Rihanna casually revealed that she has been secretly living in London for a year.
While eagle-eyed fans had already spotted her Sainsbury's bags for life strewn around her mansion, she confirmed the news in an interview.
RiRi's fans went wild as she confessed that she'd gone "incognito", wandering around the UK without anyone noticing there was a superstar in their midst.
The 31-year-old Diamonds hitmaker didn't give any hint as to where she'd been staying but according to the Mail Online , she has been renting a £16,000-a-week, seven-bedroom mansion worth £30million in north London.
Rihanna told the New York Times following the launch of her new fashion brand Fenty Maison: "I enjoy walking around the block. When I go walking, I try to keep a little incognito."
The townhouse in an exclusive part of London, hosts a sprawling landscape garden which has been spotted in the back of her Instagram Stories.
There a home gym, underfloor heating and even a lift between floors.
Rihanna – who is worth an estimated $260million – has been seen entertaining her friends in the lavish kitchen which comes complete with marble-top counters and steel fittings.
It's likely that Rihanna has been staying in London to be close to Paris where her new fashion brand Fenty Maison is based after she joined forces with luxury group LVMH.
Fans noticed something suspicious when they spotted a Sainsbury's bag for life lurking in the corner of a room in which Rihanna was posing for her little cousin Majesty who was taking photos of her.
A fan wrote on social media: "I honestly never thought I would see Rihanna next to a Sainsbury's bag."
Another added: "Rihanna owning a Sainsbury's bag for life. She is truly one of the people."
Someone else added: "I knew it! That's why there was a Sainsbury's bag for life in the back of that pic she posted! Can you imagine Rihanna at the self check out in Sainsbury's."
The four-storey property also features five bathrooms and two studies, where it's likely Rihanna has been filming her make-up tutorials.
RiRi has been sharing glimpses into her London life throughout the year but with her fans not any the wiser.
One evening she had her friends round to make ice cream desserts in the kitchen with the sink in the film the same as the one pictured.
The songstress, who hasn't released any new music since Anti in 2016, has been focusing on her make-up and fashion empire over the past few years.
Her fans, dubbed The Navy, have been begging for her for 'R9' and she recently confirmed that her ninth studio album was coming in 2019.
