Billie Joe Armstrong is making some big changes after his frightening and violent rant at the I Heart Radio concert in Las Vegas last September.
Besides tackling substance abuse issues in rehab, the Green Day frontman and candidate for this year's best profanity-laced tirade has decided to place his adorable little cottage in Newport Beach, Calif. on the market for $1.895 million.
Armstrong bought the vacation home back in 2006, and the listing notes it was rebuilt "from the studs up" a year later. The home now boasts three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, high-end kitchen appliances and a back patio outfitted with an outdoor shower.
While the home may be humble for a Grammy award-winning musician, it's located in the exclusive Peninsula Point neighborhood and less than a block away from the beach. Real estate blogger Real Estalker, who first reported the news, notes that old tax records show the home once spanned 924 square feet of living space, but listing photos indicate the property is bigger now.
Armstrong hails from Northern California, where he has a home base in Piedmont. Currently, Armstrong is "in the middle of some really big things" in rehab, bandmate Mike Dirnt said to Kerrang! magazine. While Armstrong continues to heal, the band has had to cancel several performances, including a headlining gig at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience festival in New Orleans.
"It's killing everyone," continued Dirnt. "Green Day has never been a band that sits still, but sometimes you have to step back and let life go on rather than try to control everything."
