So much for break-up rumors! Avril and Brody were out to dinner at Koi Restaurant last night, along with Matt and Amie. Avril was decked out head to toe in the 2012 Abbey Dawn collection, and sporting some electric blue highlights! Avril embarks on the Asian leg of The Black Star tour in Tokyo on February 4. Thanks Avrilsmusic for the pictures.
Avril Lavigne has plenty of reasons to smile this week. Besides reconciling with boyfriend Brody Jenner after hitting a rough patch in their relationship, the singer has also finally sold the Los Angeles mansion she once shared with ex-husband Deryck Whibley.
The Mediterranean-style villa, which Avril and Deryck purchased back in 2006, is located in the ultra-exclusive gated community of Bel Air Crest -- no wonder the former couple was able to get $8.5 million for their former home. But who exactly had that much dough to shell out for the house? That would be Los Angeles Clipper star Chris Paul, according to gossip site TMZ.
Paul will actually be the latest in a long line of celebrities to have lived in the mansion. Before Avril and Deryck purchased the place, it was home to Blink 182's Travis Barker and his ex-wife, Shanna Moakler. The two even filmed their short-lived MTV reality series, 'Meet the Barkers' in the house!
So what does $8.5 million get you in Bel Air? 12,184 square-feet of pure opulence! The mansion features eight bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a ten-car garage, wine cellar, and a gourmet kitchen. And oh yeah, the master bedroom also has it's own kitchenette ... because sometimes, you just gotta make yourself a grilled cheese in the middle of the night!
Now that Avril has unloaded her pricey pad, she's free to venture out and explore new real estate possibilities. Could the singer take the plunge and buy a house with her on-again beau Brody Jenner? As PEOPLE magazine reported earlier this week (Jan. 24), the couple is back together and more in love than ever! "They were kissing and cuddling and were very affectionate," a source tells the publication. Time will tell with these two!
Avril tweeted this picture of her new hair, for a recent Abbey Dawn shoot! No word on if it is permanent, or just temporary for the photo shoot, but I love it! The best color choices by far! Good job Gabriel!
Almost a month into 2012, and we finally have our first paparazzi shots of Avril. She was spotted with brother Matt arriving with Starbucks and some hair extentions to the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Saturday. Brody is not photographed, but recent reports say that they were getting cozy at the Culina restaurant at the hotel.
