Rihanna’s London home, which the pop diva has been renting for nearly $24,000 a week since 2018, is being sold for $41 million. The North London mansion, once owned by De Beers diamond tycoon Daniel Francis, is an eight-bedroom house in the exclusive St. John’s Wood district that was designed by royal architect John Shaw and built in the 19th century.
Covering 6,332 square feet, the singer’s home includes a gym, private elevator and cinema room. The property also boasts parking for 10 cars. According to Michael Sulkin, a realtor for Aston Chase, the Diamonds singer rented the mansion because it afforded her complete privacy. In fact, no one knew of the home’s existence until fans spotted a bag from a local supermarket in one of Rihanna’s Instagram stories last year.

In London, Rihanna’s life was pretty low-key. “She was there for quite a long time — I don’t think most people even knew she was living there,” Sulkin told CNN.”It’s a very unique house — it’s quite something.”
