Merry Christmas, RiRi: Rihanna Buys Herself A $12 Million Gift
Rihanna seems to have a thing for lavish real estate this week.
First comes news the Unapologetic artist has rented a $21.8-million beachfront penthouse for her annual Christmas bash in her home country of Barbados.
“RiRi, her mother, Monica Braithwaite, and younger brother, Rajad, along with her entourage, will lounge at the uber-chic One Sandy Lane in her native Barbados, according to the DailyMail.com,” reports Hollywood Life. It is also rumored that she hasn’t revoked Chris Brown’s invite.
Rihanna has also doled out $12 million for a home in Pacific Palisades — the L.A. enclave where the likes of celebs such as X Factor creator Simon Cowell, Top Shop billionaire Sir Philip Green and other Hollywood A-listers call home.
Her Pacific Palisades home is a brand-new 11,000-square-foot mansion, reports EURWeb. Not only does it cover lots of land, it has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, media rooms, a 6,000 square-foot back garden, a four-car garage and both a swimming pool and hot tub. To top it off, it has panoramic views of the city.
No word on when Rhianna will move in, but hopefully she won’t have as many problems as she had with her last home, which proved to be a bad investment. The Beverly Hills house she bought in 2009 for $6.9 million, according to TMZ, had a leaky roof. It was so bad, the singer sold it at a loss, getting just over $5 million in January 2012.
