It hasn’t been an easy few weeks for Trevor Noah.
The comedian has been dealing with a certain A-list rap artist lately, and now he can add the sale of his Bel Air home, which he bought less than a year ago, to the list at a huge loss.
The “The Daily Show” host dropped $27.5 million for the swanky 11,300-square-foot estate in December 2020.
A year later, he put the Mark Rio-designed home up for sale, hoping to fetch $29.75 million.
But two months in the market with no offers, Noah, 38, relisted the house for the same price he got it for. It eventually sold on March 22 for $26.39 million — more than $1 million less than what he paid for.
The identity of the buyer is unclear at this point – but whoever they are, they struck a small deal.
Consisting of six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a powder room, the house has been called a “masterpiece”.
Features designated as a “Museum Standard Design” home include a gated truck stop, separate staff entrance, and naturally lit living areas with a slight outdoor-indoor flow, as noted in the previous listing.
The outdoor facilities include a pavilion with an outdoor kitchen and an infinity pool.
Indoor amenities include a security booth, gym, sauna, screening room and a master suite with two bathrooms and dressing rooms. There is also a separate guest apartment.
Jonas Wilson with Hilton & Hyland repeated the listing.
Noah’s primary residence is a $10 million penthouse in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood that he bought in 2017.
Loss on sale comes after Kanye West slammed Noah with racial insults following comments Noah made about West’s social media behavior towards estranged wife Kim Kardashian. In particular, Noah addressed the ongoing drama between West and Kardashian and her new boyfriend, Pete Davidson, on his Comedy Central show last Tuesday. He once called West “belligerent.”
“What [Kardashian is] It’s terrifying to go through and it puts a spotlight on what so many women go through when they decide to leave,” Noah said on the air.
West, 44, mocked Noah with an Instagram post, using the offensive “kn” slur to replace the original lyrics in “Kumbaya.”
West was afterwards blocked from Instagram for 24 hours after the debacle and was banned from performing at the Grammys.
Earlier this week, despite her tears, Noah defended the west, argues that the rapper shouldn’t just be written off without dialogue because of his recent online activities.
“I said advise Kanye not to terminate Kanye,” Noah tweeted on Sunday.
