Rihanna has splashed out $12 million on a new mansion.

The 'Diamond' singer bought the stunning 11,000 square foot home in Pacific Palisades and admitted she can't believe her luck at landing the palatial pad which boasts a large pool.

She tweeted: ''I literally wake up every morning at 5:30ish and stare at my pool til the sun comes up! Just waiting! Is this my life.''

The 24-year-old singer's new home also contains seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 20 parking spaces, according to real estate website Trulia.

It is unlikely Rihanna will be inviting Chris Brown over as she recently confirmed her split from the singer,

The volatile couple reconciled earlier this year even though Chris is still on probation for beating her up in 2009 but Rihanna took to her Instagram account on Tuesday (18.12.12) to post a message which appears to confirm reports the couple have called time on their relationship.

Rihanna, wrote: ''Being single sucks. The only thing I get to do anymore is whatever the f**k I want to do.''
