"Malcolm in the Middle" teen actor Justin Berfield is buying the "Newlyweds" home of divorcing Hollywood couple Jessica Simpson
and Nick Lachey. Berfield is 19 and single. He plays the bullying middle child Reese on Fox Television's "Malcolm in the Middle."
The sales price wasn't disclosed by Berfield publicist Hope Diamond (!!!), but it was listed for $3.75 million.
Simpson publicist Rob Shuter announced yesterday that the Calabasas home (30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles) was for sale.
The Mediterranean-style 5-bedroom, 6,500-square foot home includes a screening room and music studio. It served as the backdrop for the hit MTV show "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica."
Nick and Jess announced their split back in November, with Jessica officially filing for divorce less than a month later.
