Original story (February 14, 2014): Residents, limo drivers, un-graffitied walls, and mop buckets of Atlanta: You've been warned. Justin Bieber reportedly has his sights set on the Georgia capital, as TMZ reveals.
Sources tell the site that Justin has "fallen in love with the city all over again" while partying with Diddy, T.I., and Rick Ross in Hotlanta — and that he's looking at houses in the area.
(In case you've managed to live a Bieber-free life, the 19-year-old pop star lived in the ATL when he first moved to the states from Canada.)
According to the insiders, the Biebs is even talking to T.I. and Rick about location, location, location — trying to decide where to put down his roots.
In addition to the nostalgia factor, Justin is reportedly sweet on Atlanta because of its relative lack of paparazzi. (We're sure that'll change.)
Justin's current bachelor pad is a huge mansion in Calabasas, California, where he has basically made enemies of his neighbors with his partying, speeding, and egg-throwing.
As TMZ touts, the Believe singer has also checked out properties in Hidden Valley, California. (We hear they make good ranch dressing there.)
Update (February 17, 2014): TMZ reports that the Biebs has a finalist in his mansion search — and this one is on Blackland Road in Atlanta's pricey Buckhead area — which is also home to Usher and Young Jeezy.
The house's 16,000 square feet boast seven bedrooms. And the asking price is a cool $10.95 million.
The site also reports that Justin has a strict set of criteria for his search: The house should be 1) invisible from the street, 2) 10,000 square feet or more, and 3) $4 to $10 million.
