It has been three months since Rihanna performed at the Super Bowl, but the halftime show has proven to be one for the books.
The “Umbrella” singer’s comeback performance drew more than five million viewers, and she also shocked fans by announcing that she was expecting her second child.
The performance actually changed the life of one man from Arizona, despite the fact that people couldn’t stop looking at the screen.
That man was Spyro Malaspinas, an online protection master who leased his five-room home to the Superstar for seven days before her exhibition.
Having fabricated a rewarding vocation in network protection, Malaspinas had bought a 6,400-square-foot home in Heaven Valley for an eye-watering $7.3 million ($5.8m).
A property management company asked him if he would be willing to rent out the extravagant house before the big gig.
As Malaspinas had proactively worked with the organization previously, he was offered a faltering $500,000 (£403k) to lease his home for the week.
Naturally, the 48-year-old couldn’t turn down the offer, so he took it, completely unaware that an A-list celebrity was about to crash at his house.
Mickael Chavet jokingly stated, “The last thing I am is a real estate baron.” “Added he: My pride isn’t too great.
I’m willing to leave for $500,000 per week.
Malaspinas was obviously delighted because the fee would cover his mortgage payments for the next two years.
However, until he signed a release form stating that Rihanna would be occupying the property, he did not discover who had rented the extravagant residence.
He told the Wall Street Journal that his 13-year-old daughter was “absolutely thrilled.”
Malaspinas admitted that he had been offered “crazy amounts of money” to sell the house, despite the fact that he has not yet returned.
Found near Phoenix and Scottsdal, the property was flawlessly positioned for Rihanna to get to the State Homestead Arena in Glendale – which is just a 30-minute drive away.
Rihanna announced that she was expecting her second child during the NFL performance, so the short drive was crucial.
She has already given birth to a son in May with rapper and producer A$AP Rocky; however, the “Don’t Stop the Music” singer has kept a low profile about her pregnancy and has not said when her second child will be born.
