Not Welcome in Atlanta
Justin Bieber is ready for a new neighborhood — and not in California. The teenage superstar is house hunting 2,000 miles away in Atlanta, GA. According to People.com Bieber is interested in a 16,000 sq ft house with 7 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. Also,this house would give him a lot of privacy because it’s filled with large trees and surrounded by a huge gate. It also features a 70 foot pool, a home theater, a wine cellar, an elevator and a home gym. The Tuxedo Park neighborhood that the home sits in is considered the Ferrari of real estate in Atlanta. It is also reported that he wants to move to Atlanta to be near his mentor Usher.
While this home shows that Bieber is clearly looking for luxury, he reportedly also has other specific requirements for his new home. TMZ reports that he wants a home that can’t be visible from the street — preferably on five-plus acres, with a minimum of 10,000 square feet and listed between $4 and $10 million. His current home in Calabasas was just over 10,000 square feet. Although it’s in the gated neighborhood of The Estates at The Oaks, Bieber is looking for more privacy. In The Oaks, Bieber was criticized for speeding, egging homes and throwing wild parties.
It was reported on CNN Harold White, a retiree and longtime resident in Buckhead is worried about unwanted attention if Beiber does decide to move into Buckhead. Buckhead is known for its vast old-money mansions. White organized a protest in front of the mansion Bieber is thinking about purchasing. "We're concerned he'll bring the wrong type of element into a quiet, residential area," he said. "It is our position that a person with his means could certainly find a neighborhood more suited to his "eclectic" lifestyle.
White's wife even started a Facebook page to organize the protest. It warns that "Justin Bieber's relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community. Some can't even let their children play in the driveway without fear; he has raced vehicles under the influence, before. What's to say he won't do it again?"
Bieber has had several encounters with law enforcement authorities in recent months. He was recently arrested in Toronto, accused of assaulting his limousine driver in December. He also faces charges of drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving on an expired license after being stopped by police in Miami Beach, Florida, last month. The Los Angeles County district attorney is considering whether to charge Bieber with felony vandalism in the egging of a neighbor's house on January 9.
