LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'The Late Late Show' host James Corden is reportedly selling off his Los Angeles mansion amid an allegation of abusing a waitstaff at Balthazar restaurant in New York. The $9.7 million property is unlikely to go under the hammer as it is going to be a private sale.

It was suggested by LA realtor Alicia Drake, who was seen at Corden’s Brentwood residence on Thursday, October 20, with 'Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles' star James Harris. She told Daily Mail later that his house is up for sale. “It won’t be listed — it’s a private sale,” Drake stated.

When Harris was reached regarding this, the 38-year-old said he was at Corden’s place for a social visit, since, his wife, Valeria, is a friend of the ‘Carpool Karaoke’ host's producer wife Julia Carey, 46. 

Corden, 44, has often spoken to his friends about his wish to return home to the United Kingdom. Currently, he’s gearing up to wrap up his last season of ‘The Late Late Show’ set to air this spring. Corden previously lived in a Pacific Palisades rental, before buying the five-bedroom Brentwood home in 2017. This is an 8,600-square-foot mansion with seven bathrooms, a wood-paneled library, a private gym, and a media room, reports New York Post.

Corden was recently accused of abusing a waitstaff at Balthazar, following which the restaurant owner Keith McNally wrote an Instagram post slamming Corden for his rude behavior. He called him a "tiny cretin of a man" and the "most abusive customer" in the 25-year history of the bistro.

McNally also listed two occasions where Corden lost his cool and slurred the staff, where he first complained about having an egg white in his egg yolk and then degraded the staff after they mistakenly remade the order with fries instead of salad. In the post, McNally further declared that Corden has been “86’d” from Balthazar for life.

Though, the owner had a change of heart and lifted the ban a few hours later and claimed the comedian apologized and there was no reason to keep him away from Balthazar. “James Corden just called me and apologized profusely,” McNally wrote on his Instagram on Monday, October 20. “Having f – – ked up myself more than most people, I strongly believe in second chances,” he added.

Just when it seemed all is done and dusted, Corden renewed the spat claiming, “I haven’t done anything wrong, on any level,” in an interview with The New York Times on Thursday, October 20.

He went on, “I feel so Zen about the whole thing. Because I think it’s so silly. I just think it’s beneath all of us. It’s beneath you. It’s certainly beneath your publication.”
