Hey, hey, you, you, I can sell you a multi-million dollar mansion.

Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Avril Lavigne has reportedly agreed to sell her Bel Air mansion to Los Angeles Clippers All-Star point guard Chris Paul for $8.5 million.

TMZ.com has the details.
Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul is planning to stay in town a while because he's about to drop $8.5 million on a sick Bel Air mansion that he's buying from Avril Lavigne. Sources tell us Paul fell in love with the 12,184 square foot place, which Avril originally listed for $9.5 mil and decided he had to make a move.

The mansion -- located in a hoity-toity private community called Bel Air Crest -- includes 8 bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms, a wine cellar, 10-car garage, gym, sauna and a covered outdoor living room.  
Paul married wife, Jada, back in September. The couple has a 2-year-old son.

Paul was traded from the New Orleans Hornets to the Clippers during the December free agency period for a package that included Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu and a first round draft pick. The trade gave the Clippers a pair of All-Stars in Paul and franchise forward Blake Griffin. Los Angeles is currently 8-4 on the season, good enough for first place in the Pacific Division and third overall in the West.

Basketball-Reference.com reports
Paul's career NBA earnings top $43 million. ShamSports.com reports that Paul, 26, is on the books for $16.4 million in 2011-2012 and $17.78 million in 2012-2013.

Paul has been sidelined with a hamstring injury this week.

Glad to see home prices didn't fall to far in Southern Cal!

Hopefully he had her sign a pre-nuptial agreement or he'll find himself in the same
unfortunate predicament as dumb ass Kobe Bryant.
That's what happens when you barely finish school and don't listen to your parents.
In addition, the Clippers may not have the same team in two years so good luck to CP3
and his LALA Land Dreams if he commits to Donald Sterling and the Clip Joint.
Think before you leap!!!
