His marriage to Angelina Jolie only lasted three years, but Billy Bob Thornton lasted much longer with the home he shared with his former wife.
The “Sling Blade” screenwriter and star stayed on for another nine years before listing the Spanish-style home at 801 N Roxbury Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 for $9.995 million. Thornton’s home has been on the market two days and is being shown by appointment only.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Thornton and Jolie purchased the 11,000-square-foot home in 2000 for $3.75 million from Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash. The blood-bonded couple split in 2003, but the quirky actor/writer/blues musician stayed around, making use of the property’s 9-bedroom, 10-bathroom sprawl and its in-home recording studio.
In addition to a grand, two-story living room, enormous dining room and kitchen, the compound includes a pool, tennis court, paddle tennis court, gym and library.
Billy Bob has moved on in love, too. While Angelina and her fiance, Brad Pitt, have six kids, Thornton has one daughter with longtime girlfriend Connie Angland, whom the five-times-married Thornton said he will try to not marry to avoid jinxing the relationship.
