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.

The self-styled ‘Queen of Pop’ picked up a relative bargain set on 1.2 hectares of land, with a seven-bedroom house, plus another 2-bedroom guest house, pool and basketball court.

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).
