Britney 'wants a quieter home life'

Britney Spears is house-hunting, preferably for something greener, quieter and with a bigger backyard, according to US court documents.

The papers, released today, show that Britney is seeking a house with a larger backyard that is closer to parks and recreation areas for her children, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

She also wants a 'less trafficked' locale than her paparazzi-stalked Beverly Hills home, which she bought for nearly seven million dollars (€4.4m) early last year.

Her father, James, requested the sale in mid-June, and a court commissioner agreed. James Spears is acting as his daughter’s conservator following several incidents of erratic behaviour by the 26-year-old singer.

The children’s father, Kevin Federline, has custody.
