Adele hasn’t wasted any time transforming her new Beverly Hills mansion.
The songstress dropped $58 million on the 18,587 square-foot property previously owned by Sylvester Stallone last year.
But, rather than giving the walls a fresh lick of paint before moving in, she’s completely torn down the mega mansion and is currently rebuilding it.
Clearly, the 35-year-old was more fond of the land the property sits on rather than the home itself.
Her new pad, located in the exclusive guard-gated enclave of North Beverly Park, is now undergoing some pretty extensive remodelling.
The entire property has been ripped apart, with only the annex and swimming pool staying put.
Interestingly, she’s decided to keep the statue of Stallone’s character Rocky, which overlooks the huge outdoor pool in the backyard.
A few months ago, the actor revealed that Adele insisted his bronze statue of Rocky Balboa remain at the house.
Stallone admitted that he had every intention of taking the poolside sculpture of the fictional boxing champion punching the air with him.
However, Adele insisted it was staying, otherwise the deal to buy the house would be off.
The same can’t be said for the statue of a polo player on a horse on the opposite side of the garden, though.
As part of the remodelling works, Adele has had the statue torn down, which is likely to rub Stallone up the wrong way.
An avid fan of the sport, his family has a long history with polo, as his late father Frank played professionally back in his native Italy.
The Rocky legend previously stated that he thinks the singer has great taste, but we’re not entirely sure he’ll be happy with her plans.
Stallone was forced to reduce the price of the property significantly before it eventually sold.
Initially listed for $110 million, he reduced the price to $85 million, before he accepted Adele’s offer of barely half his original asking price.
To be fair, Adele won’t be bothered – she bagged herself a bargain and it looks like she’s determined to make the most of it.
