The Los Angeles home which he shared with third wife Megan Wallace Cunningham boasted guest cottages, a recording studio, swimming pool and library, was first on offer for £4.7 million in January 2019.

Estate agents described it as “a one of a kind private compound” and records show it was sold last month.
