Despite being 3,000 miles from our usual turf, we couldn’t resist offering a peek at Morrissey’s lavish limestone bath. Several years ago, he decided that sunny California was a worthy substitute to gloomy Manchester.
But Morrissey isn’t the only celebrity owner of this Hollywood Hills mansion. In fact, the Mediterranean-style house was built by Clark Gable for Carole Lombard, and later owned by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Note to obsessive fans: he’s already moved out. And if Smiths lyrics offer any indication of his future plans, he “would rather not go back to the old house.”
