Rihanna Drops $12 Million On Non-Leaky L.A. Mansion

Breaking News
Rihanna's moving on after her leaky Beverly Hills home disaster last year -- plunking down $12 million on a brand new mansion in the Pacific Palisades ... just a few miles away.

The 11,000 sq. ft. house features 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a cutting edge kitchen, a dining room with a 14-foot ceiling, an outdoor BBQ and bar, a swimming pool, a sun deck, 4-car garage, and a 6,000 sq. ft. backyard. 

Not bad, considering Rihanna's last L.A. real estate venture was a nightmare.

As we first reported, Rihanna filed a lawsuit last year against the person who sold her a Beverly Hills mansion, claiming the place was a leaky piece of crap.

Rihanna purchased the home for $6.9 million -- and sold the place last December for a measly $5 million.
