Chrissy Teigen and John Legend sell Beverly Hills mega-mansion for $16.8M

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have sold an 8,520 sq. foot seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion they owned in Beverly Hills for $16.8 million after a yearlong effort to unload the prime property.

Teigen, 35, and Legend, 42, last August had moved out of the home, according to the New York Post, which went into escrow after only a week on the market last year at a selling price of $24 million.

Realtor Marshall Peck of Douglas Elliman, Beverly Hills told the outlet that the aforementioned deal did not go through, creating delays in the process while giving potential purchasers the false impression the property wasn't on the market.

The latest: Chrissy Teigen, 35, and John Legend, 42, have sold an 8,520 sq. foot seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion they owned in Beverly Hills for $16.8 million after a yearlong effort to unload the prime property 

The famed family - including kids Luna, five, and Miles, three, and Chrissy's mother Vilailuck Teigen - had moved out of the home with a bigger home being renovated, as Teigen was expecting their third child, but they tragically lost the baby last October, and Teigen said in December on Instagram she 'never will be [pregnant] again.'

At the time, Teigen and Legend - who bought the home in 2016 for $14.1 million - had looked to sell the Beverly Hills home at a price of $22.5 million, according to the outlet.

The pair in May had put the property on the market for $17.7 million, and a private-equity executive wound up making the winning offer, according to the Wall Street Journal. 

The home, which was built in 1966, was once owned by Rihanna, who later sold it in 2014 for $7.65 million, after litigation over construction. Investors who bought the home made significant renovations prior to Teigen and Legend's purchase two years later, including a personal gym and movie theater.

The home features 33-foot ceilings, a sculptural staircase and floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of the canyon 

The 8,520 sq.ft. home has seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and sits on nearly an acre of land in a private gated area just minutes from The Beverly Hills Hotel and Rodeo Drive

The kitchen is made for a chef, as cookbook author Chrissy is often seen showing off her cooking skills online, and comes complete with an enormous island that seats six

Peck told the Post the home 'is hands down the most beautiful home in Beverly Hills' and that 'it has the finest finishes I have ever seen.'

He added: 'It features 33-foot ceilings, a sculptural staircase, floor-to-ceiling windows and sweeping canyon views while bespoke teak ceilings from Thailand, cerused oak floors steel-rolled clay walls exude sensuality.'

The home sits on nearly an acre of land in a private gated area just minutes from The Beverly Hills Hotel and Rodeo Drive. Listing photos show just how luxurious the stylish celebrity couple's home is, with 33-foot high ceilings, a sculptural staircase and floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of the canyon.

The kitchen is made for a chef, as the cookbook author had often been seen showing off her cooking skills online; and comes complete with an enormous island that seats six.

The kitchen then opens up into a large family room and throughout the home the ceilings are bespoke patterned from Thailand, with oak floors and clay and steel-rolled walls that 'exude sensuality', according to an earlier listing.

Teigen is in the middle of a bullying scandal for past toxic social media behavior, which has led Macy's to cease selling her kitchen line and her exit from the Netflix show Never Have I Ever. The model/cookbook author said she could be 'canceled forever' amid the career crisis.

Teigen last year let fans inside her enormous closet that looks more like a showroom after clearing out her clothes ahead of the move

Determined to keep the space tidy, Chrissy told fans as she cleaned out her closet: ' I can't come up here ever again, I can't handle it'

The couple's children have a perfect playroom that any child would love, complete with books, a TV, kitchen area and stuffed animals 

I 'feel like utter s–t in real life,' Teigen said July 14 on Instagram. 'Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. But I do know that however I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer. 

'I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay.'

Some instances involve Courtney Stodden; Teigen had apologized publicly in May to Stodden in a tweet, but Stodden said Teigen has yet to do so privately.

'I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be, I was an insecure, attention seeking troll,' Teigen wrote. 'I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.'
