According to property records, the 33-year-old pop musician and entrepreneur paid $10 million for a 5,000-square-foot home in Beverly Hills, California, at the end of March. The Tudor-style home is directly across the street from the 8,000-square-foot property she bought for $13.75 million at the end of last year.
According to Forbes, Rihanna’s cosmetics and fashion brands have made her the world’s wealthiest female artist, with a net worth of $600 million.
Both houses were purchased through trusts and are located in the upscale Beverly Hills Post Office area. According to public documents on PropertyShark, Evan Jehle, a partner at the New York-based business management firm FFO and a member of Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation’s Global Advisory Board, is listed as a trustee on deeds for the two transactions. Mr. Jehle could not be reached for comment right away.
The star’s first home, a white mansion with a seamed black roof that gives it a modern farmhouse appearance, was completely renovated by investor Daniel Starr, who bought it for $4.3 million in a deal featured on Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing” in 2016. It now has an open, indoor-outdoor floor design, white oak floors, many fireplaces, and thick hedges to keep prying eyes away.
According to pictures of the property, the refurbished mansion can be viewed from the grounds of Rihanna’s more recent purchase.
According to listing images from 2015, her new Tudor-style property has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, exposed ceiling beams and wood accents throughout, a sauna, half-basketball court, and pool. Requests for comment from the sellers were not returned.
According to property records, it was last sold in 2015 for just over $5 million. Dirt was the first to report on the deal.
Rihanna recently returned to the United States from London, where she had been renting an opulent Victorian mansion in the city’s posh St. John’s Wood area, according to Mansion Global.
