Jennifer Lopez splashes out on 28m Bel Air home

Jennifer Lopez has splashed out $28 million on a new Bel Air home.

The 46-year-old actress and singer bought the eight-acre estate - which comes with a lake and a beach - from actress Sela Ward, who originally wanted $40 million for the property.

TMZ also reports that the house is 13,000 square feet and can be accessed by walking across a covered bridge.

Last year Jennifer put her Hidden Hills home on the market for $17 million but dropped the price to $12.5m earlier this year.

She originally snapped the home up in 2010 for $8.2 million when she was still married to Marc Anthony.

Jennifer reportedly first decided to sell the property because it was too far from the studios she was taping 'American Idol' in.

A source said: "She felt it was too far from where the studios are. To go to the set of 'American Idol' is like an hour drive. It just became too much."

However, 'American Idol' has recently finished and Jennifer is now being kept busy with a Las Vegas residency.

'Jennifer Lopez: All I Have' is schedule to run at The Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino until December and while it has been a huge success so far, she admitted that when she performed the whole thing together for the first time with her dancers, they ended up throwing up.

She said: "I love what I do. When I put it together, I thought I'd put it together section by section and then I thought this is a great section, this is a great section, this is a great section.

"And then all of a sudden we had all these sections and when we did them back to back all the dancers were throwing up and it was so hard and I was like, 'Oh my God! What have I done?' But then everybody was like, 'It's amazing!'"
