Before putting her house on the market, the former American Idol judge had an estate sale in December — selling shoes, accessories, clothes and memorabilia.
The 4,679 square-foot Mediterranean-style home has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, hardwood floors, a gourmet kitchen, walk-in closets, numerous fireplaces and a private balcony off the master suite.
Host Steve Jones and judge Nicole Sherzinger were also let go from the hit show.
“After talking to Steve, Paula phoned Simon [Cowell] to ask him if the rumors were true, and he admitted that the powers that be at Fox didn’t think she was ‘edgy’ enough to be brought back, but that he was working on trying to convince them to keep her on. And he told her if by some twist of fate he couldn’t save her job, he would line something else up for her soon,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
“It was actually Simon’s lawyer who phoned her two days ago to tell her they made the decision to axe her, and although part of her expected the news, she was shocked.”
