Rihanna's new extravagance

Rihanna Purchases a Lavish LA Penthouse for $21 Million, previously owned by actor Matthew Perry, situated on the 40th floor. As a soon-to-be mother of two, Rihanna might have sensed that her three-bedroom, 3,500-square-foot primary residence in a luxury LA skyscraper was becoming cramped for her and her growing family with rapper A$AP Rocky. According to Dirt, the nine-time Grammy award winner has now upgraded to a penthouse that spans the entire 40th floor of the same building, which is a contemporary-style structure consisting of 42 floors designed by the renowned AD100 Hall of Fame architect, Robert A.M. Stern. She has been living in the building since 2014.

The singer and billionaire mogul shelled out $21 million for her latest residence in Century City. The new property is more than twice the size of her previous home, spreading over an enormous 9,290 square feet, comprising four bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. The luxurious apartment was previously owned by Friends star Matthew Perry, who enlisted the services of designer LM Pagano and architect Scott Joyce to renovate the contemporary living space before putting it on the market in 2019 for $35 million. It was not until 2021 that the current owner, Afterpay co-founder Nick Molnar, acquired the capacious penthouse for $21.6 million, and the following year, put it back on the market with an initial asking price of just under $28 million.

What are others reading:

The deal closed one day before LA’s “mansion tax” went into effect, which was likely a big bargaining chip in Rihanna’s favor. The Barbadian superstar managed to secure it for a discount and can now enjoy 360-degree city skyline views from the apartment’s many rows of windows and four terraces–one on each side of the dwelling. Other highlights include a plush soundproof movie theater with tiered seating, a kitchen with two marble islands, and a sprawling primary suite outfitted with dual bathrooms, roomy closets, and a private seating area complete with a fireplace. The “Work” singer also maintains a pair of neighboring Beverly Hills mansions.
