If you had millions of dollars would you move out? These people are making big political moves, raking in the dough and walking the red carpet — so why are these celebrities still living at home?


In-laws can be a lot of help when you’re growing your family. “The Jersey Shore” star Snooki, her husband Jionni and their baby all live at home with Jionni’s parents. And now tha Snooki’s pregnant again, we have a feeling they’ll be living with the in-laws for a while longer.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Both Kanye and Kim love living with Kris Jenner. Kim loves being close to her mom and her sisters and Kanye has loved family life extra hard since he lost his mother in 2007. The two are in the process of building their $11 million dollar home, but they’ve been dragging the move-out process for so long that we’re starting to suspect that they want to stay put.

Bradley Cooper

The 2011 Sexiest Man Alive lives with his mother, and it somehow makes him even sexier. After Bradley Cooper’s father died in 2011, his mother came to live with him. Brad says, “My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other.”

Jennifer Lawrence

Twenty-three-year-old Jennifer Lawrence still lives at home with her parents in Louisville Kentucky because she’s not ready to live the Hollywood life:

“Sadly, I cannot live in Los Angeles anymore. I don’t understand how actors can do it. You have no life here.

You are followed everywhere. It’s not like that anywhere else in the world. I don’t want to stay in L.A. and start thinking that’s reality – because it’s very far from normal.”

Rafael Nadal

Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal is worth $215 million but he still lives with his mother and sister. The three of them became super-close after his parents’ painful separation in 2009.

Selena Gomez

How old were you when you flew the nest? At 22, Selena Gomez is more than comfortable living with her mom and dad. But now that she’s earned enough money to buy her own house, she’s thinking of moving out.

Taylor Lautner

Twenty-two-year-old “Twilight” star Taylor Lautner still lives with his parents just outside of L.A. — in the bedroom he grew up in.

Dev Patel

The “Slumdog Millionaire” star says living at home with his parents — and bickering with his sister — helps keep him grounded as he navigates Hollywierd.

Demi Lovato

For 21-year-old Demi Lovato, home has been a place of healing. Now that her drug and alcohol abuse problems are in the past, the Disney star is enjoying the supportive nature of family life.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag

“The Hills” star Heidi Montag and her husband Spencer Pratt made themselves famous with their out of control spending habits — like spending $10 million in a single shopping trip.

Now the couple is broke and living with Spencer Pratt’s parents in California while they learn to manage their money a little bit better.

How close are you with your mother? These two stars are so tight that not only do they live with one another, they filmed a reality series together.

Nadya Suleman

We’re amazed that Octomom ever lived alone with eight kids. But now the tabloid sensation is back living with her parents — which are probably still not enough extra help with eight kids.

Kristen Stewart

Breakups are rough. And when Kristen Stewart ended her relationship with her “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson, she moved back home for some emotional support to help mend a broken heart.


Aly Raisman

When 20-year-old Olympic gold medalist and “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Aly Raisman isn’t on camera, she lives at home with her parents and three younger siblings.

    In fairness, Snooky and Jionni are having a house built and are staying in an apartment that is in the basement of his parents’ house. It’s not like they are just living in the basement. It’s an actual apartment. Plus, she’s not nearly as bad of a mother as people want to think.

  • Tee Elyse

    I was 22 when I moved out, but only because I was already paying my momma high a$$ rent prices! LOL!

  • Shannin Naidu

    Selena Gomez moved out right?

  • Nataly_G

    Obviously these people make more money than the average person, so it’s more about spending time with people who truly love them. Not about impressing a bunch of other broke people who are upset that they do not have the option of living with family.

  • Trisha_B

    Isn’t there a difference between living w/ mom & mom living w/ you?!

  • IllyPhilly

    Can’t they just love their mothers enough to want them around? It’s a choice.

  • chanela

    • Shannin Naidu
