The asking price for The Weeknd’s California mansion has been slashed by $3 million.

The “Blinding Lights” singer originally listed his 12,500-square-foot Hidden Hills estate at nearly $25 million in June, but hasn’t had any luck closing the deal.

Now, the Canadian singer’s luxurious home is up for sale at just under $22 million, still $4 million more than what he purchased it for in 2017, according to Robb Report.

The Weeknd’s compound has 9 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, plus a massive climate-controlled wine cellar that has disco-style LED lighting, according to the luxury-lifestyle magazine.

The home also features a five-car garage decked out with LED lights, white marble fireplaces in the living and dining rooms, and a gourmet kitchen with state of the art stainless appliances.

Other features include a home theater, a gym, a large pool and a full-size basketball court.

Pat Robertson Tells Trump: ‘You’ve Had Your Day And It’s Time To Move On’

Pat Robertson has a unexpected message for President Donald Trump: He should forget about overturning the election.

On “The 700 Club” Monday, the evangelical leader and former Republican presidential candidate discussed Trump’s slim and unrealistic chances of nullifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win and suggested the president face reality.

Robertson praised Trump’s ability to raise money and draw crowds but also said the president “lives in an alternate reality,” adding, “He doesn’t lie ― to him, that’s the truth.”

Robertson then conceded that Trump is “very erratic,” which makes dealing with him “a mixed bag” before suggesting the president’s day is done.

“I think it will be well to say, ’You’ve had your day and it’s time to move on,’” he said.

While Robertson conceded Biden was going to be the next president, he didn’t sound confident that the president-elect would be in office long: “I also think we’ll be seeing a President Kamala Harris not too long after the inauguration of President Biden.”

The fact that a top evangelical leader actually suggested Trump should move on didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter.


Israel’s Knesset on Brink of Disbanding After Budget Delay Nixed

Israel’s government appeared to be hours from collapse early Tuesday after parliament narrowly rejected a bill to defer a midnight deadline for approving the country’s budget.

If a spending plan isn’t passed by that cutoff, the Knesset automatically dissolves and a fourth election in two years will be called with the country in the midst of a coronavirus-related health and economic crisis. By a vote of 49-47, lawmakers rejected the bill to put off the deadline until Dec. 31.

A March 16 election date has been preliminarily approved, but political commentators have said the vote is more likely to be held March 23.

The budget crisis erupted after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu balked at honoring his coalition agreement to approve a spending plan through 2021. A budget for this year alone would give him leeway to bring down the government over the 2021 spending plan, before Defense Minister Benny Gantz is to take over as premier next November under their power-sharing agreement.

Gantz came under stiff pressure from within his Blue and White party to make no further concessions to Netanyahu to keep their tense seven-month-old partnership alive. Among other things, Netanyahu sought to influence law-enforcement appointments as he prepares to take the stand in his corruption trial in February, Israeli media reported.
