The singer, known for his recurring role on the The Voice UK, sold his LA mansion after his beloved wife Lady Melinda Rise Woodward (known as Linda) died in 2016. Sir Tom said at the time the gorgeous home held too many memories. He told the Sunday Mirror: “That was our house in LA. I didn’t feel comfortable there any more.”

The house was completely decorated by Sir Tom’s late wife Linda.

Leopard print rugs can be seen across the hallways and in the lounge.

Wood framed paintings and photos line most the walls along with dark wood furniture.

The living room also included two giraffe statues which were stood either side of the white, marble fireplace.

White leather sofas with chintzy, pink cushions perfectly complimented the heavy, wood furniture.

The Welsh singer bought the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom property in 1998 for £2.1million.

He then managed to sell the property for three times the amount he paid for it.

The property was on the market with Sotheby’s International Realty.

Sir Tom managed to sell the home with almost all the furniture except for some of his own photographs and artwork.

He said: “Apart from the photographs and some artwork, the man who bought it wanted the whole thing, furniture and everything.

“This was great for me because I wouldn’t have been able to put all that stuff into a flat.”

Sir Tom has since moved into a flat in London.

Linda reportedly insisted he return to the UK following her death to make sure he was close to friends and family.

He added: “She said, ‘You should get a flat in London’. She said, ‘You should go home’.”
