Garden of Eden: This will have been Christina's own private paradise when she stayed at the posh mansion
Given the property market at the moment even celebrities are finding it hard to sell their luxurious estates. 
But Christina Aguilera has just released a few extra pictures in a bid to drum up interest in her $13.5m listed Beverly Hills mansion.

The singer paid $11.5m when she bought the former Osbourne family residence in 2008.

Aguilera's decided to wash her hands of the property last year just weeks after her divorce from Jordan Bratman, and a week after her arrest for public intoxication.

However it has yet to pay off, and has languished on the market.

The Mediterranean-style mansion is described as being decorated with an eclectic mix of Gothic, burlesque and contemporary styles.

The six bedroom and nine bathroom house is awash with pinks and reds, showing The Voice judge is clearly a fan of the style displayed in her old Moulin Rouge soundtrack hit Lady Marmalade.  

Are you reddy? The singer's love of pinks and reds is amply displayed by the foyer's lipstick red chandelier, carpet and curtains

But that is only one of the home's many amenities.

It also come complete with a game room, movie room, a salon area in the giant walk-in closet, and perhaps most self-indulgent of all, a gift-wrapping room. 

There is also an cute children's room which she may have used to have fun with her son Max. 

And there is also the obligatory star requirement of a generous pool, complete with water slide and grotto spa.

But Christina is no doubt looking for a more luxurious home, following claims that she has commanded a fee of $10million to sign on for the third season of TV talent show The Voice.
