A cybersecurity expert unknowingly rented his Arizona home to world superstar Rihanna during Super Bowl week for $500,000, covering two years of his mortgage.
Spyro Malaspinas, 48, of Paradise Valley, rented his $7.3 million five-bedroom, five-bathroom home to Rihanna for six days before the Super Bowl, but he had no idea it was the Super Bowl title that offered him the price tag. He couldn’t get over it.
“My daughter was very happy,” said Malaspinas. Wall Street Journal. ‘Last thing I’m a real estate baron.’ My pride is not that great. I wouldn’t mind going out on $500,000 a week.
The 6,400-square-foot San Miguel Avenue home is conveniently located 30 minutes from State Farm Stadium—where the Super Bowl was held on Feb. 12—and offers amazing amenities, including a large in-ground pool and sitting area with a pool-connected fireplace, And plenty of space indoors and outdoors for entertaining.

Spyro Malaspinas, 48, of Paradise Valley, had no idea Rihanna was the one who initially rented out his house, but said his daughter was ‘very happy’ after finding out.
The pool area is elegantly designed with square tiles on the lawn, as well as pool loungers and a personal covered bar.
The one-story home includes two living rooms, a private gym, a wine cellar, and a large backyard perfect for relaxing in the Arizona sun. It also has a bocce field, a pickleball field, and a golf course, according to TMZ.
The kitchen has a gorgeous marble island with light, smooth wood cabinetry with gold accents on the stove hood and appliances around the space. It is connected to a small dining area located between the kitchen and a small sitting area.
Much of the house has wooden beams attached to the ceiling and large windows that let in plenty of natural light.
The bathrooms are all white in design with a white sink with chandelier over it, a white marble shower and a large vanity.

The cybersecurity expert has yet to return to the one-acre property — which is located between Phoenix and Scottsdale — since Rihanna occupied the home offering him “massive sums of money” to sell the house, which he bought in 2022.
Rihanna used the Super Bowl to announce her second pregnancy. The nine-time Grammy winner surprised fans with a baby bump during her highly anticipated comeback at Super Bowl 57.
The 34-year-old, who gave birth to her first child just nine months ago, sent social media into a frenzy when she took to the stage and rubbed her belly in front of a global audience of millions at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, in February.

Shortly after her performance, the baby news was confirmed by her representatives.
The Super Bowl marked her first time on live television since 2018, as she joined DJ Khaled on stage to sing Wild Mindts at the Grammy Awards.
Rihanna started the show hanging on a platform high above the field as she belted out her single B**ch Better Have My Money. She was wearing a loose-fitting crimson jumpsuit that covered her curves and was loosely tied over her.
She shares her first child, who was born on May 13, 2022, with rapper A$AP Rocky, who kept a low profile at the event. The two have kept their growing family under the radar, and so far neither musician has shared their baby’s name.
