Rihanna puts LA home on the market for £8.4 million because she's too busy to live there

Pop superstar to sell Pacific Palisades mansion after owning it for just over a year

After owning her LA home for little over a year, singing sensation Rihanna has put her plush pad on the market, according to trulia.com (opens in new tab).

The famous seller (ella, ella, eh, eh, eh) is hoping to get £8.4 million for the grand property in Pacific Palisades, an area home to some of the brightest stars in Hollywood.

When we say pad, we are definitely playing this property down. the 11,000 sq ft mansion comes complete with seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a pretty sizeable pool.

The star only bought the property back in December 2012 for £7.2 million, but due to her jet set lifestyle has barely spent any time there.

The impressive house was actually put up for rent in November 2013 for an eye-watering £40,000 a month, but Rihanna has now decided to part with the property for good.

Built in 2010, the estate sits in a 33,541 sq ft plot surrounded by oak and sycamore trees - ideal for avoiding the prying eyes of the world's media. 

Not that any hopeful paps would have managed to snap any photos of Rihanna as she has barely been around to enjoy her multi-million dollar home.

The palatial property is now back on the market with an asking price of £8.4 million. That's £1.2 million more than she originally paid for it.

Decorated in neutral tones, the house boasts an ultra-modern kitchen, an extra large dining room with a 14ft ceiling and state-of-the-art retractable glass walls so you can step right out into the grounds.

Once you're out there you can enjoy the impressive 6,000 sq ft yard offering a pool, Jacuzzi, fire pit and the all-important barbecue. With space enough for 20 cars on the driveway, we think this would be the perfect place for a fabulous summer party. Well, we can dream can't we?
