Singer, business mogul, and mom-of-two Rihanna Fenty has one of the most impressive real estate portfolios in the music biz.

That comes as little surprise considering that the Grammy Award-winning singer and Fenty Beauty founder became America’s youngest self-made female billionaire in 2022, despite not releasing any new music albums since 2016’s Anti (although she did have a chart-topping single, Lift Me Up, recorded for the soundtrack of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever).

But most of her earnings are attributed to her successful makeup brand, Fenty Beauty, which she co-owns alongside French luxury retailer LVMH.

And the 35-year-old billionaire has been making smart decisions with her money (and her love life too)!

After a fair share of heartbreaks and public breakups, Rihanna finally found the love of her life in her longtime friend A$AP Rocky, and the couple now have two children together, 1-year-old RZA and Riot Rose, who was born in August 2023.

With a growing family and unlimited funds, we’re now left wondering — where are Rihanna and A$AP Rocky raising their two adorable children?

Not an easy question to answer, as Rihanna has owned, rented, and even flipped several homes throughout the years.

Her past homes include in a beachfront property in Barbados, a massive mansion in London, a luxury penthouse in Century City, a Mediterranean-style mansion in Hollywood Hills, and a penthouse in New York.

But since we know the pair lives in the U.S. and they’re often spotted by paparazzi in Los Angeles, we’re going to zoom in on the singer’s house in Beverly Hills and the new sprawling penthouse she bought at The Century in 2023.

Rihanna’s house in Beverly Hills, a $13.8 million modern farmhouse originally built in 1938

A$AP Rocky, Riri, and their two adorable babies, RZA and Riot Rose live in a modern farmhouse in Los Angeles located in a swanky Beverly Hills neighborhood that’s home to fellow A-listers like Mariah Carey, Paul McCartney, and Madonna.

The Umbrella singer paid $13.8 million for the heavily renovated property back in 2020, making it one of her most expensive real estate purchases to date (at least on US soil).

The 8,000-square-foot mansion was originally built in 1938 and boasts a unique design, blending contemporary and traditional elements, and sporting a black-and-white modern farmhouse style.

The mansion has 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. Its primary suite has a huge walk-in closet with black lacquer cabinetry, an extravagant marble bathroom and its own large private terrace that offers an impressive view of the hills.

Fun fact: the property’s former realtor, celebrity real estate agent and Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund shared with Robb Report that Hailey and Justin Bieber once toured the house back when it was listed for $16.5 million. In the end, they decided to pass on the opportunity but they landed nearby, as we know Hailey and Justin live in the ultra-ritzy Beverly Park enclave.

Interiors & photos

With an open-plan layout, the interiors are spacious and glamorous yet still homey.

The gourmet kitchen features two marble islands and high-tech ovens. It also has two living rooms — a formal sitting area with a floor-to-ceiling marble fireplace, and an informal one that opens to the outdoor pool. Its formal dining room can also be opened to the central courtyard and patio.

Naturally, the multi-million dollar mansion also comes equipped with lavish amenities for the R&B queen to enjoy.

There is a gorgeous home bar with a sitting area, where guests can relax. The second floor houses the indoor gym, which overlooks the courtyard.

Glamor living extends to the outdoor area, which boasts a custom black pool, a cabana with a fire pit, and several seating areas.

The abode is nestled behind lush hedges and an exclusive cul-de-sac, which gives privacy to the superstar, who has dealt with stalkers and home intruders before. 

Riri also bought (and sold) the house next door

It seems that the beauty mogul enjoyed living in the Beverly Hills property so much that she decided to buy the house next door.

Rihanna bought the house for $10 million in March 2021, Mansion Global reported at the time. The property wasn’t even listed on the market but bad girl Riri made it happen — even though she didn’t hold on to it for long.

The half-acre estate features over 5,000 square feet of living space, with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. It originally featured a Tudor-style structure with luxurious furnishings but design improvements may have been made before the turnover.

It also has a spacious backyard with a large swimming pool and a separate guest house with a full-bedroom suite.

With the two properties, Rihanna had over an acre of land in Beverly Hills, with more than 11,000 square feet of living space and multiple parking lots. But she soon decided to part ways with her second Beverly Hills Post Office abode, listing it for sale in May 2023 for a $10.5 million — just a little bit over what she paid for it a couple of years back.

Her $21M penthouse at The Century, formerly owned by the late Matthew Perry

Just a couple of months before baby Riot Rose came into the picture, the Fenty Beauty founder splurged $21 million on a “mansion in the sky” at The Century, the 42-story condominium skyscraper in Century City, California.

And if you think the $21 million sale price was quite hefty, know that the singer got a massive discount — as the penthouse was once listed by the late FRIENDS actor Matthew Perry for a whopping $35 million, a price point that made it the most expensive condo for sale in Los Angeles at the time (2019).

The 4-bedroom, 8-bathroom residence occupies the building’s entire 40th floor and offers panoramic city, mountain and ocean views, being rightfully likened to a “floating palace” hovering over the city.

Spanning an impressive 9,300 square feet, Rihanna’s home in the sky features a grand living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, a plush screening room, a billiards room, an all-white kitchen with marble countertops, and a primary suite with a curved wall of glass.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky aren’t the only celebrities in the building.

Other famous current residents at The Century include Denzel Washington, who owns a $10.9 million condo in the star-studded building, and Candy Spelling, Tori Spelling’s mom and widow of legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling, who owns the penthouses above Rihanna’s, that occupy the top two floors of the building.
