The Weeknd rents a $9M Tampa pad for Super Bowl

(Page Six) – The Weeknd is staying in style in Tampa this week as he prepares for Sunday’s Super Bowl 2021 halftime show.
We hear the “Blinding Lights” crooner plunked down $100,000 to stay in a swank $9.1 million six-bedroom manse on nearby Davis Island. The 6,000-square-foot spread features a pool, bay views and a private dock.
While Super Bowl producers are covering all usual production costs for the show, the 30-year-old singer — real name Abel Tesfaye — is injecting big bucks to make sure it’s done his way.
“Abel spent almost $7 million of his own money beyond the already generous budgets to make this halftime show be what he envisioned,” his publicist told The Post.
On Monday, the singer teamed up with Postmates to feed frontline healthcare workers at AdventHealth Carrollwood with food from Tampa black-owned restaurant, Mama’s Southern Soul Food.
