Rihanna Sells Water-Damaged Mansion at a Loss
Rihanna's legal tussles never seem to end. Fresh off another creatively minded lawsuit that accuses her of plagiarizing one of her videos, the 'You Da One' singer is dealing with a financial headache. The singer finally sold her water-damaged Beverly Hills mansion for $5 million. While it's usually a relief to unload a piece of property, especially a fixer upper, RiRi took a big loss on the property, which she bought for $6.9 million two years ago.
The L.A. Times reports that RiRi was asking $4.5 million for the home, which was damaged due to a rainstorm. RiRi may be able to recoup some of the money she lost in the deal, since she is embroiled in a lawsuit with the prior owner and broker over the water damage, which she says rendered it unlivable.
The home was listed as a "major fixer" traumatized by moisture on the roof, windows, doors and balconies. Despite that unattractiveness, the home still nabbed offers from four different buyers. Obviously, someone with a passion for rehabbing houses hit the motherload with this abode.
The expansive home, just over 8,500 square feet, features eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a den and three fireplaces spread over three stories. There is also a pool.
Once it's fixed up, it'll be some swank living quarters. But it's not RiRi's headache or problem any longer.
