When you work hard and are successful, you want often want to buy yourself something really nice. In this case, Rihanna is allegedly renting an NYC apartment in an up and coming neighborhood for $39,000 per month!
According to the New York Daily News, the singer’s new digs are in an apartment building right on the border of Chinatown and SOHO in Manhattan. The Lafayette Avenue building has some pretty high priced units and this particular duplex was actually on the market for over $14 million, but Rihanna was able to rent it at a much more reasonable price.
The loft apartment, located on the 11th and 12th floors of the building, has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a 2,4000 square foot wraparound terrace with fabulous views of the city.
It also has a six foot deep bath tub in the master bathroom that gives a direct view of the Empire State Building.
Of course, the building itself has a full-time doorman and likely many other amenities.
I know you’re probably thinking, “Why not just buy a place if you’re going to spend that kind of money?” Well, if Rihanna wants to stop staying at hotels while in the city, but wants a more “home-y” feeling, this makes sense. If the place is hers, Rihanna is getting a much better deal for the place rather than buying it. Plus, her primary residence is in Los Angeles.
While neither real estate broker Dana Power nor Rihanna’s reps would comment to confirm, the News has posted pictures. Check it out here!
