Selena Gomez’s mansion in California is being sold for a large amount of money, but it is not the cash that counts in this case. It is being reported that Gomez is selling her mansion because she is fearful over what has happened in her house. Not only did Selena have a stalker come after, she has also been calling 911 regularly in order to reporter potential intruders.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Justin Bieber recently talked about his first love as Selena Gomez’s boyfriend.
Despite being purchased only one and a half years ago, Selena Gomez’s mansion has seen its fair share of drama already. Literally days after she moved into her new house, Selena had a stalker named Juan Garcia show up. The 19-year-old man was seen lurking around the property trying to get a good look into the huge abode. When Gomez family members reported the suspicious character, police immediately showed up and dragged the man away.
When police arrested Selena Gomez’s stalker, Garcia admitted that he was in fact trying to get a good look at the singer. Due to the infraction, he was sentenced to spend 120 days in the Los Angeles County Jail. The judge also ordered the stalker to stay at least 150 feet away from Gomez at all times. If Garcia ever breaks these probation rules during the next two years, or violates any of the terms of his restraining order, he could end up spending even more time in jail.
Unfortunately, Selena Gomez’s house may be a source of trouble, but she is also a magnet for stalkers. Even before she bought the mansion, Gomez was forced to take a restraining order out on another man named Thomas Brodnicki, who freely claimed the legal protection was necessary.
“I believe that a restraining order should be issued against me to prevent me from trying to contact Selena Gomez. I do not wish to object to the restraining order against me because I know it is the only thing that will make me stay away from Selena,” he said in court documents.
TMZ reports that the stalker incidents are not the only reason Selena is planning on selling the mansion. Gomez has apparently called 911 to report an intruder on three separate instances. Also, it makes sense to dump the property for privacy issues, since it apparently is standing open to anyone who would like to stalk the singer.
“It’s the second home Selena bought that was targeted by stalkers. It’s surprising her current home is not tucked away in a gated community. It’s a safe bet her next purchase will be in a more secure location. It does make sense to sell now… Selena will be on tour for most of 2016.”
Selena Gomez’s net worth should get a small bump when she eventually does sell the mansion. Since beginning her singing, songwriting, and acting career in 2002, she has managed to accumulate around $20 million. Gomez apparently purchased the mansion for $3.7 million in 2014, so she will net a profit of around $800,000 (before taxes and realtor fees), since she has listed the 7,700 square foot estate for about $4.5 million.
According to E! Online, this is also not the first time Selena has sold one of her previous mansions. Despite being only 23-years-old, the singer had owned another mansion in Tarzana, which is located about 10 miles east of her current home. In 2014, Gomez sold the old mansion for $3.4 million to Iggy Azalea and Nick Young.
