Britney Spears just added another couple of million dollars to her net worth. The newest judge on FOX‘s X Factor has sold her sprawling Beverly Hills estate for a whopping $4.25 million; well over the home’s $2.99 million asking price. And apparently, she could’ve gotten a lot more! So why did Brit and her peeps ask a judge to cancel the hearing that would’ve allowed other prospective buyers to ignite a bidding war?
Where are the guys from Million Dollar Listing when you need ‘em?!
Not that Britney Spears is in need of any more money after recently inking a $15 million deal to join FOX’s X Factor (on top of her many other lucrative business ventures), but the pop princess has people scratching their heads after her latest real estate move.
When a buyer offered to pay $4,253,000 for the Beverly Hills estate that she purchased in 2007, Spears and her conservators immediately asked to have a judge cancel the hearing that was scheduled for today (April 25), which would have allowed other interested buyers to come in with higher bids.
The judge granted their request, meaning the house will go for the $4.2 that was offered — still well over Spears’ asking price of $2,995,000.
Did Britney just really want the house to go to this buyer? Who knows?! We’re just glad that she’s still doing okay.
