First Beyonce and Jay Z­—a man who is named after a New York City subway line—announced their plans to decamp to Los Angeles, and now, in the ultimate act of betrayal, Lena Dunham may follow suit. Yes, the woman responsible for Girls (and the rise of the "just a bunch of twentysomethings, trying to make it in Brooklyn" sitcom genre) is close to closing a deal on a $2.7 million home on the Sunset Strip, Refinery 29 reports.

It's unclear if Dunham is selling the Brooklyn Heights apartment she purchased last year, or if she plans on splitting her time between both properties. But if she does leave her Brooklyn address behind, the new tenants better not touch this glorious wallpaper.
