Chris Martin has sold his Malibu mansion for US$14.4 million (S$19.6 million).
The 44-year-old music star bought the luxurious property — which he shared with Dakota Johnson — for US$12.5 million in October 2020, and has now sold for it a profit of almost US$2 million.
The spectacular mansion features a swimming pool, a hot tub, and a home theatre, as well as a two-story guest house with a game room, a living room and a kitchen.
The property also boasts six bedrooms and nine bathrooms and covers 5,338 sq ft.
But Chris — who was married to Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow between 2003 and 2016 — has instead decided to acquire another property a few blocks away because it offers him more privacy, according to Dirt.
Meanwhile, Chris recently revealed that he’s taken up opera singing in a bid to improve his vocals.
The Coldplay star explained that he’s “stepped up” his game amid the Covid-19 pandemic, as he wants to improve his singing abilities.
Speaking about his ambition, he shared: “I train vocally because I want to get better.
“I have had a teacher for a long time but during the pandemic, we stepped it up. A very good way to develop those muscles is by trying to sing opera.
“Right now I am a really, really good Coldplay singer and a really bad opera singer, but I am trying.”
Chris made the comments shortly after Coldplay confirmed that they will stop making music in 2025.
Discussing the band’s future, the Yellow hitmaker explained: “Our last proper record will come out in 2025 and after that, I think we will only tour.
“Maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes then.”
