Singer of one million octaves Mariah Carey and her husband-no-more Nick Cannon (who starred on Nickelodeon's All That) have sold their 13,000-square-foot Bel Air estate for $9M. The three-acre property features a music studio, home theater, basketball court, seven bedrooms, seven fireplaces, a putting green, and a pool with the letters "MCN" large in the center. Ideally, the buyer has similar initials, but if not, that pool mosaic is a national treasure, and should be kept as-is anyway.
Carey and Cannon purchased the home in 2009 from recording studio exec Allen Sides for $6,975,000. Sides had expanded the traditional-style house after purchasing from former Charlie's Angels star Farrah Fawcett, who lived there more than 20 years. The couple originally listed the home last year for $13M, and received an offer from a cagey buyer who eventually dropped out of the sale. Perhaps it was all that cheesy romantic decor that did it.
