Clippers Star Chris Paul

Buying SICK Bel Air Mansion

from Avril Lavigne

1/19/2012 4:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Los Angeles Clippers
star Chris Paul is planning to stay in town a while ... 'cause he's about to drop $8.5 MILLION on a sick Bel Air mansion that he's buying from Avril Lavigne ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... Paul fell in love with the 12,184 square foot place, which Avril originally listed for $9.5 mil and decided he had to make a move.

The mansion -- located in a hoity-toity private community called Bel Air Crest -- includes 8 bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms, a wine cellar, 10-car garage, gym, sauna and a covered outdoor living room.

We're told the real estate agents who engineered the deal are Jade Mills and Zach Quittman from Coldwell Banker in Beverly Hills who reps Avril, and, Ikem Chukumerije from SportsRelocation.com, who reps Chris.

Before Avril moved in ... Travis Barker lived in the place with his ex Shanna Moakler ... and it was even featured on their MTV reality show "Meet the Barkers."

As for Paul, dude is in year 3 of a 4-year $68,000,000 contract ... so, he can afford it.

Since O.J Simpson confessed to being Khloe's biological father,is it possible that TODD WATERMAN fathered Rob K.??
He(Rob) was conceived about the time of the affair, and they have the same coloring and look alike.TODD WATERMAN is hot!

I have to laugh when TMZ hypes the $ value of some of these Cali homes. Sure they are great but the cost of those homes hardly compare to dropping $15 Million just for a lot along Point Grey Road in Vancouver, BC

How long before Kim K is dating this Chris? She wanted the house, she wants a famous & rich african american athlete. Seems like it would be a another ploy the Kardashians pull off.
