John Legend, Chrissy Teigen buy Beverly Hills home once owned by Rihanna


Singer-songwriter John Legend and his wife, model Chrissy Teigen, have bought a house in Beverly Hills for $14.1 million, according to agents not authorized to comment on the sale.

The remodeled Contemporary-style home on close to an acre was formerly owned by pop star Rihanna, who sold the property four years ago for $5.03 million.

Designed for large- and small-scale entertaining, three floors of open-plan space include a billiard room with a wet bar, a home theater and communal and formal dining rooms. Nine flat-screen televisions are found throughout the 8,520 square feet of open-plan space.


Other features include a chef’s kitchen with two islands, a gym, an office, three fireplaces and a glass-enclosed catwalk. Retracting walls of glass blend indoor and outdoor living spaces.

The master suite has an oversized steam shower, a sauna and a soaking tub for a total of five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

A patio, a viewing deck and a swimming pool are within the grounds.

Views take in the ocean, canyon and surrounding cityscape.

The house came to market in January 2015 for $16.895 million, records show. More recently, it was listed for sale at $14.895 million.

Listing agent Mia Trudeau of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, declined to comment on the sale. Steven Moritz of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyers, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Legend, 39, has won nine Grammys, including two awards for best R&B album, for “Wake Up!” and “Get Lifted.” Last year, he won an Oscar for best original song for “Glory” for the 2014 film “Selma.”


Teigen, 30, appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated last year. Co-hosting “Lip Sync Battle” on Spike TV and appearing on Tyra Bank’s show “FABLife” as a food stylist are among her recent projects.
