    Default Selena Gomez Buys Tom Petty’s Former Encino Mansion

    SELLER: Randy Spendlove
    LOCATION: Encino, Los Angeles, Calif.
    PRICE: $4.9 million
    SIZE: 11,483 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms

    With glowing reviews and a third consecutive #1 album under her belt, child actor-turned-international pop music and social media superstar Selena Gomez — she has 172 million followers on Instagram alone — has seen fit to considerably upsize her residential circumstances. This time, the frequently house-hopping “Rare” crooner has completed the $4.9 million purchase of a bonafide mansion tucked deep into the proverbial heart of Encino, out in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley.
    Completed in 1989, the plus-sized house has an intriguing, only-in-L.A. sort of history. It was originally custom-built by the late rocker Tom Petty and his first wife, Jane Benyo, after an arsonist-set fire destroyed the Tudor-style mansion that formerly lay on the .87-acre property.

    Same and same to both of you. I'm very disappointed. This is not what I was expecting at all. I hope it was at least more fun looking when he lived in it.

    I really hate the part with the fireplace where you come down the stairs and there's another railing. Are you supposed to just stand there and gaze into the fire? It's like a stairway to hell, literally.

    According to Business Insider:

    Petty's ex-wife was given the home in their 1996 divorce, and she unsuccessfully tried to sell it in 2013. In 2015, J.P. Morgan foreclosed on the property, then sold it for $2.575 million in 2017. The home was refurbished, then sold for just under $5 million to its current owner Randy Spendlove, the president of Motion Picture Music at Paramount Pictures. (who now sold it to Gomez)

    I think the thread title needs to be amended to: Selena Gomez Buys Mansion Tom Petty Hadn't Set Foot in in Over 24 years and would not Recognize Even if it Landed on Him Wizard-of-Oz Style

    Yeah, don't taint Tom Petty with this bs. That place has history Selena could only dream of and I'm sure she'll IG it to death.

    I'm no real estate expert or millionaire, but isn't $2.575 million in 2017 a real steal of a deal?

    Did the ex wife mortgage it or something then lose it?

    It's so very generic and lacking any personality.

    Who knows. She had the house for almost 20 years post-divorce and then just let the bank take it? I'm sure she got a good divorce settlement, they were married young before he ever got a record deal, and were together 20+ years. From what I read, she even got co-ownership of his early songs. I also read that she had mental and drug issues, so again, who knows. His daughters seem kinda nutty too.
