New face, new house.
The Weeknd, born Abel Tesfaye, is selling his Los Angeles penthouse for $22.5 million after shelling out a whopping $70 million on a Bel-Air mega-mansion.
It has only been two years since the special effects-loving singer-songwriter purchased the abode in 2019 for $21 million, records show, so he won’t see much of a payday if he can find a buyer.
The artist’s sale would beat Matthew Perry’s record for pricey real estate. The “Friends” actor recently unloaded his penthouse in Century City for $21.6 million last year.
Made up of four bedrooms and eight bathrooms, The Weeknd’s home spans 8,000 square feet, and makes up the entire floor of the building.
Features include 360 degree views of the Hollywood Hills, Bel-Air, the Los Angeles Country Club, and as far as Downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean, according to the listing.
There is a private state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen and entertainment bar with a TV-Wall. The primary suite features a private gym and a lavish bathroom with a jewel box steam shower.
The Weeknd sold his Hidden Hills home last February for $22 million.
His latest album, “dawn FM” is set to be released on January 7.
Angel Salvador with The Beverly Hills Estates Inc. holds the listing.
