Chrissy Teigen and John Legend unload $17M Beverly Hills mansion

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend unloaded their former Beverly Hills abode last week for $16.8 million.

They celebrity couple — by turns beloved and controversial — moved out of the seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home in August 2020 to trade up to a bigger space for their growing family — beginning a seller’s nightmare.

Their old hilltop property went into escrow a week after it listed for $24 million in 2020, but the deal fell through, delaying the sale and leaving potential buyers thinking the house had sold, Peck told the Post.

Teigen, 35, and Legend, 42, lost the baby in October 2020 before they moved into their new home (they rented while finishing renovations) and announced in December 2020 that Teigen would not become pregnant again.

Still trying to unload the then-$22.5 million property, they moved into their new home where they live today and where they have stated they plan to grow their family, potentially through adoption, the Post previously reported.

The hilltop property took so long to sell because the initial offer on the house -- made after the property had been on the market for a week -- fell through, leaving potential thinking the house had sold, Peck told the Wall Street Journal.

The 8,520-square-foot Janice Place mansion, which listed for just under $24 million in August 2020, finally sold at a 30% discount after almost a year on and off the market. It was most recently listed for $17.7 million in May.

“It is hands down the most beautiful home in Beverly Hills,” listing broker Marshall Peck of Douglas Elliman, Beverly Hills told the New York Post.

The buyer is a private-equity executive, the Wall Street Journal reported. The sale has not yet hit property records but has been recorded on listing sites like Realtor.com.

Their old house, now under new ownership, underwent major renovations by investors before Teigen and Legend purchased it in 2016 for $14.1 million. It was formerly owned by Rihanna, who sold the house in 2014 for $7.65 million after filing lawsuits over what she said were construction defects.

The 1966 home, which Legend and Teigen further renovated after the work done by investors, has patterned ceilings from Thailand, cerused oak floors, clay-and-steel-rolled walls, high ceilings, a chef’s kitchen and expansive windows with canyon views, according to the listing.

“It has the finest finishes I have ever seen,” said Peck.

The property has two additional decks not shown in listing photos. One is at the top of a tall outdoor staircase, providing canyon and peek-a-boo ocean views at the pinnacle of the hill. The other is at the edge of the irregularly-shaped property, around the side.

The “All of Me” singer and his model wife recently escaped to Italy but live in a new 10,700-square-foot Beverly Hills with their two children, five-year-old Luna (who designed Teigen’s newest tattoo) and three-year-old Miles, and Teigen’s mother Vilailuck Teigen also known as “Pepper Thai.”

Teigen recently stated that she could be “canceled forever” over bullying comments made to Courtney Stodden 10 years ago, for which Stodden claims Teigen has not apologized. Michael Costello has also leveled bullying accusations against the model, which she denies. The scandal has caused Teigen to drop out of the Netflix series “Never have I ever,” and Macy’s also dropped her cookware line.

“[I] feel like utter s–t in real life,” Teigen wrote on Instagram on July 14. “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.”

“Works in progress x 3,” Teigen posted on May 9 in what appears to be her newly renovated kitchen in the family’s new home.
