Rihanna has purchased a new mansion in the Pacific Palisades, CA for around $12 million, just in time for the holidays.
The 11,000 square foot house will reportedly feature seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a media room and a game room. Her Pacific Palisades residence is also a smart home, with every feature of the property including lights, media, fireplaces, alarm and air conditioning operated by one remote control.
Outside, the mansion boasts the perfect setting for one of Rihanna’s infamous parties,with a nearly 6000 square foot backyard that includes a bbq and fire pit on the sun deck and a pool with outdoor bar. There is also a jacuzzi adjacent to the pool and bar, making the house ideal for private pool parties. The property also includes a four-car garage, where Rihanna will park her Christmas gift from Jay-Z.
Likely due to a strong year of sales and profitable world tour, the singer was presented with a silver Porsche 911 Turbo S on Tuesday by her management team, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.
Rihanna took to Twitter to express her gratitude: “Ain’t nobody p**ckin wit my clique (sic)!! Thank you to my Roc brothers! I love you guys, y’all are crazy for getting me this bad a** h*”
In buying the new mansion, the “Where Have You Been” singer will also have some high-profile neighbors. Seal, Heidi Klum and Tom Brady all have properties nearby in the Pacific Palisades.
Hopefully, this venture into real estate will go better than her last one. There is no word on whether Rihanna finally sold her damaged Beverly Hills mansion that she purchased in 2009. After buying the house, Rihanna discovered water damage and waterproofing defects. In 2011, Rihanna sued the seller (Heather Rodumin), claiming she knew the property was defective. The property inspector and others were also named in the suit.
