Just seven years ago, singer The Weeknd, aka Abel Makkonen Tesfaye,was uploading his videos to YouTube hoping for success. He found it – a whole bunch of it. Now, the 27-year-old Canadian has just dropped $20 million on a mansion in the celebrity filled enclave of Hidden Hills, California.
The home is more than 13,000 square feet with 9 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and a 1,200 square foot guest house. For $20 million, The Weeknd also gets a home theatre, gym, wine cellar, and recording studio in his new house. The home features a saltwater pool, outdoor kitchen with a barbeque center, an entertainment pavilion with two fire pits and a covered patio. The property also comes with an eight stall barn for horses.
The Weeknd has a net worth of $30 million. He came to prominence after anonymously uploading a handful of songs to YouTube in late 2010. In early 2011, he released his debut mix tape "House of Balloons." His most recent album is 2016's "Starboy."
The Weeknd's Hidden Hills neighbors include Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Miley Cyrus, and Ozzie Osbourne.
