Rumor Has It: Adele on L.A. House Hunt

An unsubstantiated celebrity real estate rumor has long held that British singer Adele might like to relocate from oft-chilly England to almost-always-sunny Los Angeles, and this property gossip hears there may nowadays be some truth to the years of speculation. According to our sources, who include Yolanda Yakketyyak and Anita Tellsumbahdee, the Oscar-winning and Grammy-hoovering chanteuse — she has one of the former and 10 of the latter — has been on an exhaustive house hunt over the past six or so months, from Malibu to Los Feliz, and is willing to spend well into eight figures to satisfy her California real estate dreamin’. So the scuttlebutt goes, the publicity-eschewing powerhouse singer has peeped at a plethora of high-priced properties, including a 10,000-plus square-foot Pacific Palisades manse that was, in the end, sold for not quite $10.5 million to “Game of Thrones” producer Guymon Casady. We also heard she had a look-see at fellow Brit Jason Statham’s residence in the celeb-stocked Outpost Estates ’hood, currently in escrow with a $9 million asking price; and earlier this year, there where whispers and reports she made an offer for an ocean-view contemporary in a gated enclave in Malibu. Maybe she did, but she did not buy the house, which remains available at just under $7 million.

Adele is certainly no stranger to L.A. living, and a couple of years ago she leased a posh Beverly Hills estate with a seven bedroom mansion, lighted tennis court, vintage bowling alley in the basement and an impressive pedigree: Previous owners and/or occupants include Bert Lahr, Betty Grable, Paul McCartney and Ozzy Osbourne. Back in the U.K., where local property gossips say she owns one and possibly two townhouses in London’s high-nosed Notting Hill, the always refreshingly candid songbird is said to keep a seafront retreat near Brighton Beach that she allegedly acquired in 2012 for about $3.9 million.
