Looks as if Gwen Stefani isn’t the only celebrity doing a little moving and shaking in the real estate game this week.
No, we’re not talking about Donald Trump, although he has built a large percentage of his fortune through developing real estate.
The subject of this post is the incomparable Britney Spears, who has moved into a new house, real estate sources confirm. Brit’s new digs: a nice $7.2 million Mediterranean-style home in an exclusive, gated community just off Mulholland Drive in Beverly Hills.
Spears has already left the sprawling Malibu mansion where she lived with her estranged husband, Kevin Federline, and their two children.
“She’s moved in,” said one nearby homeowner who asked not to be identified. “She’s a neighbor.”
THG NOTE: Dynamite drop-in, neighbor!
The new 7,453-square foot house has five-bedrooms, six bathrooms, a pool, media room, library and a terrace with a view of Los Angeles. Although the property is officially listed as being in escrow, the commando queen liked it so much that she has taken possession of the dwelling and the previous owner’s contents.
Given the high-profile neighbors in this Beverly Hills setting, the new community will afford more privacy for Spears and her two young sons, Sean Preston Federline and Jayden James Federline. Plus, she surely doesn’t want any paparazzi snooping around trying to snap hot pics of that new tattoo.
“It’s a great gated community where the tour buses won’t be stopping at your front door or lookiloos driving by,” said Kurt Rappaport, president of Westside Real Estate Agency. “She got good value for the property.”
And we continue to get our money’s worth out of these nude pictures. Everyone wins.
