Britney Spears’ USD 1.2M childhood home is still safe despite the scam

Scammers have zeroed in on Britney Spears’ childhood home, a $1.2 million gem that’s been stuck on the market since October 2024. Despite its luxurious appeal, finding a buyer has been tough. Some potential buyers have floated the idea of transforming this villa into a modern-day Graceland, but so far, no one has taken the bait.

Britney Spears’ childhood home, a $1.2 million slice of pop culture history, has become a target for scammers as it languishes on the market. The sprawling villa, listed in October 2024, has sparked dreams of transforming it into a modern-day Graceland. But, so far, it seems buyers are hesitating to take the plunge.

Built in 1979, this single-story abode was Britney’s home base through her formative years. The Spears family held onto it until 2021, when her father, Jamie Spears, sold it for a mere $289,000. Britney has accused him of micromanaging her life to the extent of dictating her diet (hello, canned veggies and chicken), body-shaming her, and manipulating her to perform despite being too unwell to choose her own boyfriend.

Nestled in Kentwood, Louisiana, just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Mississippi border, this home became Britney’s when she was three in 1980. Exclusive photos from The U.S. Sun reveal the house remains a nostalgic time capsule. It’s a modest ranch sitting on nearly two acres, complete with pro-Trump flags fluttering above.

The 2,200-square-foot house boasts three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Britney’s former bedroom still showcases NSYNC stickers and ’90s pop decor, alongside some of her own artwork.

In her memoir, The Woman In Me, Britney reminisces about her chaotic childhood home, affectionately dubbing it a zoo but also the “cool house.”

According to Hulsey, the real estate agent who sold the house in 2021, many original features remain, including the dance studio where Britney first twirled into stardom. Despite these unique attributes, finding a buyer has been challenging, with the property languishing on the market for eight months.

Britney’s relationship with her family has been on rocky terrain since her conservatorship ended in November 2021. Her grievances with her father, who controlled her life and finances for 13 years, have been well-publicized. This rocky history perhaps casts a shadow over her childhood home, complicating its sale even as it stands as a monument to a pop princess’s past.
