The troubled singer – who was recently given back some of her visitation rights to her two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline – viewed the five-bedroom, six-bathroom property yesterday afternoon (07.05.08).

The 7,300 sq ft mansion – which is not far from Kevin’s house in Tarzana – boasts vaulted ceilings, fireplaces, fountains, a spiral staircase, a Jacuzzi, a swimming pool with a spa, an indoor and outdoor dining room, a wine cellar, a family room and a designer kitchen complete with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances.

Britney, 26, recently came under fire after allegedly trashing the USD35,000-a-month mansion she rented in Malibu, California. It was claimed Britney never lived in the mansion, but held parties there, which resulted in massive damage.

The source said: “The house was left a wreck. Cigarette burns and cigarette butts were everywhere – and empty bottles of wine were strewed about the place.

“Most of the furniture was ruined with stains, tears or nicks. Rotting food was left in the refrigerator. Spilled wine soiled the carpets and floors. No one picked up after Britney’s dogs, and many ‘presents’ of dog poop were left behind for the owners.”

Meanwhile, Britney’s pregnant 17-year-old sister Jamie Lynn has revealed the Toxic singer has given some advice about parenting.

She said: “She told me, ‘There are going to be some long nights, but it is completely worth it.'”
