He Took a Hit in Selling His House
Although Valderrama has always been a smart cookie, he took a bit of a financial hit when he sold off his house at Tarzana, Los Angeles some time back.
He had bought the gated 2.2-acre property for $3.525 million way back in 2005 and lived a party-fueled lifestyle there until he decided to sell it in 2013.
