The estate once home to “American Idol” creator Simon Fuller hit the market this week, asking a hefty $20 million. The Beverly Hills compound, featuring a few upgrades and renovations, spans 8,000 square feet spread across three stories. In addition to five bedrooms, a billiards room, screening room, gym, sports court and swimming pool can be found onsite. Fuller sold the property for $14.6 million in 2016, the Los Angeles Times reported. Vangelis Korasidis of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage holds the listing.

“Hero” singer Mariah Carey is paying $35,000 a month to rent a star-studded mansion in the Coldwater Canyon neighborhood in Beverly Hills. The pop singer — now sleeping where Nicki Minaj once resided — is laying out big bucks for the roughly 10,000-square-foot pad, stacked with eight bedrooms and nearly eight bathrooms. It includes a swimming pool, expansive backyard and spa, Variety reported. To make matters more glitzy, the Mediterranean-style manse is owned by a Saudi royal. Tomer Fridman of Compass represented Carey.

Ed Norton, famous for his roles in “Fight Club” and “Primal Fear,” is seeking a buyer for his longtime Malibu home. Asking $5.25 million, the beachfront estate on Las Flores beach includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two full kitchens, a spa and tiki hut-style outdoor bar, the Los Angeles Times reported. It also has about 40 feet of sandy beach frontage. Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage holds the listing.

Comedian and actor Damon Wayans is leasing his Santa Monica condo for $20,000 a month. The “Lethal Weapon” actor owns a 3,000-square-foot pad with two bedrooms and three bathrooms. After dropping $3 million for the home in 2005, Wayans unsuccessfully tried to sell it in 2016 and 2017 for $6.5 million, Variety reported. Aside from Pacific Ocean views, the rental comes with access to the building’s parking garage, fitness facilities and rooftop pool.
