Robert Pattinson buys a mansion

The Twilight star has splashed out on a plush $8 million house in Los Angeles.

The 25-year-old actor is believed to just moved into the property, despite having purchased the three-bedroom mansion back in September.

Robert Pattinson's new home is located in the fashionable Los Feliz area of LA.

'It is a gorgeous property with sprawling grounds which include a solar-heated swimming pool,' a source purportedly revealed.

'There are three big bedrooms and three bathrooms, and the whole place is walled, gated and has a state-of-the-art security system.'

Pattinson's new film Bel Ami is currently in cinemas nationwide.
