Britney Spears Finalizing Deal For Her Own Las Vegas Show
It looks like Britney Spears could be moving to Sin City.Spears' team is negotiating the final details of a contract for her own show in Las Vegas. She's in talks with one of the Caesar group properties, according to TMZ.
It sounds like Spears is on the verge of becoming the new Celine Dion...except even wealthier. Dion pulled in $100 million a year for her residency at Caesar's Palace, but TMZ says Spears could get even more in this "astronomical" deal.
A source told TMZ that the deal is pretty much a sure thing: "There are several stipulations that could throw a monkey wrench in the deal, but it's basically done." Right now Spears' team is negotiating whether her contract will include just performing on stage or whether she will also be making appearances at the hotel, nightclubs and poolside clubs during the day.
This comes on the heels of some big moves in Spears' life. Earlier this week, she confirmed that she quit the X-factor and announced that she was splittingwith her fiance Jason Trawick.
