Rihanna drops $14M on Beverly Hills mansion
Investor Daniel Starr renovated the 1930s home
Rihanna found love — in Beverly Hills.
The singer and mogul behind Fenty Beauty and Savage X Fenty dropped $13.8 million on a 7,600-square-foot mansion in the Beverly Hills Post Office area, according to Dirt. It’s Rihanna’s biggest real estate play in Los Angeles of late — or at least the biggest known one.
The seller is investor Daniel Starr, who purchased the home in 2016, as documented on Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing.” He reportedly demolished and rebuilt most of the 1930s structure. In mid-2019, he sued his contractors for several millions of dollars for alleged fraud and poor workmanship.
The property briefly appeared on the market last year asking $15 million. The sale to Rihanna was reportedly done off market.
The interiors were redone with white walls, parquet floors and black accents, a popular style in L.A. in recent years.
The kitchen has two large marble islands. There’s a wet bar, and the living room and lounge rooms each have a fireplace. The main bedroom suite has a walk-in closet, a large bathroom with marble just about everywhere and its own outdoor lounge area.
Rihanna also owns a vacation home in Barbados, a condo along the Wilshire Corridor in L.A. and a penthouse at “The Century” tower. In 2018, a stalker broke into Rihanna’s Hollywood Hills home, which she later listed as a rental. She was one of several victims of a burglary ring active a few years ago.
