It’s as if the entire and improbably coincidental scenario had been scripted for a reality TV show: An outlandishly-behaved teenager named Justin Bieber flees Los Angeles and his sprawling home for Atlanta to make room for his replacement, the freshly divorced youngest sister of the ubiquitous Kardashian family.

Quick, someone check with TV producer and entertainment industry titan Ryan Seacrest, who brought us “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Maybe this entire house flipping deal between Justin Bieber and Khloe Kardashian was ordered up by the people over at the Nielsen ratings.

Khloe Kardashian has reportedly purchased Bieber’s “grand manor” property inside the exclusive and gated Oaks section of Calabasas — the very home that Bieber purchased in April 2012 for $6.5 million but only after the Biebs was shut out of purchasing a majestic modern home by Ashton Kutcher.

Several sites, including Yahoo! and The Real Estalker, are reporting that they’ve confirmed Kardashian’s purchase of the 7-bedroom, 8-bathroom, 10,000-square-foot mansion. The 1.28-acre property was the scene of some of Bieber’s terrible teen antics, including an egging of a neighbor’s yard, the drug arrest of one of Bieber’s cohorts and, the straw that seems to have ended the Bieb’s “magical” run in Calabasas: A dispute with former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson, who was so concerned about Bieber’s speedy driving habits that he called the police.

Whether Bieber decided he’s had enough of southern California’s limelight, or whether the Hollywood crowd has successfully squeezed Bieber from its hive, it’s probably a good move on everyone’s part.

Bieber has been house hunting in Atlanta (between “arresting” trips to Miami and Panama) and Kardashian has been looking for a new place to set up shop after divorcing NBA player Lamar Odom, so the new arrangement makes sense. Just weeks ago, Kourtney Kardashian and her partner, Scott Disick, purchased Keyshawn Johnson’s custom-built home.

This means two of Kris Kardashian’s daughters  will be within a stone’s throw — or egg toss, as Bieber proved — from each other in Calabasas. Kim Kardashian, meanwhile, is hanging around the Calabasas neighborhood, too. She and her baby with fiance Kanye West are living at Kris Jenner’s home while their Bel-Air mansion is being renovated and redecorated ahead of the big Paris wedding.
