Jim Parsons Buys Robert Pattinson’s HomeBy: Daryl Nelson - January 18, 2014
It’s been well over a year since Kristen Stewart cheated on her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson, but now it seems the actor is moving on, as he just sold the house they shared to Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory.”
Reportedly, the house was only on the market for one week until it was scooped up by Parsons for a cool $6.35 million. The home is 4,026 square feet, has 3 bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a library, an office, a spa area, plenty of fireplaces and a huge swimming pool, and it used to be owned by ex-hoop star Kareem-Abdul Jabbar. Parsons plans to move in to the home with his partner Todd Spiewak.
Some might wonder why Pattinson needed to sell the home and why he just couldn’t move on with his life at the same location. While others might believe the best thing for him to do is to make a complete break from his former life with Stewart and choose a new place to live.
Since the couple split, both have done a good job of not speaking about it to the media, aside from a few brief mentions when the incident first occurred. However, in July of 2012, Stewart gave a public apology to Pattinson in a statement.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” she said. “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I live him, I’m so sorry.”
Which of course made the cheating scandal even bigger. It probably would have been better if she kept quiet and let the story lose steam on its own.
But what was Pattinson’s and Stewart’s loss is clearly now Parsons’ gain, when he beat out the other buyers who were interested in the house. And the fact that it sold in just a week, shows how highly coveted it was, so easily, Parsons came out the winner in all of this.
