On the market since last June for US$25 million, this week Madonna snapped up The Weeknd’s (yes, that’s the correct spelling) Hidden Hills mansion in California for a reported US$19.3 million.

Hidden Hills is a gated community in the Santa Monica Mountains region of Los Angeles county, and is home to many actors and celebrities.

Canadian popstar The Weeknd (real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye) bought it for US$18.2 million in 2017, the same year it was built, according to reports.

So, in one way, both pop musicians got a deal.

According to Vanity Fair, Madonna now owns four properties: in London, Manhattan, and a farm in Bridgehampton (NY).

Meanwhile, The Weeknd owns a $21 million penthouse in the Westwood suburb of Los Angeles, and recently renewed his lease on a $60,000 a month penthouse in Tribeca (NY).
