Gaga No Longer Controls Her Home

Lady Gaga recently got engaged to actor Taylor Kinney.

MALIBU—Singer Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, 28, better known by her stage name, Lady Gaga, has given her father, Joseph Germanotta, complete control of her pricey Malibu estate.

Built in 2005, the massive, six-acre Mediterranean-style property is enclosed in a private gated community.

Gaga reportedly dished out $24 million for the estate last October.

Included in the five-bedroom, 12-bathroom home’s 10,270 square feet of living space are two bowling lanes, a wine cellar that can contain 800 bottles, a home theater, a game room, a safe room, a gym—and several chandeliers to add to the opulence.

In addition to beautiful Pacific Ocean views, the backyard boasts a saltwater swimming pool with a spa, an eight-stall stable, a Dressage arena, a Bocce court and a guesthouse.

By giving her father the “power of attorney,” Gaga essentially gave her father the power to represent or act on her behalf with regards to the estate. He has the ability to make decisions regarding the property, even against his daughter’s wishes.

Gaga explained her rationale in a December 2 interview on the Howard Stern Show. She said that she trusts her father’s advice more than anyone else’s, and she also noted that his advice is free.
