“Idol” host Ryan Seacrest has sold his mansion for $11 million to pick up Ellen DeGeneres’ pad, according to TMZ.
He purchased the place for $11.5 million in 2006 but if anyone can afford to take a loss, it’s Seacrest.
The 8,000-square-foot mansion used to be owned by Kevin Coster and before that, Richard Dreyfus.
He and his girlfriend Julianne Hough have moved into Ellen’s former home, which he purchased earlier this year for $37.5 million.
