Chelsea Handler has sold her longtime home in Los Angeles, California.
The comedian's six-bedroom, six-bathroom, 5,572-square-foot residence went for $10.376 million, a small drop from the original listing price of $10.5 million. Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland held the listing.
Handler announced she sold her home on Monday in an Instagram video that featured the star naked and smoking in her hot tub. In the video, she joked about the differences between the "old Chelsea" and the "new and improved Chelsea."
"The new Chelsea just sold this house because the old Chelsea was getting a wee-bit too comfortable," she captioned the video. "The old Chelsea wouldn't have talked about herself in the third person and the new Chelsea doesn't want to either."

In a home tour video with Architectural Digest in December 2019, Handler put her L.A. residence on display as she showed off each room, highlighting the design choices and upgrades she made to the property.
"I've lived here since I think 2010 is what I've been told. It's my first house that I've ever bought," Handler said. "There was just a lot of closed-off spaces and I wanted open spaces and I wanted indoor-outdoor living because why else are we living in California if we don't get all of those things."Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad

Handler explained that she wanted her home to have a "modern feel but didn't want it to be stuffy." She also elaborated on important pieces inside her home, such as her personal art collection (mostly gives from friends) and custom patio furniture on the deck.
"Some nights I like to come out like 5 or 6 o'clock, have a cocktail, and just stare at this hillside," Handler said of her outdoor scenery. "It's a good quieting exercise for my busy little brain."

Ex-Chelsea wonderkid Todd Kane warns club’s young loanees to LEAVE before it’s too late and slams Blues transfer policy
TODD KANE has simple one-word advice for any Chelsea player getting loaned year after year … LEAVE.

But the Premier League giants squandered his talent by loaning him to EIGHT different clubs in seven years.
They rejected bids from other top-flight clubs as well as from Ajax, PSV Eindhoven, Borussia Dortmund and Malaga.
And finally after escaping Chelsea’s clutches at the start of last season without making a single competitive appearance, Kane is picking up the pieces of his career at Loftus Road.
The Blues have 15 players loaned out and Kane is in no doubt what any young players at Chelsea should do if they find themselves are in the same position as he was.
He said: “Leave. I’ve had numerous bids from clubs coming in for me down the years but Chelsea would always just say ‘no’.
“I’d tell any young lad now to move on if anyone is interested in you because if you’re good enough to play for someone else, you’re better off taking that opportunity.
“When I was 19, I was rated as one of the best young right-backs in the country – and had I been at any other Premier League club back then I’d have been playing. Plenty of teams wanted to sign me.”
Chelsea loaned Kane to Preston, Blackburn, Bristol City, Nottingham Forest, Dutch sides Nijmegen and Groningen, Oxford and Hull.

And Kane has had so many disappointments and regrets about how his career has panned out after so much promise.
He wishes he made his loan at then League One club Bristol permanent after they made a £1million bid for him instead of moving to Championship leaders Forest until the end of the season in 2015. He only made eight appearances.
The defender regrets playing in a dead-rubber last game of the season for Nijmegen five years ago – which saw him injure his ACL after Chelsea had told him he was part of their plans the following season.
He recalls sombrely: “The manager told me he was happy for me to miss that game but I insisted on playing. I wish I hadn’t.”
Then there were offers from Ajax, PSV, Borussia Dortmund and Malaga that were all rejected – even after his injury.
And, to rub salt into his wounds, Chelsea failed to sign the necessary paperwork in time for him to sign for Sheffield United – missing the January 2019 transfer deadline.
He said: “I was at Hull on loan and Chris Wilder had been talking to me on the phone about me going there.
“It had all been agreed but Chelsea submitted the paperwork too late because they were busy getting the Gonzalo Higuaín loan from Juventus across the line first.6Todd Kane could have moved to Sheffield United whilst on loan at HullCredit: Getty - Contributor 6Todd Kane earned eight caps for England Under-21 sideCredit: Getty Images - Getty
“I’d have been part of the Sheffield United team that got promoted and could’ve been playing Premier League football there now.”
It is ironic that it was another piece of Chelsea incompetence that finally saw him escape.
Despite not having played for them in seven years, they wanted to activate the extension clause in his contract but MISSED the deadline.
Kane said: “They offered me another year but they were a few days too late under the terms of my contract – so I was able to leave.”
Kane is now in a happy place at another West London club – although it has not been plane sailing.
The right-back admits he did not feel wanted after being in and out of the team last season and at the start of this one.
But after meeting with boss Mark Warburton and director of football Les Ferdinand, he has since been an ever present which has coincided in an upturn in form for the Hoops.
Kane said: “Last season I missed a bit of pre-season which set me back and it was a bit up and down.
“I’d play five or six games and then would be out of the side with me and Angel Rangel being swapped.
“It was difficult for me to adapt because I’m someone who always plays 40 games a season and likes to kick on. If you’re happy on the bench then something is seriously wrong.
“I didn’t have the greatest season but it felt like there were things happening behind the scenes that were keeping me out.
“And I felt at the start of this season I got treated again like last year and was feeling unwanted.6 Most read in FootballLive BlogFOOTBALL NEWS LIVEChelsea to get £260m transfer war chest, Aarons to Man Utd latestRIOT ACTWigan's Funso Ojo believes US Capitol 'riot' may be GOOD for Black Lives MatterTRUE BLUEWillian admits he 'really wanted to stay at Chelsea' before Arsenal transferWAGS TO RICHESTop 10 richest Wags including Georgina & Wanda, but who's worth the most?TZOL TO PLAY FORMan Utd target Tzolis was eyed by Barca and is ranked among top wonderkidsRevealedCITY SLICKERSMan City wages with Ederson, Foden and Cancelo all on less than £80k a week
“So I spoke to Les and the manager and told them my opinion. I said, ‘I’m here to play and if I can’t then I need to find somewhere else because I’m not the sort of player who wants to be sitting around on the bench.’
“I got my opportunity in the game against Cardiff and have been in the side since. I’m back to myself, the team is winning and playing well.
“It took this long to have a proper 15-game run where the club and the supporters can see the real player I am.”
Kane still believes he is good enough to play in the Premier League – and will keep working hard to achieve his goal.
He said: “I’ve had a hard route and a lot of disappointments but if I play well here then maybe I can still get to the level I feel I can reach.”
