TOMMY LEE's house burglarized
house in Calabasas, California, on sale for the last few years
According to TMZ, MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee‘s house in Calabasas, California, which he has been trying to sell for the last few years, has been burglarized.
Police alerted the drummer there had been a break-in at the home last week, according to the site. Someone got in through a back glass door, and broke glass, lamps and even one of Tommy‘s side gates. However, the only things that were stolen were a bathroom mirror and some cabinet handles. The total damage/loss for Lee is estimated to be only around $5,000.
Tommy put the house on the market in April 2016 for $5,995,000, but that price came down in July 2016 by three hundred thousand to $5,699,000, in November 2016 by another two hundred thousand to $5,495,000 and in May 2017 by half a million to $4,995,000. Five months later, Tommy dropped the asking price to $4,650,000 before removing the house from the market in February 2018. Three months later, he put the home up for sale again at $4,650,000 before removing it in May 2019. The house was placed back on the market in May 2020 for $4,599,000 before the listing was removed in May 2021. The house was relisted for that same price in September 2022.
The drummer purchased the home in 2007 for $5.85 million, according to property records.
