Celebrity Real Estate: John Legend, Daisy Fuentes, Mike Tyson

Legends Live Here
It wasn’t home sweet home to Rihanna when she owned it, but a newly remodeled Beverly Hills house that the singer ditched a few years back is now the property of John Legend and his supermodel wife Chrissy Teigen.
The power couple – who are expecting their first baby – paid $14 million for the majestic modern. The spread has 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms and is loaded with amenities (gym, billiard room and theater) so the new parents won’t have to head out for anything except maybe diapers.
MTV Love Match Prompts Malibu Rental
What do you get when you marry a 1990s MTV VJ to a 1990s recording star? You get Daisy Fuentes and Richard Marx needing one less Malibu property to deal with.
Fuentes, 49, and Marx, 52, were married recently and are now living at his southern Cali abode. That has led Fuentes to list her oceanfront home for rent for $25,000. The 3,800-square-foot home is on Las Flores Beach and makes for a cozy little retreat, featuring 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms with vaulted ceilings and French oak floors.
Tyson Pulls Punch on Neighboring Home
Mike Tyson is a big spender. He’s shown that over the years by seeing his multi-million dollars in prize fighting money go down the tubes. But with his star rising again on the heels of his post-fighting career as actor and entertainer, Tyson is back to buying property.
Tyson has purchased a $2.5 million home on the same street in Las Vegas where he already owns. The new, 10,400-square-foot property is a 6-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom spread in a suburban enclave with a golf course. While there are no white tigers, like Tyson goofed with in his cameo in the Vegas-centric movie “The Hangover,’’ the new home does have a lot of marble and a swimming pool.
