Rihanna has splashed out $22 million on a villa in Barbados — so that she can spend more time with her family.

The singer — who’s currently on her Diamonds world tour — bought a palatial waterfront villa at One Sandy Lane, where S imon Cowell also owns a home. Rihanna purchased the 10,000-square-foot pad just down the beach from the famous, five-star Sandy Lane Hotel. It had been on the market for $21.8 million. “Rihanna bought the house after renting it for her family last year,” a source said. The source added that she planned to spend more time in Barbados with her mother, Monica Braithwaite, and grandfather, Lionel Braithwaite. RiRi is also planning to buy a place in New York.

She discreetly viewed Manhattan apartments when she was in town last month for her tour dates and Fashion Week, and her manager, Jay Brown, has taken over the search. “The plan is that when her tour is over in November, she’ll move to New York and spend time jet setting back and forth,” said the source.
