Adele was willing to walk away from the purchase of Sylvester Stallone's Los Angeles mansion if it didn't include an iconic piece of decor.
Stallone told The Wall Street Journal that when he sold his home last year he planned on bringing the "Rocky" statue that looks over his Los Angeles pool. Adele reportedly purchased the home from Stallone, but the statue needed to be included in the sale.
"That’s a no deal. That’s gonna blow the whole deal," Stallone recalled Adele saying.
Stallone came around and let Adele keep his Rocky Balboa statue. "I like what she’s doing, she’s making it gorgeous," he added.
The "Rocky" franchise became a household name after the first film's debut in 1976. "Rocky" went on to win three Oscars and Stallone received a nomination for best actor in the film. In 2016, Stallone was nominated for best supporting actor after reprising his role as Rocky Balboa in the spinoff, "Creed."
According to Harper's Bazaar, Adele purchased the home for $58 million. The home – situated in a celebrity enclave in Beverly Hills – reportedly has eight-bedrooms, 11-bathrooms.
The home features a screening room, a cigar room with a custom bar, an eight-stall garage, an infinity pool, a spa and an art studio, among other amenities.
The outlet reported that Stallone built the home on the 3.5 acre lot after purchasing the land in 1994.
In May, Adele took to Instagram to share a picture with her boyfriend, NBA agent Rich Paul, posing outside their new home. Paul was holding keys as the couple smiled happily in the photo.
The "Chasing Pavements" singer took out a nearly $38 million mortgage on the home in February 2022. The property has reportedly been dubbed by Stallone "the house that ‘Rocky’ built."
The price tag probably isn't an issue for Adele, 34, since this is her fourth mansion in Los Angeles. The singer’s net worth is approximately $183 million.
