Rihanna has a gorgeous family home in Barbados, she has a posh apartment in New York City, and after flip flopping between Beverly Hills and the Palisades, Celebdigs.com can report exclusively that the R&B superstar is leasing this stunning $8 million home in the Hollywood Hills!
The singer, who turns 26 on Thursday, has been staying at this house for the last few weeks, and though she hasn't been seen at her Palisades pad for a while, she hasn't put it on the market yet either.
The house previously belonged to DJ/producer Val Kolton, who bought it from Rockstar energy drink founder Russ Weiner for $8 million in 2008. Public records indicate that Kolton sold it in late 2012 for $7.2 million, so we're not sure who owns it now, but it does seem like the kind of residence that's right up Rihanna's alley!
The 7,877-square-foot home, which has been nicknamed "The Fortress," was built in 1994 by David Lawrence Gray, and it has 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. The mansion is comprised mostly of concrete and steel, and a glass staircase leads you over the 60-foot entry into the master bedroom suite. The stainless steel kitchen was designed by the Porsche Design Group, and other amenities include a large screening room, a gym, a Koi pond and a motor court. The half acre lot boasts a decent-sized lawn, a 12-person spa and a long, phallic-shaped swimming pool. We're not even kidding...
It's modern, it's the perfect party pad and as far as design, it bears some similarities to the first home RiRi purchased in LA, which she sold for $5 million in December of 2011 ... Check out 50 more photos in the gallery below!
