Who's house? Brit's house
Britney Spears' real estate magic: Infamous meltdown manse goes for $1.25million over asking price
Turns out Britney Spears' dramatic meltdown of 2007/2008 has paid off . . . at least in the rocky California real estate market. According to TMZ, the pop star's 15,930-square-foot mansion has sold for $4.25 million — an impressive jump up from the original $3 million asking price.
It seems like only yesterday when we watched Spears strapped to a stretcher as she was carted from her Beverly Hills digs. Four years and two hit records later, the pop star is ready to move on.

Under the conservatorship of her father James Spears, who has handled his daughter's finances since 2008, the singer was initially required by the state to attend a court date in which members of the public could offer higher bids on the infamous home.
As of Tuesday, however, a judge accepted Spears' request to cancel the public session, which was scheduled for today. It's official — the $4,250,000 offer is a go. Sadly, it's a far cry from the $6.8 million Spears paid in 2007 at the height of the housing bubble.
According to Forbes.com, the Mediterranean-styled villa boasts "five bedrooms, including a master suite with his-and-her baths and fireplace, a maid’s quarter, a backyard with pool and spa and a three-car garage." Spears has not lived in the house since her removal in January 2008. She's opted instead for a string of high-end rentals.
Since December, the pop singer has set up shop with fiancé and former agent Jason Trawick at a $25,000-a-month unit in Thousand Oaks.
