According to a report in Us Weekly, the singer-turned-fashion-designer wasn’t deterred by the property’s minor fire on January 17 and made an offer on the 11,000-square-foot mansion in Hidden Hills, Calif. – for close to the $13 million asking price.

“Now, they’re going to have to assess the damage before committing, even though they heard it is pretty minimal.”

Firefighters were called to the home after Sharon revealed she forgot to extinguish a candle before going to bed.
