VANDERPUMP Rules star James Kennedy has dropped over $1million on a new house in Los Angeles, The U.S. Sun can exclusively report.
James Kennedy, 31, upgraded his home after living with his girlfriend Ally Lewber, 27, in a nearby apartment, which was featured on this season of Vanderpump Rules.
According to real estate records obtained by The U.S. Sun, the deejay officially purchased the Burbank, California, property on March 15 for $1.35million.
Records also show he took out a loan of $1.08million to complete the new home purchase.
The same day the transaction went through, his two-bedroom apartment on Wilshire Boulevard was listed for rent for $5,345 per month.
James’ new home has over 1,300 square feet of space and has three bedrooms and two custom-designed bathrooms.
The home, per the listing, is “redesigned and reimagined” and has all-new roofing, windows, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and outdoor fencing.
Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the property comes with a long private driveway that leads up to a detached garage.
“The art of entertaining” was kept in mind when renovating the space that also features an “artfully crafted custom kitchen” and a “tastefully designed living room.”
The best part of the home is that it includes a breathtaking backyard that has an inground pool, a spacious patio with a barbecue area, and a lot of space surrounded by trees.

James and Ally have given VPR fans a peek into their apartment this season.
During a home tour, the couple showed off their bedroom that had a “Tulum vibe” and lots of plants.
The nearly 1,600-square-foot apartment had a large walk-in closet and a cozy balcony.
“Ally doesn’t cook at all. I do all the cooking,” James bragged while showing off the massive kitchen.
The pair weren’t shy when it came to showing off their expensive features like a $1,500 beanbag, a Restoration Hardware blanket, and James’ “spaceship” office where he had all his DJ equipment.
NEW VPR HOMES
James isn’t the only one who purchased a new home recently.
The U.S. Sun previously reported Lala Kent purchased a new $1.35million Palm Springs mansion in March, right next to Scheana Shay’s vacation home.
Scheana, for her part, and her husband Brock Davies began renting their $1.2million Marina Del townhouse in July 2022.
Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz both moved into new apartments post-divorce after selling their $2.45million marital home.
Meanwhile, Raquel Leviss is also living in a small apartment – where her ex-friends used to hang out – after her split from ex-fiancé James Kennedy.
Finally, exes Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are still sharing their $2million Los Angeles home amid Tom’s affair with Raquel.
THE BEST IS YET TO COME
Bravo fans have been watching Scandoval unfold during new episodes of Vanderpump Rules.
Up until now, the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman has been lying about getting close to Raquel to his castmates.
In a clip for May 3rd’s episode, Tom, 39, covered up the model’s sleepover while Ariana was out of town.
After the Something About Her co-founder asked if anything interesting happened when she was gone, Tom admitted he invited his friends, including Raquel, to stay over at his place.
Raquel seemed nervous when she revealed: “We went to the jacuzzi. I stayed the night and I slept on the couch.”
Ariana jokingly said: “You don’t have to sleep on the couch!”
Tom and his friends though lied about Raquel sleeping over for the night.
At the end of the clip, he admitted in the confessional: “We just thought maybe it would be better if everyone didn’t know that little detail.
“I was going to fully tell Ariana, but we should have told the truth.”
Then, for what’s to come in the season 10 finale clip, airing on May 17, Tom and Ariana get into a screaming match over Raquel.
The reality star tried to explain that he and his new lover were just “really good friends.”
This caused an eruption from Ariana, who screamed in response: “I don’t give a f**k about f***king Raquel! Your friendship is f**king bulls**t!”
Tom turned defensive, snapping back: “No it’s not!”
The couple had been together for nine years before the affair came to light.
