No wonder Leann Rimes is keeping cool in the whole ugly spat between her and Brandy – she’s just splashed out $3 million on a happening pad so that she and her husband (Brandy’s ex-husband) Eddie Cibrian can get back and chill out after a hard day’s slagging off.

The New York Daily News just reported that the latest twist to the tale, which has seen everything from accusations of mental instability, to questions over who should be looking Eddie’s kids, saw Brandy tell the Howard Stern Show that Cibrian was only with Rimes for her money. Well, when you hear about this house you’d sure suggest that money was one of the reasons that Rimes was such a draw to him. It’s mahoosive. Located in Hidden Hills, Los Angeles, the new pad stretches over 2.2 acres of land, but was an absolute, um, snip at £3 million, with the original asking price thought to be getting up towards $5.75 million. The house itself offers around 8,600 square feet of living space, with a four-car garage, BBQ area and outdoor swimming pool also on the grounds.

The Spanish-style mansion has a ridiculous six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, as well as a central staircase, and wooden beams to give the house a rustic look - and that’s not all. As well as the main living quarters, the grounds also have an outdoor dining area, a guest house (!). It sounds amazing to us, though we can predict one guest who won’t be ever welcome.
