Where does Rihanna live?
Her main spots are in Los Angeles and her native Barbados. So where does Rihanna live in Los Angeles? Hollywood Hills of course! That said, she is also a bit of an investor. Many other celebrity home blogs claim she lives in all kinds of different places when in reality, those are flips. Here at Velvet Ropes, we’re cutting the crap and give you the REAL info.
In August 2017, Rihanna paid $6.8 million for a Hollywood Hills contemporary. This is her primary home. #NotTooShabby
The 7,130 square foot home sits on half an acre of land above the Sunset Strip and is decked out with all the bells and whistles. With 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a theater, and a guest house – she’ll never have to leave!
What is Rihanna’s address? Nosey, are you? We are too! We’ve got a ton of exclusive photos, details of every nook and cranny, as well as Rihanna’s address, here: Rihanna’s House Uncovered!
We mentioned she flips homes, too. She bought this Hollywood Hills Villa in August 2017 and sold it 3 months later (October 2017) for a $100,000 profit!
Where does Rihanna live in Barbados?
Heard of paradise? That’s where she lives! One Sandy Lane Resort is an exclusive complex in Barbados where Rihanna owns a 5 bedroom condo.
It’s a sprawling property with ocean views, all the luxury resort amenities you’d expect, a golf course, and private beach access.
She bought the place in October 2013 for a whopping $22 million. So, those of you writing in asking us “where does Rihanna stay in Barbados?” – you better believe she stays HERE when visiting Barbados.
What does Rihanna do for Barbados?
Well, she totally gives them props whenever she can and she signed on for a three-year deal to become the face of Barbados back in 2012. She’s a passionate native!
But she wasn’t named Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year for nothing. The singer not only helped to build a breast cancer screening and treatment center for the island, but she also created a foundation named after her grandparents that offers scholarships to students attending college in the United States from Caribbean countries.
According to the Harvard Foundation’s director S. Allen Counter, the singer also “… supports the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, a multi-year campaign that will provide children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls and those affected by lack of access to education in the world today.”
