12 Celebs Who Fake It By Renting Mansions, Instead of Buying Them
Celebs often fake it till they make it, but some stars fake it even after they make it. Did you think the swanky, A-grade luxury mansions you see pop stars and actors hanging out in, are actually owned by them? Those are rented mansions, which A-listers like Anne Hathaway, the Kardashian sisters or Mariah Carey rent out, sometimes at outrageous rates. Sometimes Hollywood stars rent out mansions wherever they are shooting for more than six months. Or sometimes they are just more comfortable renting luxe properties rather than spending millions on them. They get to fake it in style, and fans get to believe that their favourite icon lives in a totally plush mansion. So, who are the stars who rent out mansions or bungalows?
It probably makes sense that Justin Bieber doesn’t want to get tied down with a major property. Owning a home is not easy, and Justin is obviously smart enough to avoid the pitfalls of having a permanent residence. Plus, we hear he is a terrible neighbour, so it’s probably for the best. Justin currently rents out a beautiful LA mansion, which costs him $55,000 a month. In fact, in 2016, he also rented a 15-bedroom mansion in London which cost him £108,000 a month.
You’d think Lady Gaga is rich enough to own her own mansion by now, but the pop sensation has comfortably rented a tropical-style Bel Air mansion for years now. The 6,000 square foot mansion with a pool, costs her $25,000 which is quite cheap considering her lavish lifestyle.
Did you think the Kardashians own the beautiful Hamptons mansion wherever they shot their reality show Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons? The mansions was reportedly worth more than $12 million, and had six bedrooms, and was rented by the producers of the show.
Hotel heiress Paris Hilton has a jet-setting lifestyle. From partying in Miami, to sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week, she is flying around the world most of the year. But when she stays in her hometown LA, she rents a beachy mansion which costs her $65,000 a month.
