You’re feeling very sleepy… and like you might want to pay above ask?

British TV hypnotist Paul McKenna has listed his Hollywood Hills home for $14.97 million, more than twice the $6.6 million he paid for it in 2007, The Real Deal has learned.

The four-bedroom, five-bathroom home, on Rising Glen Road, is known as the John Schlesinger house after the late film director John Schlesinger and has been home to Hollywood royalty such as the Rolling Stones, Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford.

More recently, it was reported that the home was rented to One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson.

The 4,529-square-foot pad was previously asking $48,750 a month in rent, but this is the first time it’s been for sale in years, according to the listing. Christopher Dyson of the Agency has the exclusive listing, but was not immediately available for comment.

McKenna bought the property with his ex, Clare Staples. Following their split, Staples sensationally accused the hypnotist of cocaine and alcohol abuse and cavorting with prostitutes — allegations he denied. He accused her of being a “greedy woman” who was simply trying to extort him for money.

His net worth has been pegged at approximately $55 million.
