SHE is worth £20million, so it’s little wonder Ellie Goulding has had to find some inventive ways to splash her mountains of cash.
And I can reveal she has chosen to follow in the footsteps of some of her fellow pop stars by investing in a number of mega-plush properties — which are guaranteed to boost her bank balance.
After setting up Miss EG Properties, the Love Me Like You Do singer has ploughed £3.4million into homes.
Ellie’s portfolio includes a £1.3million mansion in Worcestershire and a £1.6million mews house in West London.
A music insider said: “Buying fancy houses is popular among musicians who want to put their money into ventures which are a safe bet when it comes to securing a big return.
“Pop and rock stars often advise one another to go into property, and pass on recommendations about what to do and what business partners are best to work with.
"Ellie is really serious about her investments, which is why she went one step further by setting up her own company to handle it all.”
Ellie has recently moved back to the UK from New York, where she had been living with her fiance, art dealer Caspar Jopling.
She admitted she hated the “bonkers” US city and managed to persuade Caspar to swap sides of the Atlantic.
Ellie said: “I was like, good riddance, because New York is insane and it’s really not for the faint-hearted. I am glad to be back home.”
I wonder if either of the mansions have taken their fancy . . .
