Rihanna Letting Go of Some Big Baggage, Lists $14.995M Home

Grammy award-winning singer Rihanna just listed her Pacific Palisades home for $14.995 million. While the mansion is absolutely gorgeous, the starlet is probably happy to unload this piece of property; just a year after she bought it, the home was broken into twice in two weeks! That’s enough to send any girl packing; it doesn’t matter how “bright like a diamond” that home might shine.

The style icon purchased the home in December of 2012. It spans 9,595 square feet, and has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. “Rihanna’s modern mansion epitomizes luxury, with a top-of-the-line gourmet chef’s kitchen, grand entry and 14-foot ceilings,” said Eric Tan, a Redfin real estate agent in Los Angeles. “The home offers plenty of privacy too, as the estate is situated behind a long gated drive on almost an acre of land.”

RiRi’s former Beverly Hills home is also on the market. She purchased that home in September 2009 under her real name, Robyn R. Fenty, and sold it two years later in 2011. The current owner has it listed with a $8.395 million price tag. The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home is a contemporary gated estate with an open floor plan. The home also has a home theater, a large chef’s kitchen and a pool and spa. The star didn’t have much luck with this home either, as the home reportedly flooded in 2010 due to a leveling issue. The star sued the previous owner and the inspector for a poor remodeling job.

Maybe Rihanna will have better luck finding real estate love in a more hopeful place, such as New York City. Rumors have gone around that the singer has packed her bags and headed to the East Coast, and that she might have also purchased a place back home in Barbados.

Is this the type of modern mansion you imagined the Barbados beauty living in?
