Embattled James Corden selling $9.7M LA home: report

Embattled comedian James Corden may be about to offload his $9.7 million home in the wake of being called out for abusing waitstaff at Balthazar’s in NYC.

LA realtor Alicia Drake was seen at Corden’s Brentwood mansion Thursday with Million Dollar Listing LA star James Harris — and later told the Daily Mail that the home has been placed up for sale.

“It won’t be listed — it’s a private sale,” Drake told the outlet. 

Harris, 38, however, said he was just at Corden’s home for a social visit. His wife, Valeria, is friends with Corden’s producer wife Julia, 46.

Friends of Corden, 44, have spoken in the past of his desire to return to his native UK. He’s set to finish his final season of the “The Late Late Show” this spring.

Corden bought the five-bedroom Brentwood home in 2017 after first living in a Pacific Palisades rental.

The 8,600 square foot mansion has seven bathrooms, a wood-paneled library, a media room and a private gym.

The realtors’ visit to Corden’s home came after a restaurant row that went viral after Balthazar boss Keith McNally wrote a damning Instagram post labeling him a “tiny cretin of a man” and the “most abusive customer” in the bistro’s 25-year history.

He then listed two examples of Corden’s alleged abusive antics. These reportedly included complaining that there was egg white in his egg yolk and then berating the staff after they accidentally remade the order with home fries instead of salad.

In the post, McNally announced that he’d “86’d” Corden from Balthazar for life.

McNally then rescinded the ban just hours later after the talk show star called up to apologize for his behavior.

“James Corden just called me and apologized profusely,” McNally wrote in a Monday Instagram post regarding Corden’s purported meal culpa. “Having f – – ked up myself more than most people, I strongly believe in second chances.”

But Corden revived the spat in an interview with The New York Times on Oct. 20.

“I haven’t done anything wrong, on any level,” Corden said.

The “Carpool Karaoke” creator then added, “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.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Corden claimed he hadn’t “really read” McNally’s now-viral comments about him on social media. “I think I’m probably going to have to talk about it on Monday’s show,” Corden said. “My feeling, often, is, never explain, never complain. But I’ll probably have to talk about it.”
