WITH Kim Kardashian and Kanye West moving into their neighborhood, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. wasted no time in moving out!
“The moment that Sarah and Freddie heard Kim and Kanye bought a home in their Bel-Air neighborhood, they put their house up for sale,” said a source.
“They’re now living in the more laid-back Mandeville Canyon area of Los Angeles.”
The “Crazy Ones” star, 36, and 37-year-old Freddie – parents of daughter Charlotte, 4, and year-old son Rocky – had lived in a seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom home in the secluded enclave since 2001.
But early this year, newly engaged reality TV sexpot Kim and rapper Kanye – parents of 4-month-old daughter North – plunked down $10.75 million for a nearby property.
“Kimye” quickly began a huge renovation project, gutting the existing home and expanding its already palatial 10,000 square feet to a massive 14,000.
“A collective groan went up in the neighborhood over fears that Kim and Kanye were turning their house into a tacky nouveau riche McMansion,” said the source.
“The remodeling alone is a huge headache. Tractors and construction crews start making a racket at the crack of dawn, and now photographers are constantly lurking around.
“Sarah was cringing at the thought of reality TV cameras intruding on their peace and quiet, not to mention the prospects of Kanye terrorizing everyone with his angry rants.
“She also figured that the presence of Kim and Kanye would devalue surrounding properties.
“Rather than deal with the headaches, Sarah suggested to Freddie that they move.”
The happy family has since settled into a $6.1 million six-bedroom, five-bath
home closer to the beach. Now that they’re safely away from Kim and Kanye, the only problem for Sarah and “Scooby-Doo” star Freddie is that she’s so busy with her “Crazy Ones” hit sitcom. He wishes she could spend more time with him and the kids.
“Freddie and Sarah are as normal and down to earth as two Hollywood actors can be,” said the source. “They’re so thankful to have escaped the Kimye circus.”
