Demi Lovato’s Home: The Newest “X Factor” Judge’s $2.25 Million Gift to Her Family:The “X Factor US” has had a rough beginning. Simon Cowell’s super-mega-awesome-hit in the UK, ran into a slightly less enthusiastic response in the US, where it came up against the quite saturated US singing competition market, with “The Voice”, “The Sing-Off”, “America’s Got Talent”, and, of course, “American Idol”, all vying for popularity. Mr. Cowell shelled out a lot of money, and put his reputation on the line, in an effort to make his show the best. While it was a success, it was not a breakout hit, and his knee-jerk response was to fire, well, just about everybody. This included much-loved judge, Paula Abdul, and not-so-loved judge, Nicole Scherzinger. His chosen replacements have everyone scratching their heads. He chose, talented, but emotionally and mentally unstable, singer/dancer, Britney Spears, and talented, but emotionally and mentally unstable, singer/actress, Demi Lovato. They don’t seem like the most wise choices for a program that airs live twice a week, so it will be interesting to see whether his gamble pays off. Demi Lovato, who appeared for a long time to be one of the few Disney starlets who was going to be okay, checked herself into rehab for substance abuse and “self-harm” issues in 2010. People who had been rooting for her to buck the trend of Disney stars who imploded, were sorely disappointed to hear that she had buckled under the pressure. Prior to falling apart, however, she used some of her wealth to buy her family a lovely new home in Sherman Oaks, California. The 4,053 square foot, four-bedroom, four and a half bath home cost her $2.25 million. She purchased the property just after her eighteenth birthday, and just before she chose to leave the house and head for rehab. The three-storey home contains a master suite with its own spa-like bathroom, fireplace, multiple walk-in closets, kitchenette, and private covered terrace. There is a secondary smaller suite, with its own bathroom, as well as two more standard bedrooms. Hardwood floors and sunlight abound. The house also contains a massive living room with fireplace, a media room, an office, a sauna, a large L-shaped kitchen with breakfast nook, a backyard that includes a waterfall and a pool with a slide, and a fountain in the front yard. Ms. Lovato lives in the attached guest cottage. Judging by this opulent purchase for her family, it is clear that Ms. Lovato is generous, so hopefully her new job, and the increased spotlight, won’t change her for the worse.

The home is said to have 5,064 square feet of knock knock jokes, plus 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, and as you can see the inside is rather cluttered, however outside offers a basketball court, swimming pool and a large yard with lovely trees. This piece of real estate has been listed at $ 3,000,000, so perhaps we should take up an offering to help Sinbad with his money woes.
