Rihanna splashed out on a new home for her family ahead of giving birth to her second child with ASAP Rocky.
The star, 35, has reportedly snapped up the 40th-floor penthouse in the same building she currently owns a three-bedroom, 3,500-square-foot home in.
Previously owned by Friends actor Matthew Perry, the condo is supposedly ‘more than double the size of her previous one, spanning a whopping 9,290 square feet with four bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths’ – according to Architectural Digest.
The property was listed on the market at $28million (£22.5m) however reports claimed she settled on paying a cool $21m (£17m) for the pad that was formerly owned by Afterpay co-founder Nick Molnar.
The entrepreneur bought the property from Matthew, 53, in 2021.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Rihanna’s new home was ‘Southern California’s priciest condo sale since 2015’.
They also revealed that it took the actor almost as much time to sell the condo as he spent living in it, having dropped $20m (£16.1m) on it in 2017.
The space boasts four bedrooms, eight bathrooms and four terraces and also offers picturesque panoramic views of the city – stretching from the DTLA skyline to the Pacific Ocean.
Familiar with the area and complex, Rihanna is already a resident of the building which serves as a celebrity-friendly gated building that promises around-the-clock concierge services and strict security measures.
Ensuring the condo is fit for the megastar, along with the sprawling space the hitmaker will be able to enjoy a pool with cabanas, a high-spec fitness area, a movie theatre and elaborate wine storage to name but a few of the fancy features.
Her extravagant purchase came after news of her rankings on the Forbes’ billionaire list broke earlier this year.
The Diamonds singer landed herself on the ladder of the world’s richest people following massive success with her Fenty brand.
She came in at number 2002 with her estimated net worth said to be to the tune of $1.4billion (£1.2b).
Rihanna is expecting her second child with her rapper beau having welcomed their little boy on May 13 last year.
