Britney Spears to sell $12M mansion just six months after buying it with husband Sam Asghari, here's why
CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: Britney Spears is reportedly selling her $12 million Calabasas home that she bought with her husband Sam Asghari just over six months after the couple moved into the lavish mansion. The pop icon is putting the 11,650-square-foot property back on the market as sources claim that she hasn't "fallen in love with it." Britney purchased the stunning Californian property back in June for $11.8 million.
According to TMZ, a few friends close to Spears said she is hoping to sell the mansion this year because of failing to "fall in love with the new home". The six-bedroom home, which was previously owned by Justin and Hailey Beiber is located in the same neighborhood as her ex-husband Kevin Federline and boasts a wine cellar, a cinema room, and a relaxing pool. The lavish estate is embellished with chandeliers and ornate furnishings.
At the time of writing, it is unclear if the pop star will start the hunt for a new mansion, or if she will return to her lavish Thousand Oaks mansion, which she purchased for $7.5 million back in 2015. Back at her estate in the Oaks neighborhood, Spears will find Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian Barker next door.
"Britney loves her new house. She picked it out with Sam," People magazine reported at that time. "She wanted a fresh start with Sam. It's been very important to her to have a home that she picked up without having to ask for approval from [dad Jamie Spears]." It was in November 2021 that the singer's nearly 14-year-long conservatorship under the control of her father was finally terminated.
The news of the house sale comes after Spears’ spouse Asghari slammed the rumors claiming that he "controls" his wife on social media. After a string of concerning uploads on the ‘Toxic’ hitmaker’s social media, fans accused her 28-year-old husband of being in charge of her Instagram. While speaking to TMZ about the accusations, the model denied all the claims targeting him as a controlling husband. "No, I don’t even control what we have for dinner. You know, in the past, there has been a lot of stuff going on, so I understand where [fans are] coming from. They're just being protective. If anything, they're being good fans," he said.
