Rihanna looking for U.K. home

Rihanna is house-hunting in London to find a place to live during the filming of her U.K. fashion TV show in the summer (12), according to a tabloid report.

The Umbrella star will team up with Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts to find the next big British designer in the upcoming series, and the Bajan beauty is reportedly looking for a pad in the British capital where she can stay during the May to July (12) filming.

A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Rihanna is coming back to Britain to shoot her Sky Living reality show and has decided to settle down a bit while she's over. Although there may be occasional trips away, she'll be based in London. Rihanna has instructed her team to find a mansion in or around the capital.

"Earlier this year she considered buying a property in east London but now she's looking elsewhere as she's decided the pad will need gates to keep away superfans and photographers."
