Chris Brown Buys Mansion Near Rihanna’s Home

R&B star's new Hollywood bachelor pad is just miles away from his ex's house, which she recently put up for sale.

After a successful year on the charts, Chris Brown has decided to make some more noise, this time on the real estate market. Radar Online is reporting that Brown has snatched up a mansion in the Hollywood Hills for a cool $1.5 million. The price tag on the home is not the only eye-opening detail: When Brown moves in, he’ll be just miles away from his ex Rihanna.

According to listings site href="http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2738-Rinconia-Dr-Los-Angeles-CA-90068/89146305_zpid/" target="_blank">Zillow.com, Brown’s new digs went on the market back in 2009 for $2.6 million but dropped by over $1 million by the time the singer snatched it up in October.

Brown’s new home is eight miles from Rihanna’s front door. But they won’t be so close for long. She recently put her eight-bedroom Beverly Crest home on the market for $4.5 million, which, according to real estate site Blockshopper.com, is far above the average $1.35 million asking price for homes in her neighborhood.

Brown had been on the search for a new location since the spring, when, according to Radar, residents in his West Hollywood community complained about his loud lifestyle.

Those complaints might have been a blessing as they opened the door for Brown to score a major deal on the market with the mansion’s reduced price tag. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom bachelor pad is listed at
2473 square feet and, according to The Daily Mail, includes an elevator to go along with its outdoor pool, sleek modern patio and living room with two stories of windows.
