Rihanna has purchased her own $12 million home in the Pacific Palisades, according to reports.
According to TMZ, the home is 11,000 sq. ft. and has nine bathrooms, a swimming pool, seven bedrooms and a BBQ kitchen.
Just last year, Rihanna had to put her Beverly Hills mansion back on the market, due to it being poorly built. She purchased the home for $6.9 million and sold it at a loss for $5 million. She sued the previous homeowner, her real estate agent, and the property inspector, claiming the home was “laden with construction defects.”
Meanwhile, amid rumors that Chris Brown and his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran are back together, Rihanna is reportedly taking a break from the "Carpe Diem" singer.
A source told Hollywood Life: “He [Chris] talks to Karrueche everyday by text and Kae is holding it down for him. Karrueche can’t wait for him to finish his tour. She be telling him to hurry up home and [expletive] like that so that’s what time it is [sic].
"He ain’t talked to Rihanna in two or three days. They giving each other some space but they cool. They good [sic]” the source went on to explain.
Just last week, while on the Wendy Williams show, singer Christina Milian addressed the relationship status between Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran, with whom she is close friends.
When Williams asked Milian about the love triangle between Brown, Tran, and Rihanna, Milian replied “From what I’ve always known, she’s his girlfriend. That’s where it lies for me.”
“I see everything in the media, but I don’t really get into the detail of it. But I think everyone has their own lives and how they deal with things."
She added, "They have the right to handle it how they want. Karrueche is a sweetheart and I think they make a great couple. I do love her. She’s a really good friend of mine.”
