Britney Spears’ former Beverly Hills ‘Paparazzi-proof” house has been sold for $6.4 million, the New York Post reports.
Spears’ 6 bedroom and 6.5 bathroom property belonged to the “Oops… I Did It Again” singer from 2007 to 2012, shortly after her divorce from Kevin Federline. Listed by Josh and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the pop stars’ property sold after months on the market.
The Mediterranean-style home offered Spears an amenity much needed after her incredibly public divorce – privacy.
Altman called the house “virtually paparazzi proof” in an interview with People Magazine in July, when the house was re-listed with a $3 million decrease in price. The 12094 Summit Circle property was originally listed for $9 million in 2018, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Summit, one of the top gated communities in Los Angeles, is popular among elite LA residents for its privacy.
Boasting high ceilings and spacious windows, the 7,453-square-foot estate also comes with a chef’s kitchen, a home theatre and separate maid’s quarters. The foyer is topped with an elegant chandelier, followed by stone floors throughout the first floor. The living room opens up to a manicured garden, featuring a patio with a salt-water pool, a built-in fireplace and a raised spa.
Releasing Circus and Femme Fatale during her stay, this was also the home wherein Spears navigated some of her most tumultuous years, moving in and out of rehab while battling for custody of her two sons.
Now 39, Spears continues to fight in her personal life. Her father's highly-publicized conservatorship and a newly appointed “care manager” have had legal, financial, and professional control over the pop-star for the past 12 years. In July of this year, her mother, Lynne Spears, petitioned the court to become part of her daughter’s conservatorship.
Spears’ fans have increasingly advocated for her independence, creating the #FreeBritney movement with the hopes of giving her control over her $60 million fortune, toward which this most recent home sale will of course add. Spears’ conservatorship case will be revisited in February.
