According to a recent story, the controversial Marxist co-founder of Black Lives Matter recently finished tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of upgrades at her opulent Los Angeles home, including constructing a new plunge pool and backyard sauna.

Photos indicate that Patrisse Cullors, 39, the former president of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, has installed a play area for kids outside her 3,3 bedrooms, 3, bathroom house in the Topanga Canyon suburb of Los Angeles.

Images show a tiny structure that holds the sauna as well as a large plunge pool that is empty of water. The image also shows a covered slide and swing set for kids.

Public documents show that Cullors, who left the national organization a month after The Post reported that she had gone on a real estate purchasing binge last year, paid $1.4 million for the Topanga Canyon house in March 2021.

When she announced her resignation from the organization she had led for six years in May 2021, Cullors insisted that her retirement had been planned and was unrelated to the controversy surrounding the shopping spree during which she amassed four properties for more than $3.2 million while the organization’s finances were in disarray.

Among the assets was a sizable house in a suburb of Atlanta connected to an aviation hangar and airstrip, which she later sold, according to public documents.

According to the organization’s most recent IRS forms, Cullors also used contributions to pay a business controlled by her baby daddy, Damon Turner, $969,459 for live production, design, and media.

The revelations on Cullors’ residences and spending were dismissed as right-wing harassment, and she claimed that her earnings from speaking engagements and book sales had been used to pay for her assets.

Following the May 2020 murder of George Floyd, a black man whose demise at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer sparked protests all over the world, BLMGNF said that it received more than $90 million the previous year.

According to a celebrity real estate site, Cullors, who purchased the Topanga Canyon property through her business Abolitionist Entertainment LLC, paid cash for the home.

The $35,000 fence that Cullors constructed around the property last year is in addition to the backyard modifications.

The BLMGNF organization was still beset by financial issues after Cullors left.
