Lifestyle Home Selena Gomez Talks Living in Late Tom Petty's Former Home: 'There's So Much History' The "Rare" singer bought her property for nearly $5 million earlier this year By Ally Mauch Published on August 28, 2020 02:17 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Tibrina Hobson/Getty; Gary Gershoff/Getty Selena Gomez is opening up about how she feels living in the late rocker Tom Petty’s former home. During an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the 28-year-old artist said she "always" thinks about her home's previous owner, particularly when in her music studio, which is still being finished. "It's that spirit, and knowing Stevie Nicks was here," Gomez said. "There's so much history, so when I'm in that zone, I feel like it's very special." The "Rare" singer purchased the home, in Los Angeles' Encino neighborhood, for $4.9 million this past April, E! News reported at the time.
