After suing over the fact that the home is damaged, Rihanna sold her Beverly Hills mansion for $5 million. That's significantly less than she paid for it, and the singer took a hefty loss.
The Los Angeles Times reports that RiRi paid $6.9 million for the home. She hopes to recoup some of what she lost via a lawsuit she has levied at the former owner and a real estate firm. RiRi said the home suffered significant damage after a rainstorm. Wait, it never rains here in L.A. Oh, yes, it does, sometimes.
The house was listed as a "major fixer" with "extensive damage from moisture and water intrusion" at the roof, windows, doors, and balconies. Even in such TLC condition, the home still pulled in four offers. Some people like to tackle fixer uppers.
The home does have its high points: 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a den, a media room, several fire places and a pool.
Would you buy a fixer upper from a celeb if you had the monetary means?
