A monthly rent of $65,000 might seem like a lot, but it’s actually a temporary 35 percent discount on this modern home in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles. The real rent is $100,000 a month starting in January, according to the listing. Why the high price? The house measures 9,595 square feet -- and it’s owned by Rihanna.
The singer bought the home just over a year ago for around $12 million, but she’s been plagued by break-ins. In February, a man broke into her neighbor’s home and slept in a bed he believed to be hers. In June, police arrested a man on the roof of her home, and in October, another man was reportedly arrested after an attempted break-in.
The home is described as having “unmatched privacy and serenity,” but Rihanna is renting a condo in Manhattan's Chinatown instead. There she’ll be protected from intruders by a doorman-guarded entrance and elevator access.
Perhaps her Pacific Palisades home would be better suited to a new tenant with a less public profile. The “resort-like” estate is situated at the end of a long, private drive. Built in 2012, the home has 7 bedrooms, 9 baths and extra-large living spaces with 14-foot ceilings. High-end features include media and game rooms, plus “smart home” technology that controls temperature, fireplaces, security and sound. Outdoor features include a sun deck with fire pit and barbecue, as well as an infinity pool with spa.
RiRi doesn’t have the best luck with real estate. She sold her last home while suing the contractor and real estate agent for failure to disclose the numerous water issues in the house. | By Erika Riggs, Zillow Blog
