Rihanna’s Former Defective Panty-Dropping Palace On the Market for $8.4 Million

Rihanna’s now hanging her umbrella in NYC and for good reason.

Her last two L.A. homes were either crawling with would-be burglars or riddled with construction issues. And it got so bad under one roof that in 2011 she filed a lawsuit against the former owner of her Beverly Hills mansion claiming major defects.

Two years later RiRi’s still battling it out in court, but her former digs have been spruced up from top to bottom…

And looks nothing like the place RiRi left behind.

The “Stay” singer bought the house in 2009 for $6.9 million and it only sold for just over $5 million. Now, the spanking new spread has just hit the market for $8.4 million, Celebuzz has learned.

The newly-remodeled contemporary crib boasts 7 beds and 9 baths with over 8,500 square feet. That includes what looks like ridiculously expensive décor (i.e. crystal tiles in the bathroom shower) that the listing boasts is “tailor-made for an A-List celebrity” with rocker chic accents and a custom closet the size of a boutique store with suede ceilings.

The glam gated mansion sits on a grassy landscape and everything is top-of-the-line. Fancy finishes include 35-foot tongue and groove wood ceilings, Fleetwood doors and a tiered home theater for private screenings. And outside the pool and spa overlook the terrace with a 270-degree view.

This is a far cry from the dilapidated pad RiRi described in her suit claiming the place was hit by a “moderate rainstorm” and because of the extensive defects water leaked into multiple rooms causing even more damage and was not worth the millions she forked over.
