BLM Founder Patrisse Cullors Spends Thousands Renovating Backyard of Posh $1.4M LA Home

The controversial Marxist co-founder of Black Lives Matter recently completed tens of thousands of dollars in renovations at her posh Los Angeles home, including building a new plunge pool and backyard sauna, according to a new report.

Patrisse Cullors, 39, the former leader of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, also added a children’s play area for her young son outside her 2,580-square foot three-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Los Angeles’ Topanga Canyon neighborhood, photos show.

Cullors, who resigned from the national group a month after The Post revealed that she had gone on a real estate buying spree last year, paid $1.4 million for the Topanga Canyon home in March 2021, according to public records.

At the time of her May 2021 resignation, Cullors insisted her “retirement” from the group that she had led for six years had been in the works, and was not tied to the controversy surrounding the shopping spree in which she amassed four properties for more than $3.2 million amid the group’s troubled finances.

Among the properties was a sprawling home attached to an airplane hangar and runway in an Atlanta suburb that she has since sold, according to public records.

Cullors also used donations to pay a company owned by her baby daddy, Damon Turner, $969,459 for “live production, design and media,” according to the group’s latest filings with the IRS.
