Welcoming a new member, Rihanna goes all out, purchasing a lavish penthouse in Century City for an iffy amount

Rihanna has lived in The Century, one of Los Angeles’ most expensive and prominent residential towers, since 2014. However, with a new baby, a second on the way, employees, and her entourage, her three-bedroom, 3,500-square-foot home is feeling full.


To address this issue, the Barbadian superstar invested $21 million in a penthouse on the 40th floor of The Century, one of the building’s largest apartments. The A-lister-worthy home has over 9,000 square feet, bespoke features, and stunning vistas.


The apartment was sold by billionaire Afterpay co-founder Nick Molnar, who had requested $28 million. Rihanna negotiated a big decrease and likely used L.A.’s mansion tax as leverage because the purchаse was finished on March 31, one day before the new tax took effect. If the purchаse been consummated in April, Molnar would have owed an additional $1.1 million in taxes.





As soon as they step off the private elevator landing into the condo’s entrance gallery, visitors are аmаzed by the living room’s curved wall of floor-to-ceiling windows with city skyline views. Dark brown hardwood floors lead from the dining room to the all-white kitchen with marble countertops, two islands, and high-end appliances.


The property has a soundproof movie theater with velour couches, a master suite with a curved bedroom, two custom closets, two bathrooms, and a lounge. One of the condo’s best features is its four outdoor terraces, which face north, south, east, and west and give views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island, Downtown Los Angeles skyscrapers, San Gabriel mountains, and snow-capped Mount Baldy.


Rihanna pays $8,814 per month for her penthouse’s HOA, but she gets access to the building’s best amenities, including four deeded garage parking spaces, a 24-hour concierge, security guards, an outdoor pool and lush gardens, on-site storage, a restaurant, conference rooms, and more.
