Jessica Simpson buys Ozzy Osbourne's house
The pop star reportedly plans to turn Sharon Osbourne's massive walk-in closet into a nursery for her upcoming baby. The Osbournes sold at a loss.
After almost two years, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have finally sold their home in the Hidden Hills suburb of Los Angeles. The buyer was pop star Jessica Simpson.
Simpson paid $11.5 million for the Cape Cod-style home, less than the nearly $12.389 million the Osbournes paid for the home in 2007. The house had been listed for $12.999 million starting in June 2011.
Despite the Osbournes’ reputation for oddity, the house was featured in Architectural Digest and is not all what one might expect from the former front man of the band Black Sabbath. The house appears light and airy, with plenty of windows and lots of white and pastels. The 11,000-square-foot home is on 2.25 acres and has expansive views of the city and the mountains.

Celebrity designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, who created the eclectic décor, told AD the home was "very them. Easygoing but still opulent — with a little rock-star edge thrown in."
After they bought the home, the Osbournes did a major renovation, building enormous walk-in closets and his-and-her master baths. According to US Weekly, Simpson plans to turn Sharon’s closet into a nursery.
Simpson is expecting her second child. She and Eric Johnson, who have a 9-month-old daughter, plan to be married at the home, according to media reports.
The sale was delayed after a fire started by a candle in January did some damage. No word on where the Osbournes plan to live. The Osbournes sold their Malibu home about a year ago for $7.95 million.
Singer Cristina Aguilera bought the house where “The Osbournes” reality TV show was made in 2007 and finally sold it in February after two years on the market. Last asking price was $13.5 million
Poor Jessica was seen running screaming from the house after asking to be shown the half-bath downstairs.
Ozzy was close behind yelling, "Bath? Wait! I thought you said bat!"
Someone, you seem like a very angry person. There's a pill for that.
They wrote the house off as a business expense for he show, you the Idiots of California footed the bill for the Taxes , roflmao ... Can't fix stupid can you left coast losers ..
Sheena Easton had that kinda influence on the housing market in southern California ? !
Sheena please move to my neighborhood !!! I would love it if my home value could go up from 200,000 to 2,000,000 because you bought the place next door. I would even buy your last album
YOU SHARON AND OZZY GLAD YOU SOLD YOUR HOME BUT SORRY YOU TOOK A LOSS ON IT. BUT JESSICA WILL ENJOY IT I'M SURE. SHARON I ENJOY YOUR SHOW, KEEP UP THE GOOD STUFF.
OMG, Jessica Simpleton should have paid about $7 million for this place ! !
Even at 11.5 million for a house that was worth $12.389 million in 2007 , Simpson Overpaid . . . right ?
Hello, Teresa , did I just come up with another article angle you could have taken , rather than regurgitate what you had already possibly plaguerized ?. .
Please,Teresa, explain in great real estate detail which you have been gaining since you were Daddy's bag man at age 10 , exactly what happened her.
Don't just use someone else's data to put a fluff piece together for a Saturday internet piece-use your effin brain !!!
Or, better yet, what about the idea the OZ's just used the house for the show and didn' really want people to see what their "real house" looked like ?
Is that a possibiility, Teresa ?
I don't need a fancy place like that. I'm satisfied with a one-bedroom ranch style apartment. That's all I need.
How about the fact the Oz's either had :
Their mortgages or their taxes paid , or were given a healthy stipend for their use of it while in the show, which more than likely netted them a very large gain , even after "selling at a loss" ?
NO INFO, NO IMAGINATION OR EVENT THE SCENT OF A THOUGHT HERE BY THE "AUTHOR". . .
