Katy Perry has put the mansion she once shared with ex-husband Russell Brand on the market for a cool $7 million. The pop superstar was looking for a quick private sale, though after failing to receive any substantial bids, has decided to put the 7-bedroom Hollywood Hills house on the public market. Perry, 28, and British comedian Brand, 37, bought the property for $6.5 million in 2011, though Brand transferred property ownership to his ex-wife after their divorce.

It features 11 bathrooms, a sweeping staircase, stained glass windows and a stone foyer. There's also plenty of land - 3 acres to be precise - and two guests wings, a swimming pool and waterfall. Basically it's one of the biggest houses we've ever seen, and it yours for just $6.925 million, though why not go in at $6 million? Perry wants a quick sale. 

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton caused a stir on Tuesday (April 9, 2013) after suggesting that Perry and Brand had been spotted "making out" in Los Angeles, however, the story was later pulled. "A source told us today that they saw Katy Perry and her ex-husband Russell Brand making out, but we have confirmation now it simply wasn't true! We're so sorry for jumping the gun on this one, KatyCat and Russ!" Hilton wrote afterwards.

Away from selling premium real estate, Perry has begun working on the follow-up to her 2010 smash hit album Teenage Dream, which should hit shelves later this summer. 

Brand meanwhile has been having his say on the death of Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minster of Britain. "I can't articulate with the skill of either of "the Marks", Steel or Thomas, why Thatcher and Thatcherism were so bad for Britain but I do recall that even to a child her demeanour and every discernible action seemed to be to the detriment of our national spirit and identity," he wrote on his official website.
