Adele Drops $10 Million on Nicole Richie’s House Next Door (www.dirt.com)

Although it was never on the market, records reveal Adele has forked out $10 million for the 90210 home of her close friend — and longtime next door neighbor — Nicole Richie. The English-born music superstar and the American media personality have shared a property line since 2016, when Adele paid $9.5 million for a stately residence within an exclusive gated enclave that’s also notably home to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lawrence and Katy Perry.

The price Adele paid for the property represents a big win for Richie and her husband Joel Madden, who shelled out “just” $6.7 million for the home back in 2015. Built in 1957, the house has been renovated and expanded since; today, the place has a decidedly traditional exterior, though the structure itself is unconventionally long and narrow. Tucked high into the mountains above Beverly Hills, the Coldwater Canyon property is just a 10 minute jaunt to the Beverly Hills hotel or the Sunset Strip — traffic allowing, of course.
