Gibson and his ex, Robyn Moore Gibson, first listed the property in March 2010 at $14.5 million but dropped the price multiple times, including in February 2011 to $12.75 million. It's described as "old world hacienda," according to the Times, and features six bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms and several fireplaces along with stone and hardwood floors.

There are also three guesthouses on the property in addition to a gym, tennis court, swimming pool, spa and "two-story entertainment pavilion" that includes a kitchen and fireplace.

The Gibsons, who divorced last year after 31 years of marriage, reportedly bought the property from Rick Springfield and his wife in 1989 for close to $3 million.

Fleiss, who also created ABC's The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad, put his previous Malibu house on the market in July, two months after his marriage to Alexandra Vorbeck ended, for $6.45 million. It sold for $6 million, the Times reported.
