Hip-hop mogul Sean Combs, aka Diddy, sold a nearly 10,000-square-foot Los Angeles home last week for $6.51 million.
The six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom residence sits on half an acre in the Toluca Lake neighborhood, located about 12 miles northwest of downtown in the San Fernando Valley. The property was home to Kim Porter, an actress and model who dated Mr. Combs, 52, for many years and had three children with him. She died from pneumonia on the property in 2018 at age 47.
The gated traditional-style home is “one of the largest and grandest homes in Toluca Lake…on one of the most prestigious streets in the San Fernando Valley,” according to the listing with listing agent Carl Gambino of Compass. He declined to comment.
It boasts a two-story entry foyer with a gallery level, a great room with a fireplace and built-ins that opens up onto the pool and spa area, and a large eat-in kitchen, according to the listing.
The six bedrooms were painted in an array of colors, including black, aqua and bright pink, listing photos show. There’s also a media room, an outdoor fireplace, a sports court and a three-car garage.
Mr. Combs is a three-time Grammy Award-winning musician, known for songs such as “I’ll Be Missing You” and “It’s All About the Benjamins.” He also founded Bad Boy Records in 1993, which produced work by the likes of Faith Evans and The Notorious B.I.G.
He bought the home in 2009 for $5.25 million through a limited liability company tied to one of his long-time advisors. Representatives for the rapper did not immediately return requests for comment.
