Britney Spears is set to sign a deal for a Las Vegas residency as she has been in talks with two casinos.
Sources say Britney Spears, 31, is poised to sign with Planet Hollywood in a deal that is thought to have been brokered by her ex-fiancé and former agent Jason Trawick.
Britney Spears’ longtime manager Larry Rudolph told Extra that a Las Vegas show is close to being announced, revealing: “We are in deep negotiations and I’d be shocked if it didn’t happen. Hoping to have a deal done very soon.”
A formal announcement is expected in the next few weeks – despite fears from fans over the toll such a gig could take on Britney Spears.
It is thought that her ex-fiancé Jason Trawick, whom Britney Spears split from last month, has helped to broker the deal with Planet Hollywood as he is good friends with boss Robert Earl, as is Britney’s manager Larry Rudolph.
Jason Trawick was Britney Spears’ former agent and was also joint co-conservator of the star’s person, which once gave him the authority to make decisions about her general well-being, such as food, clothing, travel and medical care, alongside her father Jamie.
Although, he excused himself from the legal relationship after their split.
One of the Caesars Palace casinos is also believed to be in talks with Britney Spears – despite the fact its spokeswoman recently said there were no openings in their superstar lineup of Elton John, Shania Twain, Rod Stewart and Celine Dion.
Emily Wofford, public relations director for Caesers Entertainment, said that the venue was “packed every weekend” for months and that the firm is “engaged with a number of today’s top artists in discussions regarding headlining residencies at our venues in Las Vegas”.
Although Britney Spears isn’t on the list at the moment, Emily Wofford said her company is “always interested in having artists with the caliber of Britney Spears performing at our theatres”.
