Taylor Swift has reportedly purchased duplex penthouses worth $20 million (£12 million) in New York City.

The Love Story hitmaker is allegedly the mystery buyer of two luxury units in the Big Apple's TriBeCa district, properties that were previously owned by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson.

He listed the adjacent duplex penthouses, which cover the top two floors of a boutique building, in November (13) for $19,950,000 (£12,007,226).

In January (14), rumours swirled that Swift was scoping out apartments in Manhattan, and last month (Feb14), the TriBeCa lofts were sold for an unspecified price to an unknown buyer.

When combined, the massive penthouses boast seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and wrap-around terraces.

Swift also has properties in Nashville, Tennessee, Beverly Hills and California, and a beachfront mansion in Watch Hill, Rhode Island.
