JLS star Oritsé Williams FINALLY sells fire-damaged £3m mansion that belonged to Ronnie Corbett for just £500k | The Sun

JLS singer Oritsé Williams has finally sold his derelict £3million mansion after it was damaged by fire – for just £500,000.

The Beat Again hitmaker, 35, had been trying to sell the five-bedroom house, previously owned by comedian Ronnie Corbett, when the blaze broke out.

It happened just a week after the singer was cleared of raping a fan but police closed an arson investigation due to a lack of evidence.

The property stood derelict before it was eventually sold.

Land Registry records show the new buyers paid just £500,000 for the pad, £2.5million less than what Oritsé paid for it and £1.25million less than what he wanted for it.

More than 60 firefighters battle to save the home following the fire in June, 2019, and London Fire Brigade said 80 per cent of the second floor had been wiped out.

No-one was hurt with Oritsé and his girlfriend AJ Azari not living there at the time.

Photos taken by a rambler and posted to Instagram showed the mansion falling apart with its roof collapsing, windows smashed and gutted interior.

Weeds were seen growing through the windows and up the outside of the Croydon property, with algae in the pool.
