Tom Cruise Cutting Ties with L.A. Sells Beverly Hills Mansion

5/17/2016 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517-tom-cruise-beverly-hills-home-PCN-01Tom Cruise has decided to leave Los Angeles because he's saying goodbye to the estate he called home for nearly a decade.

Our real estate spies tell us ... Tom has sold the 10,000 square foot mansion he shared with Katie Holmes for $40 million. He was asking $45 mil but no takers at that price. Tom still cashed in ... he bought the pad from real estate guru Kurt Rappaport -- who owed it back in 2007 -- for $32.5 mil.

The buyer is billionaire Leon Black, who's worth $4.7 billion. Black owns a private equity firm.

As for the house, it has 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a tennis court, a swimming pool (of course), a children's playground and a couple of guesthouses.   

The house is currently in escrow. Tom also sold a Hollywood Hills compound back in October for $11.4 million to Eva Longoria.

We don't know where Tom's gonna call home.

0517-tom-ford-beyonce-jay-z-house-MLS-01Jay Z and Beyonce got outbid again in their search for an L.A. home ... this time designer/director Tom Ford beat them out.

Our real estate sources tell us ... Tom offered $50 million on a Beverly Hills mansion ... he edged out Jay and Bey, who bid $49 mil.

The estate is awesome ... 14,000 square feet, sitting on 3.2 acres and has 9 bedrooms, and 10 bathrooms. It was built in 1934 and owned by the rich and famous, including actor William Powell and 'James Bond' producer Albert Broccoli. The house is in escrow.

And how's this ... Jay Z has a song titled "Tom Ford" where he hypes up the brand.

You'll recall Jay Z and Beyonce lost out on another home back in 2014 ... the one purchased by Minecraft creator Markus Persson.

5/16/2016 12:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0516_aaron_paul_idaho_house_airbnb_launchAaron Paul's real estate rental game is on point ... 'cause he hustles as a host AND a guest.

"Breaking Bad" fans, up to four guests, can stay in Aaron's pad in Boise, Idaho for a bargain at $395 a night. The splashy crib's powered by geothermal hot springs, and it's within walking distance to downtown. The only rule -- ironically for Jesse Pinkman -- no parties inside the house!

Even with the party ban ... Aaron has RAVE reviews on his Airbnb profile.

He's loyal too -- ditching a hotel this past weekend, and opting for a huge Airbnb mansion in Park City for his brother's bachelor party. That pad goes for $5k a night but he got hooked up on this one.

5/16/2016 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Good news ... Serena Williams is finally recovered from that whole dog food mishap (R.I.P. toilet) -- and just showed off the inside of her HUUUUGE apartment in Paris -- and it's awesome. 

First off, Paris is one of the most expensive cities in the world when it comes to real estate -- so when you see the size of this place, you know Serena dropped SERIOUS CASH to buy it. 

You gotta see the video tour Serena gives ... showing off everything from her renovated kitchen to her bar area ... and her awesome closet -- straight out of 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.'

FYI, Serena reportedly made $25 million last year. 


Madeleine Stowe Naked & Afraid ... I Was Robbed at Gunpoint

5/16/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0512-madeleine-stowe-tmz-01Madeleine Stowe says she survived a terrifying ordeal -- a home intruder putting a gun to her neck in the middle of the night, and making off with $75k worth of jewelry. 

According to law enforcement docs ... Stowe and her husband, Brian Benben, were asleep at home last September, when she was awakened by someone rummaging through their master bathroom. Madeleine, who was nude at the time, says she went to check it out -- and was confronted by a Latino man, the intruder, who pointed a handgun to her neck. 

The former "Revenge" star told police the man spoke in broken English and demanded, "I want all the valuable, I want something." She says she gave him a bag filled with $75k worth of antique jewelry, and then he made a clean getaway.

 A few months later cops busted the suspect, Walter Canizalez, as he was allegedly attempting another heist. Police believe he's pulled 3 other armed home robberies, and he's been charged with more than 15 counts ... including robbery and sexual battery.  

When Canizalez was caught, cops say he was wearing a Spiderman mask -- just as he was during some of the alleged robberies.

Nerlens Noel I Didn't Trash That House ... Denies Death Threat

5/10/2016 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0510-nerlens-noel-TMZ-01Nerlens Noel says he's NOT the renter from hell -- claiming allegations he absolutely destroyed the Philly home he was renting last year are pure B.S. ... adding that he never threatened to kill the owners. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the 76ers star was sued for more than $40,000 by the property owners who say the 22-year-old trashed the place so bad, the place looked like a bomb went off inside. 

Among the accusations ... carpet destruction, toilets clogged with cotton balls and feces, water damage, broken appliances and allegations he left a tombstone on the front step as a death threat.

0408_Nerlens_Noel_trashed_house_footerNow, Noel has finally fired back in legal docs of his own -- adamantly denying he went "Project X" on the place. In fact, Nerlens says he tried to work with the owners to repair the carpet damage even though he wasn't entirely convinced he damaged them in the first place. 

But Nerlens is clearly most upset about the tombstone allegation -- insisting it was just a Halloween decoration that was left on the property a few weeks before the holiday ... and doesn't amount to a threat.

Nerlens wants the whole case thrown out, stat ... and we're guessing he'll never rent from  these people again.

0509_minnie_driver_tmz-2Minnie Driver's wreaking havoc on her neighbor by chucking baby food jars filled with black paint against his walls ... according to a new lawsuit.

In the docs, Daniel Perelmutter says Driver's made it impossible for him to finish construction on his home, and her obscenity-laced tirades are stressing him out -- a serious issue, since he says he's had a heart transplant.

Daniel's asking the court to remove the electronic gate he used to share with Minnie because she's cut off his access. He also says she's thrown construction materials on his property and blocked in his workers for up to 8 hours -- not to mention those baby food paint grenades.  

These 2 have been warring for years -- but now he wants a judge to stop her from blocking his construction.

Exclusive Details

0506_prince_turks_and_caicos_house_launchTurns out Paisley Park isn't the only Prince real estate that could be hitting the market. 

Back in 2010, Prince purchased a 10,000 square foot fortress on the island of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos. Asking price ... $12 million!

The 10 bedroom and 10 bathroom mansion comes with a tennis court, 200 foot boat dock and its own private white sand beach. 

Robert Greenwood of Christie's International Real Estate tells us Prince had not fully moved in -- it's sparsely furnished. There's actually a few items in the house from the "Purple Rain" movie, including a mirror and a few chairs.

BTW ... the first thing Prince did when he bought the place ... painted the driveway purple!

The French Provincial 7 bedroom, 9 bath (plus 5 half baths) was originally listed for $25 mil, but the eventual $17.5 million sale price is still enough to make it the most expensive home sale ever in Atlanta. Chase Mizell and Josh Reeves from Atlanta Fine Homes can take credit for the record breaking sale.

0504_akon_georgia_house_launchAkon put his home on the market, but anyone looking to snatch it up better bring a checkbook AND a handyman.

The home is on a massive lot in a gated community ... and check out the spread in this gallery. Two pools, 2 guest houses, and basketball and tennis courts.

Steal of the century?

Jermaine Jackson My Mom Has a Right to Michael's House

5/6/2016 3:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson thinks the deed that was filed attempting to transfer the title of Michael Jackson's Hayvenhurst home to Katherine was kosher, because he says that's exactly what MJ wanted.

We got Jermaine Friday at Health Nut in Calabasas, and he made it clear ... his mother and siblings have big beef with the Michael Jackson Estate.

TMZ broke the story ... Katherine signed legal docs 2 weeks ago making it appear that Michael deeded the family home to Katherine and his 3 kids. Jermaine is acting like either he or his siblings might be behind it, but he never says.

Fact is ... the deed isn't valid, because the property is owned by the estate, and dead people can't transfer property.
