Justin Bieber has moved into a new mansion in Atlanta, Georgia.

The 19-year-old star, who was recently eyeing up an $11 million house to buy in the city after deciding to move there to be close to his mentor Usher, is renting the 5,500 square-foot property for three months to give him more time to search for his dream home.

A source close to the Canadian star told gossip website TMZ.com that Justin moved into the four-bedroom house, that belongs to music producer Dallas Austin, last week and plans to live in there while he works on his new hip-hop album and looks for his own place to purchase.

The 'Baby' hitmaker has been hunting for a property in the city's exclusive Buckhead neighbourhood, where Usher lives with his sons, Naviyd, five, and Usher Raymond V, six, but hasn't found anything he wants to invest in yet.

The singer is selling his home in Calabasas, California after arguing with his neighbours about his partying and loud music, which came to a head with an incident where one of his neighbour's houses was egged, causing up to $20,000 of damage. The matter is currently being investigated by the District Attorney and could result in charges brought against the star.

But Justin still plans to have a permanent base in Los Angeles and will split his time between both cities.

Atlanta was the first place the 'Heartbreaker' singer - who was raised in London, Ontario - lived when he moved to the US from Canada to embark on his music career.
