The creator of American Idol is hoping his Bel Air mansion has the star power to command a lofty asking price.

Simon Fuller has quietly put his 12,000-square-foot home up for sale for $37.5 million, according to Yolanda’s Little Black Book. The listing isn’t public, but Yolanda reports he’s hired some prominent brokers to shop the home as a pocket listing.

That’s 56 percent more than the $24 million he paid for the 1.6 acre-spread in 2014.

Fuller has made some profitable sales in L.A. before. In 2016, he sold an 8,000-square-foot mansion for $14.1 million, or $6.1 million more than what he paid for it a decade earlier. The house hit the market again in March for $20 million.

Fuller’s Bel Air manse was designed by Gordon Kaufmann and dates from the 1930s. It has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, according to property records. Fuller and his wife, interior designer Natalie Swanston, have decorated its large rooms in whites, greys, and blacks, including ebonized wood floors. The property includes a pool and a large lawn area.

Fuller rose in showbiz by managing the 1990s pop girl group the Spice Girls. He’s managed dozens of stars in and out of music since, including singer Amy Winehouse, F1 driver Lewis Hamilton, and David Beckham. [Yolanda’s Little Black Book] – Dennis Lynch
