Christina Aguilera Selling Beverly Hills Home

Last Updated Apr 26, 2011 4:41 PM EDT

Talk about a tough year. Last October, Christina Aguilera announced a high profile split from her husband of five years, music producer Jordan Bratman, and the headlines have grown increasingly embarrassing.

In early February, the "Genie in a Bottle" singer flubbed the lyrics to the national anthem in a high profile performance at Super Bowl XLV.

On March 1, Aguilera and new boyfriend Matt Rutler were arrested for public intoxication and driving under the influence, respectively. Rumors that the singer may have a serious drinking problem regularly grab headlines on TMZ, PopEater and other celebrity gossip outlets.

And then there's the lawsuit surrounding Aguilera's hit single, "Ain't No Other Man."
Christina Aguilera's personal life may not be going well, but professionally, things are looking up. Xtina recently inked a deal to take the fourth judge's chair on NBC's upcoming talent show, "The Voice," debuting April 26. And, if all goes to plan, the singer stands to make a tidy profit on the sale of the Beverly Hills Mansion that she, Bratman and two year-old son Max, once called home.

The property on Doheny Road, has a pretty impressive celebrity pedigree. Before Aguilera assumed ownership, it belonged to Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne and was used as the set for The Osbournes, the family's MTV reality show smash.

The "Beautiful" chanteuse is listing the six bedroom, nine bath house at $13.5 million. The single family home was built in 1988 and measures over 10,000 square feet. In addition to the standard celebrity accoutrements (i.e. gym and an amazing pool) the property also features some outside the box amenities such as a beauty salon, gift wrapping area and screening room.
Given the ostentatious leanings of the previous occupants, it should come as no surprise that the home's decor bears a gothic, Alice in Wonderland-like aesthetic. That said, any fabulously wealthy rockstars looking to make an offer may be interested in the paradoxically family-friendly nature of the surroundings. One of the bedrooms is a fanciful nursery (pictured right), and the outdoor pool boasts an adjacent waterslide.
