We had no idea that "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" singer Sophie B. Hawkins (ah, the nineties!) was paired up with Getty step-child Gigi Gaston--tipsters bearing real estate listings can really teach you things. Gaston is the daughter of Theodora Lynch Getty, J. Paul Getty's last wife (he founded Getty Oil and the eponymous museum and trust), and she grew up at the Getty beach house in Santa Monica, according to our tipster. Gaston and Hawkins's house in Venice, up for sale now, includes a "hand painted fireplace from the J Paul Getty beach house and tiles from Monet’s blue kitchen in Giverny," plus eight foot tall hand-carved mesquite doors, reclaimed oak and cypress floors, and a hand-carved marble fireplace. It has three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a dining room, and a separate garage structure converted into a recording studio and two legal studios apartments for a little extra income. Asking price is $3.265 million.
