The Good People of Calabasas can rest easy: Justin Bieber is officially leaving the neighborhood.
Whether or not his replacement is actually an improvement, however, is still up for debate.
A newly-single Khloe Kardashian has purchased the singer’s home in the (once) quiet enclave of The Oaks, Us Weekly said Thursday. This news comes on the heels of news of the sale of Khloe and estranged husband Lamar Odom’s Tarzana mansion to Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco and her new husband, pro tennis player Ryan Sweeting.
It’s a scenario that should make for a good game of Six Degrees of Separation.
Bieber purchased the home in 2012. The crooner quietly put the pad on the market after several highly-publicized run-ins with his neighbors — including a host of loud parties and the now infamous “egg-gate,” which led to a raid on Bieber’s property.
Calabasas mayor Fred Gaines weighed in on the matter in an interview with The Los Angeles Times in January:
“The fact that a talented international musician like Mr. Bieber chooses to live in Calabasas is certainly a feather in our cap and a tribute to our safe and beautiful community. [But] the peace and privacy of our residents is the city’s top priority. We have unfortunately had a number of breaches of the peace related to Mr. Bieber and his residence, and the sheriff has acted appropriately in addressing those incidents.”
Not surprisingly, JB’s since set his sights on the Southern mecca of Atlanta.
One of Bieber’s former neighbors, ex-NFL star Keyshawn Johnson, also recently unloaded his home to none other than Khloe’s older sister, Kourtney.
