It appears Taylor Swift just shelled out $18 million on a Tribeca townhouse that has a bit of a reputation.

The pop star purchased 153 Franklin Street, where disgraced French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn stayed while he was under house arrest, the New York Post reported. At the time, Strauss-Kahn was accused of sexual assault and attempting to rape a hotel maid. The charges were dismissed.

T-Swift owns a duplex apartment nearby, 155 Franklin Street. She purchased the unit in 2014 for $19.95 million. Her new three-story townhouse features a gym, a spa and a planted terrace. She purchased the home through Euro Tribeca LLC, which is connected to an attorney who’s represented her on past real estate deals. According to Forbes, Swift has a net worth of $280 million.
