John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have cooked up a deal in West Hollywood, buying a newly built home in the area for $5.1 million, The Times has confirmed.
The couple, who make their home in the Beverly Hills Post Office area, intend to use the wood-paneled contemporary as a live-work residence, according to sources not authorized to comment publicly on the deal.
The two-story house has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and more than 3,400 square feet of open-concept living space. A high-end kitchen outfitted with a 20-foot-long island opens to the living room. Pocketing doors open to a patio with a lap swimming pool and spa.
The house had been on the market since January for $5.195 million, records show. It was also available for lease at $26,000 a month.
Legend, 41, has won 11 Grammy Awards, including two awards for best R&B album, for “Wake Up!” and “Get Lifted.” He won an Academy Award for the song “Glory” for the 2014 film “Selma.”
Teigen, 34, is a television personality, model and author. She appears on the new court show, “Chrissy’s Court,” on the short-form video platform Quibi.
This couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen met on the set of Legend’s 2007 music video “Stereo,” where Teigen had a part as the star and they have been together for more than a decade since then. The picture above was taken at the Grammys in 2008, their first public appearance as a couple. As Chrissy said in an interview, they broke up for one day though, and it was a big mistake, so they never separated again. Legend and Teigen got married in 2013 and now have 2 children – daughter Luna and son Miles.
Benyamin Illulian of Keller Williams Realty was the listing agent. Marshall Peck of Douglas Elliman represented the buyer.
