Rihanna skipped out on the Grammys this year and hasn’t dropped an album in 5 years, but rest assured, she’s doing just fine … and the proof’s in her new pad.
The singer and Fenty Beauty founder is the new owner of a Beverly Hills mansion in a celeb-centric cul-de-sac … where she’ll count her “FourFiveSeconds” mate, Sir Paul McCartney, as a neighbor.
Rihanna reportedly dropped $13.8 million on the beautiful 7,628-square-foot home sitting on a nearly 22,000-square-foot lot … which comes with an open-air courtyard, pool, spa and fire pit. On the inside, there’s a spacious floor plan with 5 beds, 7 baths and, of course … a gourmet chef’s kitchen.
Originally built in the 1930s, the farm estate was formerly owned by Mary Sheldon, the daughter of “I Dream of Jeanie” creator Sidney Sheldon. In 2016, Sheldon sold the old house for $4.3 million to entrepreneur and investor Daniel Starr. They then demolished and rebuilt the house after spending millions on it.
The 7,600-square-foot mansion features a “sophisticated design” that “blends both contemporary and traditional elements,” per the listing with a French white oak-inspired feel. It features a fireplace-equipped living room with walls of Fleetwood glass sliders opening to the outdoors, an intimate family room/lounge/library with another fireplace, plus floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves, a full bar, two islands-equipped kitchen, a luxurious swimming pool and more.
If you haven’t heard, Rihanna’s been killing it the past few years in the fashion and cosmetics biz with Savage x Fenty to go with Fenty Beauty … this mansion is the fruit of that labor.
She was last reported to have purchased a Pacific Palisades home for $12 million in 2012, but took up residence in an undisclosed location sometime between 2014 and 2016. Rihanna also owns a beachfront property in her native Barbados, which she reportedly bought in 2013 for $22 million.
