The We Found Love singer plans to relocate from America to London in May while she films a new fashion reality series for Sky, and has been looking for the perfect home to live in during her three-month stay.

A source told The Sun: “Rihanna is coming back to Britain to shoot her Sky Living reality show and has decided to settle down a bit while she’s over.

“Although there may be occasional trips away she’ll be based in London. Rihanna has instructed her team to find a mansion in or around the capital.

“Earlier this year she considered buying a property in east London but now she’s looking elsewhere as she’s decided the pad will need gates to keep away superfans and photographers.

“Since she started shooting the show – a search for new fashion designers – she’s got really into it and wants to commit fully. And the crew behind the show have been surprised at the effort she’s putting in.”

The 24-year-old is said to be a huge fan of Britain, and has been looking to put down roots for some time.

An insider previously said: “Rihanna loves England and the British sense of humour. She has been over to the UK a number of times and loves it more and more.”

“She has looked at apartments and town houses between the Kensington and Earl’s Court districts.”
