Celebrities seem to have the best of everything. Right from their luxury clothing, private jets to cars, among other items, they don’t mind spending exorbitant amounts of cash on their purchases.

And this extends to their homes. From large swimming pools, massive compounds, to amazing interiors, you might confuse these homes for extravagant hotels.

But this is where most of them live and spend the night. Here’s a look at some of the most beautiful and expensive homes of our favorite black celebrities:
