Former NFL star wide receiver and current ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson is selling his sprawling Calabasas, CA estate for $8,495,000 - and he’s getting aggressive with the price chops to get away from his neighbor – none other than pop megastar Justin Bieber.
Keyshawn definitely isn’t a “Bielber” and actually has a much-publicized feud with Justin, who peeds uncontrollably in his white Ferrari through their residential neighborhood while young children play in the streets.
Johnson is sick and tired of living near Bieber, so he’s chopping the price of the home to move the sale along. Originally listed and then delisted in 2011, Johnson’s home popped back onto the market for December 2012 for $10.5 million. As Johnson’s issues with Bieber started to escalate, the asking price on his home started to drop. By February 2013, he’d chopped another $1.6 million off asking, but still couldn’t find a buyer. With his unruly neighbor continuing to cause him grief, Johnson decided to reduce the price yet again – slicing $400k off – bringing the home to its current asking price of $8.495 million.
Unruly pop star neighbor aside, Johnson’s house is a custom gem in the celebrity-infested Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas. Nestled inside the gated “Estates at the Oaks” community, Johnson’s for-sale home sits on a huge 1.86 acre lot that boasts views and privacy. Inside, 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms are also joined by a chef’s kitchen, game room, spa, sauna, elevator and theater.
The grounds of the estate include covered patios with an outdoor fireplace, sunken basketball/sports court, a pool with spa and expansive rolling lawns.
Don’t mind living near the Biebs? Go ahead and put Johnson out of his misery and make an offer!
Marc and Rory Shevin of Prudential hold the listing.

Discovering and managing Justin Bieber

Welcome to the house that Bieber built.
Scooter Braun, the young and massively successful impresario credited with discovering Justin Bieber on YouTube and introducing the world to “Bieber Fever,” is living large in an incredible Los Angeles estate. The home recently came to our attention via numerous glowing articles about Braun and his impressive journey to become one of the most successful talent managers of the current era. In May of this year, Forbes called Braun “Bieber’s Business Brain” and described how he hustles and makes musical magic happen from his Hollywood Hills estate. In an in-depth feature in the incomparable “The New Yorker” magazine, Braun was dubbed ”The Mogul Who Made Just Bieber” and it was noted ”the home is the center of operations for Braun’s blossoming mini-moguldom.”
The property that each of these reports are referring to is a large, modern 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom bachelor pad with walls of windows overlooking Los Angeles that Braun bought late last summer for $5.7 million from Kevin Lee Washington, an under-the-radar inventor.
As “The New Yorker” describes, “to get to the front door, you walk on slate stepping stones through a koi pond.” As you can see in the listing photos from 2011, the estate is big and bold. Braun also told the reporter that he wasn’t going to stop there: he’s buying the house next door to tear it down and put in a basketball court. That’s quite the compound – and the perfect location to launch and manage the careers of music’s current and upcoming megastars!
Before Braun bought the home, it was marketed as an “exciting architectural with enormous scale.” As any home must be in Los Angeles, Braun’s pad is perfect for indoor/outdoor living and grand entertaining. Naturally light and bright, the house is both stylish and sophisticated. It boasts a 22 foot entryway, great art walls and endless glass that showcases the massive views across Los Angeles. Just minutes up Doheny, Braun’s pad possesses a rare flat backyard and is punctuated by an infinity pool & spa, outdoor shower, cabana with plasma TV and fire pit, kitchen and BBQ.
Now that’s something to sing about.

UPADATE: Although The Daily Mail had initially stated Justin Bieber had settled on this property for his next home, TMZ is reporting Bieber’s camp is saying he has NOT put an offer on the home and had merely toured it. He is still on the house hunt for a home somewhere in LA. Good luck, J. Biebs!
What does mega pop star Justin Bieber get himself for his 18-year-old birthday? One might say a flashy hundred thousand dollar sports car; however, if you’re Justin you have Usher and an awesome manager who already surprised you on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with one. So what could top that? How about a $10.8 million dollar estate previously rented by Ashton Kutcher? Those new lavish wheels do need a lavish new home!
According to The Daily Mail, Bieber reportedly purchased this $10.8 million dollar Hollywood Hills mansion, currently rented for $50,000 by Ashton Kucher following his split from Demi Moore, and is ready to make it his own. Rumors have circulated that Bieber is turning the bachelor pad into a “love nest” for him and girlfriend Selena Gomez. As we’re unsure if the couple will actually move in together, we’re confident the couple would spend plenty of time hanging out in this lovely state-of-the art dream home.
The three story, 5-bedroom, 8-bath estate comes fully equipped with a uniquely designed gourmet kitchen, private theater, bar area, stunning infinity pool, personal gym and massage room. Perched in the Hollywood Hills, the home overlooks Lake Hollywood with fully retractable walls of glass and features a floating dining room area that opens to stunning views. The striking master suite boasts ample use of glass and wood, magnificent views and a spa-like master bath. A variety of outdoor spaces include enclosed gardens, outdoor rooms leading to the infinity pool, cantilevered decks and an open sky terrace.
