UPDATED October 9, 4:42 p.m.: A new marriage has apparently not done much for Justin Bieber’s fear of commitment.

The Canadian pop singer is dropping nearly $100,000 a month to rent a 7,000-square-foot home in the San Fernando Valley enclave of Toluca Lake, according to People.

Bieber agreed to rent the home, which is listed off-market for $8.5 million, in a short-term arrangement that pushed up the monthly fee, a source told the magazine.

The home’s owners, Howard Atkins and Kathleen McIntyre of San Francisco, bought it for $4.9 million in 2009, according to property records. Atkins is a former CFO of Wells Fargo & Co.

The Spanish contemporary home was overhauled two years ago, which boosted the square footage. It now has five bedrooms and seven baths, and a 1,200-square-foot garage. More importantly for the singer, it has a professional recording studio, along with a pool, spa and private dock with two paddle boats.

Bieber’s master suite features a massive walk-in closet and a luxurious spa-like bathroom and windows that showcase the home’s lake views.

TMZ first reported news of the rental.

Last month, Bieber married Hailey Baldwin, a model and television personality, in a secret ceremony in New York City, PEOPLE reported. He is known to rent properties in various places, including in Miami Beach and the Hamptons, where in 2016 home builder Joe Farrell let Bieber stay for free in a mansion that normally rents for $80,000 a week.
