Billie Joe Armstrong has listed his California home for $1.895 million.

The Green Day frontman and his wife purchased the Newport Beach cottage in 2006 and completely rebuilt it, RadarOnline reports.

The two-story coastal home is complete with a white picket fence and features three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a livingroom fireplace and private patio.

The listing comes after Billie's outburst at a Las Vegas show in September, when the rocker smashed his guitar during a foul-mouthed rant onstage.

He announced he was seeking help for substance abuse shortly after the incident.

Green Day - which consists of singer Billie, bassist Mike Dirnt, drummer Tré Cool and guitarist Jason White - had to postpone all commitments through March 2013.

The band had been promoting three new albums during their world tour.

The hectic schedule is thought to have contributed to Billie Joe's breakdown and Mike says he and his bandmates are standing by the rocker.

"I know that my friend's life is in danger and that's all I care about," he told rock magazine Kerrang! in October.

"We're brothers-in-arms waiting for Billie to return healthy, but we're not going to force anything," he said.

More money for luxuries will become available. You may want to keep your good fortune a secret. Friends and relatives who are down on their luck could be resentful. Take this opportunity to go shopping for clothes, furniture and artwork. Go ahead and spend more money than usual. You've earned some indulgences. If you're looking for work, you could find it at a government agency, university or hospital. Being employed by a big bureaucracy will have unexpected benefits.More
