Actress Brittany Murphy may spell her first name slightly differently than BRITNEY SPEARS, but the 8 Mile star is happy to follow in the pop princess's footsteps in other ways.

Murphy, who became a tabloid favourite herself when she dated ASHTON KUTCHER in his pre-DEMI MOORE days, splashed out nearly pounds 3m on Spears' Hollywood Hills apartment and struck a deal to keep all the singer's furniture and fittings.

Spears owned the place when she was still dating JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and she left behind many mementos of their time together. Now Brittany is apparently leaving everything just as it was when the other Britney departed.

"When Britney and Justin had the house built, they furnished it themselves," one source told the New York Post. "When they split up and moved out, they left everything as it was. Brittany didn't change anything. There's still Justin's black baby grand piano, which Brittany has been using. She likes living with Britney and Justin's old stuff. She doesn't think this is strange at all."

IN more property news, a lawyer who bought the old Pacific Palisades home of California Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER and wife MARIA SHRIVER for close to pounds 5m is suing the couple, claiming they damaged the swimming pool and the tennis court and never told him about the mould in the movie screening room.

NAOMI CAMPBELL'S relationship with pop star USHER is said to be on the rocks ( because he is too much of a diva!

The supermodel, famed for her demanding ways, is said to be sick of being controlled by the singer, who reportedly wanted her to behave a certain way.
