Adele is monopolising her Beverly Hills suburb, having just purchased a third home, next to the other two she owns, in a star-studded neighbourhood.
New photos show the magnitude of her growing Beverly Hills property empire after purchasing her third home from Nicole Richie and her musician husband Joel Madden, with the house sitting next door to both her current home and the house she purchased from ex-husband Simon Konecki in 2019.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom mansion, with pool and basketball court, was sold for $9,950,000 on May 26. Her trio of properties look to have potential to create a giant compound.
Her neighbourhood domination is akin to Ed Sheeran’s epic property move, in which the singer splashed out some of his estimated £160million fortune to create his own extraordinary estate – dubbed ‘Sheeranville’ – including five properties bought for a total of £3.7 million.

Some of Adele’s closest Hollywood friends live nearby such as Jennifer Lawrence. In 2016, the singer purchased a four-bedroom, six-bathroom home for $9.5 million, complete with pool and summerhouse.
After splitting up from Simon in April 2019, Adele clearly didn’t want to break the family dynamic. The following month, she bought the six-bed property opposite for $10.65 million, so that her former spouse could still be close to their son Angelo, eight.
Adele’s latest purchase was originally bought by Richie and Madden in 2015 for $6.7 million, which is directly opposite her BFF Lawrence.
Her first two properties were purchased under the names The Gatefield Trust and Todd Gelfand, a partner at Adele’s business management company Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman.
