Adele renovated £42million LA mansion as she got rid of all Sylvester Stallone film set
ADELE is overhauling her £42m Los Angeles home to remove all the film-themed decor left behind by former owner Sylvester Stallone.
34-year-old British bought the property from the US movie star earlier this yearburdening him with a whopping £31.7m mortgage.
The Skyfall the singer applied for permission to renovate the interior of the large mansion with eight bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
She wants to strip him of all references to Rocky and Rambo — two of Stallone’s most famous characters.
Stallone statues and artwork were everywhere, according to the real estate agent selling the property.
The website says the living room has “lots of Rambo memorabilia,” including a “unique, large piece of graffiti” that Adele is said to be in the process of removing.
There’s even a “memorabilia room and office” that houses a “tall statue” of persecuted Vietnam vet John Rambo, who first appeared in 1982’s First Blood.
Rocky Balboa – Stallone’s legendary boxing character – inevitably makes an appearance at the property, located in the exclusive Beverly Park neighborhood.
A statue of Rocky raising his fist — which he did on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the first film in 1976 — adorns his “infinity pool.”
An avid polo fan Stallone there is also a horse player on the other side of the pool.
His late father, Frank, was a professional polo player in his native Italy.
76-year-old Stallone once said in an interview that “playing polo is like trying to play golf during an earthquake.”
He said: “It’s weird when you’re on a horse, you think you’re like Rambo and you have to charge around, but that’s not what the game is about.
“It’s about patience. I have to remember that for a long time.’
Reports claimed Stallone wanted £90million for the property, but agreed to a reduced price in February.
This happens when Adele revives her redesigned Residence in Las Vegas to great acclaim – although she admitted she had “never been more nervous in my career”.
