Billie Joe Puts House Up For Sale

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong has put his Californian beach home on the market for a cool $1.9million (£1.06million). The singer, who was admitted to rehab in October after smashing his guitar in a furious onstage rant prompted by organisers of a US festival trying to cut short the band's set, bought the property back in 2006 for $1.7millioon, reports NME. According to property records, Billie Joe and his wife Adrienne re-built the property from "the studs up" within a year of buying the house, which is situated just a block from the ocean in Newport Beach, California. Meanwhile, Blink-182's Mark Hoppus recently spoke out about Billie Joe Armstrong's stint in rehab. "I don't know exactly what's going on. I saw what happened onstage, and then I saw the announcement, like, two days later or whatever it was, that he was checking himself in to get help," he said. He added: "I think that's great if it's what he needs, and I wish them all the best. They're an amazing band and really cool guys, and I hope that all is good in their world." Armstrong is set to remain in rehab until 2013 with many of Green Day's live dates affected by the frontman's unavailability. The band have brought forward the release of new album "Tre!" to compensate fans who will be unable to see them performing live.

    I don't get why everyone always says, "Extremely violent and furious rant". It really didn't seem that bad to me. Sure, he sounded kind of drunk and used the F word a few times... but is smashing an instrument and cursing at a concert really so shockingly violent?

    I love Green Day + Billie Joe, but is this news? This isn't a real estate website.

    I love how everyone knows him by Billie Joe instead of saying his whole name.

    I'm sitting about two minutes away from that place. Meh. No back yard. No front yard for that matter. Bumper to bumper traffic. When the summer comes, forget it. People everywhere. Turds like Dennis Rodman for neighbors...

    For this area it is not. People pay $1 million for crappy small condos around here. My old boss's house was around $5 million and it wasn't that big, but it did have its own dock for his yacht.

    "I don't know exactly what's going on. I saw what happened onstage, and then I saw the announcement, like, two days later or whatever it was, that he was checking himself in to get help," he said. Thanks for that quote UG. It added so much to the story.
