Chris Stapleton buys new home near friend Justin Timberlake


Pals Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton are now neighbors – the new dad has just bought a pad in exclusive Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee.

Timberlake moved in in 2015 after paying $4 million for a lavish spread, and now the country star, who recently became a dad of five, has also snapped up a property – for a little over $5.6 million, according to The Tennessean.

The area has been home to a host of stars with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood, and Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood either owning or previously owning estates there.

Timberlake and Stapleton’s friendship dates back a few years – they performed Tennessee Whiskey together at the 2015 CMA Awards and Chris featured on Justin’s song Say Something.
