Britney Spears sells her home, y'all

Britney Spears has finally got rid of her cursed mansion -- she just sold it for $4.2 million after four years on the market. Which other celebrities are getting rid of their palatial digs?

Britney Spears gets rid of old homeThe final tie to Britney Spears' dark past is finally gone: She just sold her former Beverly Hills home for a cool $4.2 million, according to Forbes. The house — best known for being the home base of the singer's 2008 meltdown — has been on the market since 2008.

Spears hasn't lived there since all of the drama went down. Instead, she's holed up with fiance Jason Trawick in a $25,000-a-month rental mansion in Thousand Oaks, California.

What does the house have to offer? Plenty. Brit Brit purchased the five-bedroom mansion on a whim back in 2007 at the height of the housing bubble. It had bad vibes for her, though — she was carried out of the home on a stretcher during one of her psychiatric meltdowns.

Spears isn't the only one unloading property, though — Jennifer Aniston and Ricky Martin both unloaded property recently. Aniston let go of her two pre-war West Village NYC condos for $6.5 million to a mystery buyer. A nice sum, right? Well, she lost about $600K with the sale — and she just purchased it in 2011.

"We tried New York," the actress, 43, told People last month, referring to her and boyfriend Justin Theroux. "It was a little rough with the paparazzi. It didn't feel like the New York I grew up in and knew."

The couple just purchased an 8,500 square foot mansion in Bel Air for $21 million.

As for Martin, the Evita star just unloaded his $10.6 million dollar Miami Beach mansion after five years on the market. He's now rumored to be living in a 2,637 square foot condo in NYC with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

Must be rough to be rich, eh?
