Canadian chanteuse Avril Lavigne recently forked over $9.5 million to purchase a 12,184-square-foot, Tuscan-style mansion in the Bel-Air community that rocker Travis Barker of Blink-182 owned from 2004 until late 2006 and that he used to film his now-concluded MTV reality series ‘Meet the Barkers.’

Let’s take a tour, shall we?

Avril initially wanted to build a home but settled on buying one that was fairly new with substantial upgrades. The three-story house behind gates has eight bedrooms and 10 1/2 bathrooms.

The Tuscan-style residence, on an acre, also has an elevator, an office, a state-of-the-art kitchen, a steam shower, a sauna, a pool, a spa and garage space for 10 cars.

Avril still needs to sell her five-bedroom, 6,864-square-foot mansion in the Mulholland Estates neighborhood above Beverly Hills, which she purchased in 2004 for $4 550 000. That house had been listed for $6.9 million and later was reduced to $6.2 million.

Avril’s new humble abode boasts three seperate full kitchens — for those of us who need a quick fix when munchies come a callin’.

This spread really goes against anything that Avril wants us to think she stands for. How pretentious.

Call me naive, but I don’t understand why people think they need all this room (10.5 bathrooms, kitchens galore). It just seems so senseless.

all these bathrooms in case 10 people want to use it at the same time?… that’s ridiculous.

Comment by mylene

^I agree. 21,000 square feet is ridiculous. Who the hell needs all that and then half the time the celebs will go stay at hotels just to be seen by the pool. Is it just me that thinks her and her husband look too trashy to pick out a house like this?

Comment by my2cents

Call me crazy but doesn’t this look exactly like Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler’s house?

Comment by katiekate

Three kitchens? What the hell do you need with 3 kitchens? Do they have a in-house restaurant to keep up?? Ridiculous. I doubt most celebs cook their own food, let alone stay in and eat, so I don’t get the point of having three kitchens… or 10.5 bathrooms and 10-car garages. Frivolous.

trash. pretentious.

Comment by carlett

Ohhhh I love this house!! It looked so nice when Travis and Shanna lived there. Travis will be so annoyed that a little rock wannabe has taken over his pad. She probably thinks some of his music genius and authenticity as an actual artist will rub off on her. Good luck avril…everyone knows your a big fake. I wish she would just come out and admit she’s a girlie girl who loves big white weddings and fashion instead of trying to keep up the punk rock thing that was obviously just marketing ploy.
