Katy Perry Sells Laurel Canyon Compound To Vegas Developer/B-Filmmaker For $5.6 Million

New, 3 comments

Katy Perry never lived in the historic DeWitt Residence in Laurel Canyon, but she did own it for two and a half years for some reason. That's over now: On the last day of 2013, she finally unloaded the estate, aka Park Hill, for $5.565 million (most recently she'd been asking $5.988 million, although she was originally shopping it in early 2013 for about $8 million). Perry, along with her ex-husband Russell Brand, bought the house from jailed National Lampoon CEO Daniel Laikin for $6.5 million; it was built in 1925 for early Hollywood developer CF DeWitt and includes two guesthouses, a studio, carriage house, pool with waterfall, and about three acres of land. According to the ever-reliable Real Estalker, Perry sold at such loss to Lorenzo Doumani, son of storied and perhaps mob-related Las Vegas developer Edward Doumani. The younger Doumani is a developer who has also written, directed, and acted in such non-blockbusters as Follow Your Heart and Monster Night, and, according to LinkedIn, now runs a news and entertainment network for tweens. Perry has moved on to a compound at the top of Runyon Canyon.
