Okay, so we’ve got a post going down about my girl Britney and her iconic Britney Spears house. I feel like so many people give our Princess of Pop a hard time without taking time to consider that mental illness IS a legitimate concern that affects nearly 1 in 5 Americans. That’s 43.8 million to be exact according to the NationalAlliance on Mental Health (NAMI).
So, give the girl a break! She’s had a crazy life. If anyone deserves time to recuperate and get their head straight, it’s definitely this one.
Most of you have probably already heard the Brit buzz going around town surrounding her most recent stint in rehab. In April 2019, Spears entered what was coined as an “all-encompassing wellness facility” for an extended period of time due to stress and anxiety associated with her father’s ongoing battle with illness.
Jaime Spears, whom the pop star is very close with, has been having serious medical issues surrounding his intestines and colon and recently had to undergo two major surgeries. Unfortunately, the complications relating to these surgeries have been quite extensive and even resulted in a situation where the pop star’s father nearly died in early April 2019. Needless to say, he’s not doing well, and it’s taking a toll on Spears.
Then, we had the #FreeBritney movement, which the pop sensation took to Instagram to kindly and indirectly chastise for causing more damage than good:

I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago… I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment ??? You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you ❤️❤️❤️
Apparently, the hullabaloo was all started by two LA-based comedians who host a weekly podcast called Britney’s Gram, which takes a humous approach to Spears’ life and Instagram posts.
The two girls, Tess Barker and Barbara Gray, started a #FreeBritney movement that pretty much snowballed into insanity. People all over were questioning whether or not Spears was being held against her will and a massive online uproar ensured that was pretty much all for naught.
The good news is that Spears has officially checked out of the facility as of this afternoon (Thursday, April 25th). She was greeted by her 25-year-old hunky hunk of a boyfriend Sam Ashgari (you shameless cougar, you).
And for those of you who are wondering, apparently the time to herself has done the singer well. Spears commented that she lost 5 lbs. during her stay and even posted a workout video that randomly turned into a dance-a-thon. She’s still got it!

So, in honor of her big day, we’re answering our audience’s biggest questions on our baby girl Brit.
Where does Britney Spears live?
Spears currently resides in a gorgeous estate in the Thousand Oaks area of Los Angeles, California. Wanna know more? Just scroll below to check out the deets!
Britney Spears’ Homes: Previous and Current Mansions
Britney Spears House Thousand Oaks, CA (Current)
There must be something special about Thousand Oaks because the Princes of Pop currently lives in a massive, gated mansion situated on 20 acres, which she purchased in October 2015 for $7.4 million.
The 12,464-square-foot, 5-bedroom, 8 bath Italian villa is located behind two private gates in a secluded area of the uber-fancy Thousand Oaks, CA community.
The mansion has vaulted ceilings, a 2-story great room, an oak library, a chef’s kitchen with a breakfast room and 4 family bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. It also includes a luxury pool house with a granite kitchen, fireplace, a bath, and a 3500-bottle wine cellar. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a 3-green gold course on the compound, too. Get it, girl!
We’ve got more where that came from! Check out Britney Spears Home Photos and Address here!
Britney Spears House Kentwood Louisiana
In 1999, Britney was 18 years old and had hit it big. With her newfound fame and money to blow, Spears bought a 6,539 square foot custom-home on the outskirts of her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana. Her mom, Lynne, still lives there and this is where Britney stays when visiting.
*ps. Our Velvet Ropes co-founder is from the same area and boy are the locals proud! “Home of Britney Spears” signs and all 😉
Britney Spears House Thousand Oaks (Previous)
In November 2012 Spears purchased a $6.774 million, 8,456-square-foot, five-bedroom, single-story mansion in the gated neighborhood of Sherwood Country Club. During this time Spears was engaged to her former agent, Jason Trawick, so it makes complete sense that she’d want a fresh, new start. The home came complete with five full baths, two half-baths, a home theater, a game room, a media lounge and two offices. It also had a gorgeous pool and a wine cellar. Spears listed the property a few years later which sold in 2017 for a cool $7 million.

Britney Spears House Hidden Hills (Former)
In February of 2011, Spears had been renting a mansion in Los Angeles for $25,000 per month. Insanity. The $12.9 million, 19,107-square-foot home was decked out with the coolest of cool features – nothing but the best for her two sons. We’re talking an arcade, pool, tennis court, paddling pond and a spa – just to name a few things.
Britney Spears House Beverly Hills (Former)
2007 was a record year for Spears and not in the good kinda way. This is during the time the star gave herself her notorious buzz cut and was going through some major mental health issues. During this time she decided to throw down $6.75 million for a fully-furnished home in Beverly Hills off of the infamous Mulholland Drive. Spears eventually listed the home which sold four years later at a $2.5 million loss. Ouch!
Britney Spears House Malibu (Former)
Around the time Britney was married to the Grand Schmuck of All Schmucks, Kevin Federline, she purchased a gorgeous 9,130-square-foot home in Malibu for $13.5 million. The home included a dance studio, work-out studio as well as a recording studio. Two years later after the marriage had dissolved the star listed the home for $13.5 million.
Britney Spears House Hollywood Hills (Former)
In 2001 Spears released her sophomore album, signed a $7 million deal with Pepsi and co-authored a book. Spears upgraded to an official celeb-style home and threw down $2.975 million for a gorgeous mansion in Hollywood Hills. The pop star later sold the property to Brittany Murphy for a cool $3.85 million.
How old is Britney Spears?
The pop singer was born on December 2, 1981 – which makes her another one of my favorite Sadge celebs! Woot! Woot! As of 2019, Spears is 37 years young.
How did Britney Spears get famous?
Spears initially found fame when she was chosen to be a part of the cast for the 1990’s revival of The Mickey Mouse Club. Spears initially tried out for the show when she was just 8-years-old but was rejected because she was too young at the time.
Afterward, the family relocated to New York City where they sublet an apartment and Spears was cast as an understudy for a lead role in the Off-Broadway show Ruthless! During this time, she also appeared on the popular show Star Search and was cast in numerous commercials. In 1992 she finally got her big break and was accepted on The Mickey Mouse Club along with fellow celebs Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and Kerri Russell.
In 1997 Mama Spears decided she was takin’ this train all the way home and started shopping around for bigger and better things in the music department for her daughter. She was at one point in talks with Lou Perlman to join a group called Innosense (#whatongodsgreenearth), however, a conversation with entertainment lawyer Larry Rudolph led Mama Spears to shop her around to NYC labels.
The two took a day trip from Louisiana to New York and pitched 4 labels at one point, 3 of which turned her down due to the fact that everyone at the time was looking for pop bands, saying “there wasn’t going to be another Madonna, another Debbie Gibson, or another Tiffany.” Spears eventually signed with Jive Records and the rest, folks, is history. Those other guys are probably so mad right now.
