Did Rihanna Nab a New Nest?

According to the people at X17, super star singer Rihanna got some real estate fancy pants and recently snatched up a modern mansion in the 90210. According to listing information Your Mama dug up, the newly constructed casa in the Bev Hills Post Office measures in at more than 10,000 square feet and contains 8 bedrooms and 10 poopers.

Now come on gurl. Your Mama knows you are flooded and flush with new money burning a hole in your damn pockets, but seriously child, pleeze, 8 bedrooms and 10 terlits? You are just 21 years old. We know you do not go anywhere, including the damn pooper, without having a passel of people tagging along, but what in the world are you gonna do rambling around in that big ol' house all by your lonesome when your entourage home to their families? Plus, now you have to staff up and add a damn full time terlit gurl to the payroll.

Anyhoo, additional amenities of the gated mansion include 270 degree views, 30 foot ceilings, a library, large gourmet kitchen, movie theater, a swimming pool and a deck that hangs over the canyon with long views of the glittery carpet of lights below.

X17 is reporting that the house was listed at $9,995,000 and that Miss Rihanna worked herself a bargain and scored the place for $6,900,000. We don't find any recent transaction records that would indicate Miss Rihanna, or anyone else for that matter, has bought this Bev Hills beast so we don't know if the reported sale price is accurate. What we do know, thanks to information provided to Your Mama by Babbling Babette, is that the multi-winged modern was actually last listed at $8,995,000.

UPDATE (Later Same Day): One of the children sent a covert communique to Your Mama stating that this house, this house in Beverly Hills that Rihanna (allegedly) purchased, was used on the second season of Paris Hilton's My New BFF. Now listens, everybody knows that Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter have an admittedly unhealthy addiction to reality tee-vee. We will watch just about any old thing they will toss up on the boob-toob. But even Your Mama has to draw the reality tee-vee line somewhere and that line is Paris Hilton, meaning we've never polluted and punished our minds watching her little program. However, a little research on the interweb turned up some photos on the MTV website that we were able to compare against listing photos and, sure enough, they do indeed seem to be the same house. Who would have guessed Rihanna would buy a house tainted by reality television?

ANOTHER UPDATE: Property records now reflect that the house was indeed purchased by Rihanna (nee Robyn Fenty) for $6,900,000 just like the people at X17 originally reported.

I am a little confused as to how she can afford this. I mean, she had the Umbrella song which must have earned a pretty penny, and I am vaguely aware of another one called Disturbia, but apart from that RiRi seems to just do a lot of shopping in Paris. I also heard she was broke last year but that doesn't seem to be the case. Anyhoo, I do love her style which kinda reminds me of the fearless Miz Grace Jones.

Well what would you expect her to do with her money? Give some to charity? You must think she is insane and has a conscience. What nonsense. Have you ever heard of a Hollywood type giving much money away? I haven't.

She earns that much money by performances and by endorsement, not just by selling her album. She represents some products (i forgot what..like cosmetics and other stuff which is worth millions). A lot of celebrities..actors,tennis players, supermodels,...earn like x-times more by endorsements than by the actual work in their field (playing tennis,singing, acting)

1. I hear-ed that Rihanna's former boo Chris Brown bought her this house. Don't know if that be the truth or not.
2. What is the deal with the "portraits" of various Hollywood folk all over this place...someone said that these hideous pieces are the work of LA's "premiere artist." Does anyone know the details? Do you think they were sold with the house or were just staging? Are such pieces really popular in LaLaLand?

I'm sure these paintings are popular among a certain crowd in LA, but not anyone who knows anything about art. They're horrible.

rhianna makes a hell of a lot more money than chris brown. and you didn't "hear" anything, you read is somewhere and that somewhere is full of shit.

Wait, the rumor was that she was broke because she has a spending problem.

Has this changed?

I can't imagine that it's true... the house is of such poor quality.

Guys and gals, in her brief four-year career, Rihanna has sold over 12 million albums in a dwindling music industry and has another album dropping by year's end. She's compiled eleven top 10 hits (including five #1's) in the U.S. alone. In fact, if I'm not mistaken, she's one chart-topper from having the most this decade. She also has a handful of lucrative endorsement deals including one with CoverGirl. She probably gets handed more haute couture than she actually buys. I seriously doubt she has a cash flow problem.

I think riri is the most successful female singer of this decade, she can def afford this place. And she rents a huge place in soho.

The house is not paparazzi proof... you can see the entire backyard if you are up on Bowmont. I highly doubt that she would consider this due to the poor exposure. Just guessin'
