Rihanna Buys $12m LA Home (PICS)

For someone who is constantly jetting across the world, it's a wonder Rihanna even needs a house.

But that hasn't stopped her splashing out $12m on a new LA mansion.

The singer has snapped up a seven bedroom, nine bathroom home in the coveted Pacific Palisades neighbourhood in Los Angeles.

The property boasts a massive 11,000-square-foot of living space, a pool and spa, a 6,000-square-foot garden area with outdoor BBQ, bar, and sundeck.

Not too shabby.

RiRi - who was brought up in Barbados - had to sell her Beverly Hills home, which she only bought last year, after she discovered leaks had caused major damage to several rooms.

But one person who looks like he won't be invited over to her new pad for the housewarming party is her on-off love Chris Brown.

Rihanna has hinted she's split with her ex, who was previously convicted of assaulting her in 2009.

She posted one of her 'R cards' online which read: "Being single sucks. The only thing I get to do anymore is whatever the f**k I want to do."

Let's hope things really are over this time.
