UPDATED October 22, 12:15 p.m.: Jennifer Lopez is Chelsea Clinton’s new upstairs neighbor.

The pop sensation is buying the penthouse at the Whitman — a four-unit boutique condominium on the north side of Madison Square Park — for $22 million.

J. Lo has been looking for new digs for a while. She also looked at apartments in Chelsea with celebrity broker Fredrik Eklund.

The buyer of the penthouse will have a famous upstairs neighbor. Chelsea Clinton, along with Clinton’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky, and the couple’s newborn, Charlotte, also reside in the Whitman.

Eklund posted the news on his Instagram account, according to Curbed. The penthouse at 21 East 26th Street first hit the market last August for an initial asking price of $25 million. The roughly 6,500-square-foot duplex has four bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms as well as more than 3,000 square feet of private outdoor space.

Besides Clinton, the other residents in the building are NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon and hedge fund manager John Silvetz, according to the website. [Curbed] and [6sqft]— Claire Moses

    It’s surprising that a celebrity would buy the penthouse in a squat building such as this one unless of course she’s never going to use the roof terrace at all. Remember when Jude Law had neighbors snapping pictures of him doing his exercises on the roof? http://nypost.com/2009/11/20/jude-irked-by-nyu-dorms-eye-view/

    Chelsea AKA Howdy Doody, worked VERY hard to earn her condo….after all, she was an excellent journalist with considerable talent, looks, charm and training..certainly, she earned every penny of her $600,000 salary. Never mind that she said “Yes ma’am” ad “oh dear” to her subjects, who ran the interviews and never mind she was as hard to look at as she was to listen to. We cannot forget all of the other important work she has done, none of which had any correlation to her powerful parents. Oh, wait….how interesting that she ended up at the Clinton Foundation, in a chief role. SURPRISEEEEEEE! At least J.Lo can sing and has some talent. CC is intelligent, but even her grades were boosted wayyyyy up due to whom daddy was. Now, she is pushing herself in mass media and we are forced to look at her homely face, chipmunk cheeks and big nose, constantly. At least the Bush girls are charming, attractive and have done things on their own. DID U read that Howdy, er, Chelsee?
