Hide From The Paparazzi In TMZ Honcho Harvey Levin's Rental

TMZ Managing Editor Harvey Levin has put his home up for rent, and one major selling point is that this Hollywood Hills pad is secured to prevent prying eyes, like those of his own staff.

Previously for sale for $5.3 million, Levin's three-bedroom house is now for rent at $20K/month, the L.A. Times reports. Built in 1937, the 3,000-square-foot home at 1136 Doheny Drive comes furnished and has a pool, spa and an over-sized fireplace. To protect renters from intrusion, the listing cites the following security features: "gates, hedges, no one “looking in” from above."

Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber should rent this house, just to see if TMZ can figure out a way to get a shot of them in a swimsuit in that pool.
