Rihanna recently purchased this new-build home in the L.A. hills, which has an outdoor entertaining zone consisting of a zero edge swimming pool with arcing water features, a partially covered patio lounge and sundeck, a barbecue and bar, and a 6,000-square-foot garden area. The interior gets lots of natural light through many floor-to-ceiling glass walls and doors, and the kitchen has 14-foot ceilings.
The 24-year-old Barbadian singer also bought a five-bedroom house for her mother in her home country last year, according to the Daily Mail. She seems to have chosen better this time when buying for herself than with her other house, which had extensive water damage that led to a lawsuit.
