EXCLUSIVEBruce Willis finally dumped the house that became the albatross around his neck ... TMZ has learned.
Willis sold his Benedict Canyon estate in Beverly Hills for $16.5 million. It was a struggle ... he had it on the market for 15 months.
Good news/bad news.

Good news: He bought it for $9 million back in 2004.
