She grew up in the Bronx, far from the luxurious boroughs of downtown Manhattan.
But now, Jennifer Lopez – aka, Jenny from the block – has more than enough means to splurge on a $22 million New York City penthouse.
The mother of two has reportedly purchased a four-bedroom, six-bathroom bachelorette pad in a star-studded building, which is also home to new mom Chelsea Clinton and NASCAR racecar driver Jeff Gordon.
And the “Booty” hit-maker can certainly afford it. Source say Jennifer is reportedly close to signing a $35,000-per-show deal in Las Vegas, joining the Sin City residency ranks of Shania Twain and Celine Dion.
The 45-year-old singer has been candid about her modest upbringing in the past, revealing that she once had to share a bed with her two sisters, Lynda and Leslie, before she made it big. Never forgetting their roots, Lynda and Jennifer now run the Lopez Family Foundation, which helps children and families in need, and the singer was recently honoured for her charity work at theVariety Power of Women luncheon.
