Robbie Williams’ sprawling Los Angeles family home has been slammed by superstar rapper Drake for an alleged $50 million.
The lavish estate, which stretches across three acres of land in Beverly Hills, is believed to have been sold to the 35-year-old Canadian musician in an off-market deal.
The Take That singer, 48, shared the home with the actress, wife Ayda Field, 42, and their four children; Theodora, nine, Charlton, seven, Colette, three, and Beau, two.
It is understood he was initially hoping to sell the Tuscan-style home for $80 million before settling for $50 million after failing to find a buyer.
The Angels singer shouldn’t be too dejected, however, as he still made a notable profit after originally buying the property from Guess co-founder Armand Marciano in 2015 for $32.67 million, property records reveal.
The main house is 25,000 feet high and has ten bedrooms and a whopping 22 bathrooms.
The villa also features a gym, games room, screening room, elevator, tennis court, eleven car garage, mosaic tiled pool and outdoor kitchen.
Mail Online reports that this is Drake’s first real estate purchase in Los Angeles, having previously purchased a 50,000-square-foot home in Toronto.
The sale comes after Robbie sold his country estate in Wiltshire, four months after it went on the market.
The X Factor judge bought the property for £8.1million in 2008 but has now sold it at a loss, having reduced the asking price to £6.75million.
The house has seven bedrooms, a large kitchen, a living room with a roaring fire, a swimming pool, a helipad and a huge expansive garden lot.
Robbie has previously hinted it’s haunted and said it gave him “the goosebumps”.
He previously said on a podcast: “It gives me goosebumps. Teddy said to me, ‘This room scares me. I don’t like this house.’
“I said, ‘It scares me too. You don’t have to sleep there anymore.’
“If there’s great sadness or great pain or tragedy, I think it can seep into the walls and leave an essence there that stays for a very, very long time.”

However, Rob has also previously gushed about the building, saying that he and Ayda – who he began dating in 2006 and married in 2010 – fell deeply in love there.
He said: “The Compton Bassett House was the perfect retreat for our family.
“This is where Ayda and I really fell in love, put down roots as a couple and dreamed of our future family.”

The singer also owns a home in London, which has been the source of an ongoing fight with his neighbor, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.
The Let Me Entertain You singer received permission for an underground pool and gym in 2019 after five years of fighting with Page.
