While gossip columnists and celebrity magazines may quibble over their marital status, pop star Britney Spears and dancer Kevin Federline are said to have a new mansion in Malibu, Calif., to call home.

Purchased by the couple for nearly $6.9 million, the 9,000-square-foot house rests on a gated 1.5-acre lot and features eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday. Built in the 1980s, it has a tennis court, pool, spa, gym, gardens and and outdoor kitchen.

After their surprise wedding last month, the legality of the union between Spears, 22, and Federline, 26, was questioned.

A day after the Sept. 18 ceremony, news reports surfaced that the couple had not yet filed a marriage license, as they are required to do within 90 days under California law.

“I know we’re not completely legal until we file the license, which we’ll do next week. But in a real sense, a spiritual sense, we’re married. We’re just following our lawyer’s advice,” Spears told People magazine.

Spears’ net worth, including real estate, is estimated to be around $32 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.
