Not only did Rihanna just go Gold with her latest album, Talk That Talk, but she just unloaded her problematic L.A. home for $ 5 million. Deets inside, plus what her good friend The Dream had to say about why he won’t be working with Rih’s frenemy Ciara…
She purchased the home over 2 years ago. Yet hasn’t even lived in it. Thanks to severe water damage, Rihanna had to put her 10,000 sqft, 8 BR, $ 6.9M home on the market 6 months ago. The Beverly Hills Post Office area home was listed at $ 4.5M, but was actually just sold for $ 5.03M.
So she can celebrate her sell, plus her TTT album nabbing Gold certification on December 16th after surpassing 500,000 units sold. Congrats!
Meanwhile, Rihanna‘s homie The Dream has some words about the Ciara drama he spoke about a while back. The writer and the "Promise" singer seemed to have been good friends kicking it courtside at games, making music together, and hanging out together. But Dream isn’t trying to continue that ish.
He told media a while back that he just wouldn’t be writing for Ciara anymore, so folks assumed there was beef. But Dream told Tim Westwood from BBC 1Xtra in Part 2 of his interview, it’s only because of contracts:
“I have a contract under Def Jam so it’s only certain people I work with. [The executives] were real smart by putting that in there, I made them pay for it.”
By the way, L.A. Reid recently said Ciara’s new album is coming along.

Also, Dream just tweeted the new cover for his new single "Roc," which should drop by this Friday:
