Beyoncé Buys A 7,500 Square Foot Church In New Orleans
——UPDATED 2:00 PM——
Beyoncé is now the proud owner of her very own church.
According to TMZ, Bey just purchased a stone structured, 7,500 square foot, New Orleans church–which is more than 100 years old. The property was listed at $850,000, which is what reports are assuming the superstar paid for the building. Beyoncé’s sister Solange reportedly lives nearby.
Though the church was built in the early 1900s, but has been out of commission as a place of worship for quite a while, due to its church members passing away.
A church in San Francisco recently held the first ever “Beyonce Mass,” and had more than 900 people show up for it.
But just because Bey’s buying a church, doesn’t mean that she’s going to keep it that way. Some reports say that she is planning to turn that church into a house for her family for when she’s in town, and will be living in New Orleans part time. Her and Jay Z did buy a mansion in NOLA a few years back, so it makes sense.
