Celebrity home front: Jennifer Aniston
It seems rom com queen Jennifer Aniston will not be moving back to her native New York, and has sold the two city apartments she bought there recently.
The spell living in New York was blighted by paparazzi intrusion, according to Aniston, who has since moved back to LA.
The former Friends star paid over $7m for the east coast properties, but has decided to move back to LA. And she has accepted a $6.5m offer from a mystery buyer, taking a loss on the Manhattan homes.
Miss Aniston is currently living in a 8,500 sq ft Bel Air Estate with her boyfriend Justin Theroux.
She had originally planned to create one cavernous home out of the two apartments, but she never settled at the address.
“Aniston outgrew the apartments, a one-bedroom penthouse and a one-bedroom on the 17th floor — that she had planned on combining,” the New York Post was told.
“She loved them, but her circumstances changed and the space was just wrong,” the insider said.
She told an Australian radio show: “We tried New York. It was a little rough with the paparazzi. It didn’t feel like the New York I grew up in and knew.”
Now the couple have moved into a $21m LA pad which has a vineyard, four-bedrooms, a garden and views of the Pacific.
Another star is offloading a recently bought house too — Tori Spelling.
Spelling and her family bought a Malibu home just five months ago, but her fourth pregnancy means it won’t have enough family space.
Spelling, who fell pregnant just one month after giving birth to her third child in October, says the new house just won’t be big enough. The property, which has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, is now on the market for $2.675m (£1.65m).
Sources close to the star said that the couple hadn’t planned on moving in so soon, but the 2,300 sq ft home was ‘just too small for a family of six’.
