Rihanna Drops $21 Million On Los Angeles Penthouse
Rihanna just dropped $21 million on a Los Angeles penthouse to accommodate her growing family of four.
The pregnant pop superstar is gearing up for the birth of her second child and decided that the three-bedroom luxury condo she’s resided in since 2014 was too small, The Dirt reports. As a result, Rihanna is leaving her 3,500-square-foot home and relocating into her building’s largest condo, a penthouse that spans the building’s entire 40th floor!
The billionaire Bajan singer and mogul lives inside The Century, one of LA’s most expensive and prestigious residential skyscrapers. Rih Rih purchased the pad from Nick Molnar, the billionaire co-founder of tech company Afterpay, who initially wanted $28 million for the condo but agreed to Rihanna’s $7 million negotiation.
It was quite the steal for Rihanna as the home’s biggest selling point is its four separate outdoor terraces facing four different directions that provide panoramic views of LA. With balconies facing north, south, east, and west, guests enjoy astonishing views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island, Downtown L.A. skyscrapers, the San Gabriel mountains, and the snowcapped Mount Baldy.
The home was already customized by its original owner, Friends star Matthew Perry, who worked on the condo with architect Scott Joyce and interior designer LM Pagano. The luxury penthouse is accessible by a private elevator that leads guests into the curved living room with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a jaw-dropping skyline view of the city.
Sitting on more than 9,000 square feet, the home has dark hardwood floors leading into the dining room that sits near the all-white kitchen with marble countertops, dual islands, and premium appliances. Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and their two children will also get good use out of the soundproof movie theater that features velour couches and a master suite with a private lounge.
Rihanna’s neighbors include Denzel Washington, Terry and Heather Dubrow, and Candy Spelling, whose two-floor penthouse sits atop the “Diamonds” singer. The penthouse upgrade comes after the Fenty Beauty founder announced her pregnancy while headlining the Super Bowl halftime show in February.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are already parents to a son whom they welcomed in May 2022. His name remains a mystery as the celebrity couple prepares to welcome another family member.
