Singer-songwriter John Legend and his wife, model Chrissy Teigen, have bought a home in the Beverly Hills area for $14.1 million.

The remodeled contemporary-style house on close to an acre was formerly owned by pop star Rihanna, who sold the property four years ago for $5.03 million.

Designed for large- and small-scale entertaining, the flashy three-story home includes a billiard room with a wet bar, a home theater, and communal and formal dining rooms. Nine flat-screen televisions are within 8,520 square feet of open-plan space.

Other features include a chef’s kitchen with two islands, a gym, an office, three fireplaces and a glass-enclosed catwalk. Retracting walls of glass blend indoor and outdoor living spaces.

The master suite has an oversize steam shower, a sauna and a soaking tub, giving the home a total of five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

A patio, a viewing deck and a swimming pool are within the grounds. Views take in the ocean, canyon and surrounding cityscape.

The house came to market in January 2015 for $16.895 million, records show. More recently, it was listed for sale at $14.895 million.

Legend, 37, has won nine Grammys, including two awards for best R&B album, for “Wake Up!” and “Get Lifted.” Last year he won an Oscar for best original song for “Glory” for the 2014 film “Selma.”

Teigen, 30, appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2014. Co-hosting “Lip Sync Battle” on Spike TV and appearing on Tyra Banks” show “FABLife” as a food stylist are among her recent projects.
