Last month Demi Lovato slashed $500,000 off the asking price of her Hollywood Hills home where she suffered an overdose in July.
However buyers still aren’t lining up to buy the Sober hitmaker’s luxury four-bedroom pad, which boasts an infinity pool, bar, covered gazebo and media room, and was originally listed for $9,495,000.
Demi Lovato struggles to sell $9m mansion where she overdosed despite slashing price $500k… with her renovations making home a tough sell; she is seen in May 2018

In addition, a security fence around the property stands outside the lot’s border, taking in some city land. So much city land is enclosed, that it even includes a street light.
These issues, along with a landslide at a neighbouring property that has yet to be corrected, have put off potential buyers.
Demi, 26, entered rehab in July shortly after being found unconscious at the mansion, which she bought in 2016.

The property was targeted by would-be burglars in August shortly after Demi entered rehab with police discovering plans to raid the home from electronic communications.
Thieves also broke in at the start of 2017, shortly after it was featured in a news bulletin after it was damaged in a mudslide.
Demi said at the time: ‘They showed pictures of my house. I was so p***ed. If a crazed fan studied those, they could break in. They (the burglars) knew I was going to be away.
Room for guests: The property boasts four bedrooms and six bathrooms
Landscaped: Demi had invested $800,000 in renovating the property
‘They had a ladder and climbed to the second floor. My house manager was staying here, and the dogs started barking. She opened the door and saw a man on my balcony, and he ran. My dogs saved the day.’
While her home may be giving her problems, Demi’s recovery is right on track – and she is now 90 days sober.
The singer has been receiving treatment in rehab since she overdosed and her mother Dianna De La Garza says she is ‘proud’ of her daughter for working on her sobriety.

Speaking on Maria Menounos’ Sirius XM show, Dianna said: ‘She has 90 days and I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction being a disease is work. It’s very hard and there are no short cuts.’
Dianna also admitted she is unsure of what caused her daughter to relapse.
She said: ‘I can’t really say for sure. I really don’t know.’
Dianna previously admitted she was still ‘shaken’ by the former X Factor judge’s overdose, but said her daughter is now ‘happy’ and ‘healthy’ as she works toward her sobriety.

She said: ‘It’s still a really difficult thing to talk about. I literally start to shake a little bit when I start to remember what happened that day. [Demi’s assistant called and] said, Demi overdosed. So, I was in shock. I didn’t know what to say. It was just something that I never, ever expected to hear, as a parent, about any of my kids.
‘I just feel like the reason she’s alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day when everybody found out what was happening. I don’t think she would be here if it hadn’t been for those prayers and the good doctors and Cedars-Sinai. They were the best. I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to save her life.
‘She’s happy. She’s healthy. She’s working on her sobriety, and she’s getting the help she needs. That in itself encourages me about her future and about the future of our family.’
Problems: A gate around the property includes some city land, according to a new report
