The home, which occupies the entire 40th floor of the The Century high rise, boasts a whopping 9,300 square-feet, for which Rihanna shelled out a casual $21 million.
The penthouse features not one, not two, but four terraces, four bedrooms, eight bathrooms, an expansive living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, an all-white kitchen with marble countertops, dual islands and an adjoining dining space, plus a screening room, separate family rooms and a den, plus a billiards room.
The primary suite is almost an apartment in and of itself, with separate seating areas, a fireplace, dual bathrooms, and major walk-in closets.

Beyond the penthouse, amenities in the exclusive building include 24/7 concierge and security, a huge pool with cabanas, a state of the art gym and fitness studio, a movie theater, and private wine storage.
Matthew initially bought the home in 2017 for $20 million, though the deal to sell it in 2021 for $21.6 million made it a record-breaking sale as the apartment became Southern California’s priciest condo in 2021. The actor sold it to Nick Molnar, the billionaire co-founder of tech company Afterpay, who had initially listed it for $28 million.

While the Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing author doesn’t live in the building anymore, it’s not devoid of A-listers, as right above Rihanna’s unit sits Denzel Washington’s $35 million penthouse, which occupies the top two floors of the building.
News of the million-dollar sale comes just two weeks after Los Angeles enacted its new mansion tax on April 1st, which requires sellers to pay 4% on sales of homes priced between $5 million and $10 million, and 5.5% on sales of properties at $10 million or above.
