    King, 48, chairman of the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolence and Social Change in Atlanta, is also the author of "Growing Up King: An
    Intimate Memoir."

    According to the MLS, Rick Dunlap and Brett Kozma, both of Coldwell Banker, Malibu Colony office, were the listing agents, and J.D. Songstad of Re/Max Marquee Partners, Santa Monica, represented the buyer.
    In Newport Beach, Tawny Kitaen, who costarred with Tom Hanks in "Bachelor Party," has listed her Newport Beach home at $3.45 million.
    The house, with 4,371 square feet, has five bedrooms and 3-1/2 bathrooms. It is in a guard-gated community and has hand-hewn hardwood and stone floors, The Times reported.
    Kitaen, 47, was formerly married to Major League Baseball pitcher Chuck Finley.
