They’re just like us. Celebrities get married and buy new homes. They also get divorced and sell former love nests. So far this month, we’ve seen a bit of both, plus the routine price-chops.

In a move that may be wishful thinking or pure chutzpah, producer Joel Silver put his 26,000-square-foot Brentwood mansion on the market for $77.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. Silver, who helmed franchises “Die Hard,” “Matrix” and “Lethal Weapon,” sold his Malibu estate for $38 million last year, after originally listing it for 2017 in $57.5 million.

Michael and Eva Chow, founders of celeb-favorite Mr. Chow, meanwhile dropped the asking price for their 30,000-square-foot Holmby Hills mansion. The estate, which comes with a three-story guest house, entertainment complex and outdoor ballroom, is currently listed for $70 million.

“No Doubt” that Gwen Stefani and her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale were ready to bid adieu to the Beverly Hills estate they once shared. The performers sold the Mulholland Drive home they originally listed for $35 million for $21.7 million after it sat on the market for three years.

Nick Jonas, who recently tied the knot with actress Priyanka Chopra, fared better in his real estate dealings. Jonas sold the 4,129-square-foot Beverly Hills home he bought in December 2018 to tennis star Naomi Osaka for $6.9 million. The five-bedroom, 4.5-bath mansion was built in 1965 and completely overhauled by former owner and L.A. nightlife impresario Jason Lev. Jonas had paid $6.5 million

RuPaul scooped up a dramatic European-style home in Beverly Hills for $13.7 million, according to the LA Times. The 10,000-square-foot mansion, which features a two-story chandeliered foyer with marble and wrought iron, originally hit the market for around $20 million in 2018 before the asking price was slashed to $16.4 million in May.
