Coming home to your humble abode from a hard day’s work is one of the best feelings ever, but have you ever thought about the comfort it will bring you if you arrive in your not-so-humble home? While we could only dream of such thing – laying in the oh-so-thick bed, lounging around in your home theater area, or just hanging out by the pool – celebrities have the luxury to spend on their residences and have these made according to their heart’s desires. After all, with their fat bank accounts because of their hard work, there’s no reason they can’t afford lavish houses. Here are some of the most expensive homes:
Rihanna has had a successful journey from being a singer to a businesswoman. But way back in 2013, when her Fenty Beauty cosmetics line – which fans would know came from the artist’s real name Robyn Fenty – was still out of the horizon, the “Umbrella” singer already managed to snatch a $22-million villa in the Caribbean island of Barbados, the place where she originally hails from. According to reports, the palatial house is located at One Sandy Lane, where “The X Factor” judge Simon Cowell also owns one.
The residence spans 10,000 square feet and is near the beach and the luxurious five-star Sandy Lane Hotel. According to a source, the said house was actually rented by Rihanna’s family the year before she bought it, and did so because she wanted to spend more time with her family as she has been returning to her hometown for the holidays.
The 28-year-old starred in a lot of films both indie and mainstream but perhaps, Jennifer Lawrence is best known for playing the lead role in the dystopian franchise “The Hunger Games.” Two years after the first of the series premiered, the actress bought her $8-million house in Beverly Hills. The stunning actress bought the enviable house from singer Jessica Simpson, who moved to that abode when she and Nick Lachey in 2005 broke up, thus, it was dubbed as the perfect pad for a bachelorette.
Although tagged as such, any single woman would surely find happiness in this more-than-enough home that measures 5,500 square feet and boasts five bedrooms and French-styled wardrobes. Outside, you’ll be in awe of a scenic garden that features a koi pond, a swimming pool, and a stone courtyard.
With his stellar film credits in his more than three decades in the entertainment industry, it’s no wonder how Johnny Depp can afford many pricey houses. In fact, he has invested in many properties – like in an island in the Bahamas, in France, and in Los Angeles – but one of the most impressive ones sits in Hollywood Hills, which is estimated to be worth a whopping $19 million!
Actually, this is a collection of five houses, which he bought for just $1.8 million in 1995. This 1927-made home covers more than 7,400 square feet and has 29 rooms, eight bedrooms, and 10 bathrooms. It’s unclear if the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ever feels lonely in this humongous house, but it would be surely perfect for parties.
Justin Bieber literally grew up before the eyes of the public, thanks to Usher’s discovery of this YouTube sensation. After releasing numerous albums and chart-topping hits, it’s definitely not a surprise that he can stay at a $20-million Hollywood Hills mansion, which he and wife Hailey Baldwin rent for $60,000 a month! The humble abode, if you can call it that, has an infinity pool, six bedrooms, and seven bathrooms.
The house is literally made of glass windows from floor to ceiling, which may not be the best option for A-listers. This may explain the numerous photographs of rowdy parties thrown by the “Never Say Never” crooner at his house.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West seemed to have everything figured out – Kim already has a successful cosmetics and fragrance line, KKW Beauty, a reality show, several endorsements, a loving husband, and a supportive family, while the rapper has a successful music career, a related record producing job, and has a hand in fashion designing, too, plus the two share three, soon to be four, wonderful offspring. What can still make it over the top?
Perhaps their $20-million Hidden Hills mansion that is fit for the royals. However, as much as the house comes with a hefty price tag, Kanye seemed to never be satisfied with it as he reportedly just had the fifth renovation. By last year after the renovations, Kris Jenner tweeted that it was then worth $60 million!
