Unfortunately for the pop star, however, she lost A LOT of money in the process.
According to TMZ, Katy bought the home for $6.5 million back in 2011 and it just sold for $5.65 million. After commissions and other fees, she is in the red for over a million dollars!
Obviously, there is something to be said for cleaning out the painful stuff from your past, but that's a pretty hefty price to pay!
The gorgeous home features seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, spread out over almost 9,000 square feet.
The "Roar" singer reportedly listed the palatial pad for $8 million, but after it sat for quite some time, the price received a serious attitude adjustment and someone finally swooped in and helped her clear that one out of her property portfolio.
