Rihanna buys a $13.8 million Beverly Hills mansion on the same street as Sir Paul McCartney 


Rihanna purchased a stunning $13.8 million Beverly Hills mansion with an open-air courtyard and pool across the street from Sir Paul McCartney, who she previously worked together on the hit FourFiveSeconds in 2015.

The five-bedroom home includes seven bathrooms, is located on a secluded and lush cul-de-sac in the mountains sprawling 21,958-square-foot lot and was originally built in the 1930s. 

The 33-year-old mogul’s other neighbors on the same quiet street include Mariah Carey, who has been leasing a property a few doors down for years and recently Madonna amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Rihanna’s new digs were once owned the I Dream of Jeanie creator Sidney Sheldon’s daughter Mary Sheldon. 

Daniel Starr, who paid Sheldon $4.3 million for the estate, chronicled his renovations of the home on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing. 

After reportedly spending ‘millions to demolish and rebuild nearly every inch of the house’ he later sued his contractors for ‘fraud and shoddy workmanship,’ according to Dirt.
