Though the property was never publicly available for sale, Chris D’Elia has quietly — and perhaps unsurprisingly — sold the most expensive of his three Los Angeles homes. Tucked behind the 24/7 guarded gates of The Summit community, high above Beverly Hills, the ’80s-modern mansion went for $5.8 million, a relatively minor profit over the $5.4 million paid by the scandal-plagued comedian/actor back in 2018. Per records, the new owners are a non-famous corporate attorney and his wife.
When D’Elia bought the house three years ago, he was at his professional height — a successful standup comic with a wildly popular podcast, lucrative acting gigs and a host of big-name sponsors. Since then, however, the gravy train has jumped off the rails, or at the very least hit a big snag, amid a multitude of lurid claims detailing patterns of sexual harassment, grooming and child pornography.
D’Elia condemned his past misconduct but a sexual exploitation lawsuit ensued, and the fallout caused his public perception to tank. And as expected, advertisers and business partners quickly ran for the proverbial hills — the 41-year-old’s podcast lost sponsors, he was dropped by his talent reps at the CAA and 3 Arts agencies, an upcoming Netflix series was scrapped, and his role in the 2021 film “Army of the Dead” was reshot with another actor. Today, D’Elia continues podcasting and still maintains a core group of fans, though it seems interest — and along with it, his income — has declined, perhaps substantially.
As for the 90210 villa, it was sold to D’Elia by actress Tricia Helfer (“Lucifer”), and was also once owned by both rocker Alex Van Halen and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” creator Kevin Eastman. Built in 1984, the boxy modern is located in the same exclusive enclave also home to Serena Williams, Pete Wentz, Sebastian Maniscalco and Hillary Duff.
