Singer Whitney Houston is selling the luxury five-bedroom property – where she wed Bobby Brown in 1992 – for just $2.5m (€1.7m), less than half its estimated worth of $5.6m (€3.8m).
The 46-year-old ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer - who currently lives in Los Angeles with daughter Bobbi after divorcing Bobby in 2007 - has not lived in the New Jersey house for some time.
During the last years of their marriage, Whitney and Bobby were based in Atlanta.
She nearly lost the house – which boasts a four-car garage, three fireplaces, walk-in closets, a bar and skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows - in 2006 after a combination of failing to pay taxes and her being sued for $1.04m (€710,440) by her mortgage company. The lawsuit was eventually resolved.
Whitney is not the only star set to lose money on a property sale.
British singer Robbie Williams is selling his lavish estate in Wiltshire, UK, for £1m (€1.1m) less than he paid for it.
After just eight months in England, the 'Bodies' hitmaker and his girlfriend Ayda Field - who bought the 18th century Wiltshire house for £8.5m (€9.46m) in February - have slashed the estate's price so they can get back to sunny Los Angeles as quickly as possible.
An insider said: "Robbie is desperate to get things moving quickly rather than hang around just to get a bit more money. Being settled back in the States quickly with Ayda is more important to him.
"He's already got a few people interested in the mansion."
