes by the name of Scott Kotick who was one of the founders of The Alliant Company

Shortly after TMZ published their story, a Gomez stalker wasted no time visiting Gomez's new home and knocked on the front door attempting to see Gomez which didnt work out. So the stalker broke into the guest home until he was caught by the sheriff's deputies. So that must be a record for celebrity trespassing and I guess it doesnt matter if you live in a gated community.

Prior to the newly acquired Calabasas home, Gomez was living in a Tarzana ranch home measuring 5 Beds/5 Baths on 4,650 sqft on a total lot size of close to 1 acre built in 1956. Gomez purchased this home for $2.9 million on August 2012 supposedly from Jonah Hill who flipped the home after acquiring it on July 14, 2011 for $2,175,000. However, a quick review of the property records does not show any transactions taking place after 2011 so its possible that Jonah Hill never owned this home and it was originally purchased by Gomez. Something tells me this home will be popping up on the market in the near future. On a side note for architectural buffs, this home is located across from the Dr. A.E. Abdun-Nur Residence designed by Paul Williams. You can read more about that home here and here

Prior to the Tarzana home, Gomez was living in an Encino rental (shown above) that was sold for $3.5 million on December 21, 2012 and was known as the Lazy Creek Ranch. You can read more about that home here

Is it a coincidence that Gomez moved to Calabasas after Bieber sold his Calabasas mansion to Khloe Kardashian and moved to Atlanta?
