Britney Spears is reportedly spending a staggering $90,000 (GBP50,000) on a 72-hour hen party to mark her last few weeks as a single girl.

While her fiance Kevin Federline goes gambling in Las Vegas for his stag bash next weekend (18SEP04), the TOXIC singer will be partying with eight of her closest friends at her $5.4 million (GBP3 million) Malibu mansion, where she will provide a stripper, free-flowing alcohol, luxurious cosmetics and movies - although their wedding is not until November (04).

A friend says, "Britney has really pulled out all the stops, she wants both herself and Kevin to have stag and hen weekends they will remember forever.

"She doesn't really want the attention of going out on the town, so she has opted to have a party at home, but it won't be your average girls' night in. There will be movies, pampering and even a stripper."
