Mr Packer purchased the Holmby Heights property for nearly $25 million below the asking price of $115 million, reported London’s The Sun.
Devito and his then wife actor Rhea Perlman had lived in the home 21 years before selling it in 2015 for about $27 million.

It was then bought by property developers who sold it on to Mr Packer.
It is believed Mr Packer decided several months ago to purchase a home in Los Angeles to be closer to his children who live in California with their mother Erica Packer.
