This week in celebrity real estate, pop star and Bieber girlfriend Selena Gomez bought Jonah Hill's place in Tarzana; a place where the Beatles partied is for sale; and a luxe mansion once owned by Jennifer Lopez is on the market.
The classic, single-story house sits on just under an acre on a gated, corner lot. Described as an "entertainer's estate," the home has party-friendly amenities such as a pool and spa, endless patios, tennis and bocce ball courts.
Gomez previously called Encino home, living in a sprawling, 5,291-square-foot residence. The actress first made her debut on the Disney channel and has since made her foray into feature film with a role in "Springbreakers" due in theaters in 2013.

One home listing can boast a previous celebrity owner, but this Los Angeles home for sale has quite the celebrity pedigree.
According to listing agent Stephanie Nahai of Westside Estate Agency, who listed the home for $3.1 million on Aug. 24, Cary Grant, Zsa Zsa Gabor, the Rolling Stones, Peter Fonda and The Beatles did, over the years, spend a little time living or relaxing there. And thanks to our friends at Curbed LA, we know that at least some of the celebrities partied together at the house at least once — not that a great time was had by all.
In the hills overlooking Hollywood, anything can happen, and often does ... although in this Beverly Glen home at 2850 Benedict Canyon Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, that mix of A-list movies stars and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musicians weren't all gathered at the property at the same time.
A quick check with The Beatles Bible reveals that the Fab Four rented the 4-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom property from Gabor for five days in August 1965. They were taking a break from their North American tour, and the gated estate on 2.53 acres was the perfect place to relax — if you can call dropping acid amidst a carnival of reporters, groupies and visitors "relaxing."
Built in 1949, the home was subsequently owned by a Los Angeles business owner. Over the years, the place has retained the aura of a country estate with two wet bars, peg-and-groove floors, patios off all the bedrooms, fireplace in the kitchen, guest house, six-car garage and views of the canyon.

Jennifer Lopez hasn't lived in this enormous Miami Beach estate in seven years, but that doesn't mean the home is any less fabulous.
J.Lo sold the home at 5800 N Bay Rd, Miami Beach FL 33140 in 2005 to health care entrepreneur Mark Gainor and his wife, Elyse Gainor, for $13.9 million. The Gainors took it upon themselves to completely renovate the Miami Beach residence.
Looking at the property history, it appears this isn't the first time J.Lo's former home has been on the market. In 2010, the home was listed for $29 million, (perhaps prior renovation) and then briefly listed for a whopping $42.5 million in 2011. In early 2012, the price was slashed to $34.5 million before it was re-upped to its current price tag of $40 million.
J-Lo still owns a home in the area, as well as several other homes in California and a prime spot in the Hamptons.
