Britney Spears

VERY Close

To Closing Vegas Deal

1/13/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0111_las_vegas_britney_Spears_articleBritney Spears' team has almost locked an enormously lucrative deal which will make her a fortune in return for appearing in Las Vegas ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Britney is seriously considering picking up stakes and making her residency Las Vegas -- something just made easier after her split with fiance Jason Trawick.  She's been negotiating with one of the Caesar group properties to appear in a Celine Dion-type show.

Sources connected to the negotiations tell us ... from Brit's standpoint, "The deal is a go. There are several stipulations that could throw a monkey wrench in the deal, but it's basically done."

One of the outstanding issues -- exactly what Britney will be doing.  There's back-and-forth over whether she will just perform on stage at a big theater multiple nights a week, or whether she will also make appearances at functions in the hotels, nightclubs and pool day clubs.

Our sources say the money being negotiated is "astronomical" -- more than Celine's $100 mil a year.

I find this so hard to believe. I'm happy that Britney seems to be fairly stable now, but do people actually think she can support a Vegas show. She's all autotune and flash - plus mental illness. She'll crumble like a cracker. Sad, but true.

She's a money machine for those around her. Can't let her stop working. Too bad she'd give up love for more millions. She's going to be a lonely faded blond bombshell before she knows it.

So..kfed will be putting sean and jayden on a plane every friday to fly them out to their mother in vegas to be a weekend mom?

she has joint custody and her kids are in school now. mon to fridays

does she think she is going to give the kids a stable school and friend enviroment in vegas mon to friday ?

does she think kfed is going to fork over full custody for her career gimmick in vegas??

what friggin planet are you pr people for britney on?
any judge will see she cares more about being a circus ring master on a stage , out of state rather than desiring to be a full time mother where her kids are stable in school in california.. geeez.

They are going to regret giving her that money. Celine gets on my nerves, but she is a far better singer than Britney. Plus, the people that like Celine are older and have more disposable income and therefore more likely to pay the high ticket prices for a concert. Sure Britney will sell out constantly at first, but a Vegas show is night after night. Will people really keep coming in droves, and will Britney remain stable enough to keep up with the schedule?

And oh, just because a person hits 31 with kids doesn't mean they should just roll over and DIE! Hell, I'm 29 and it's only getting better! I'll be praying for her instead of ripping her to shreds judging and being negative! Hope all you other people on here can do the same!

Isn't a stint in Vegas generally how you END a career?

Sounds like settling down in one place like that would be good for both her and the kids, while bringing in a ton of money.

If they are smart, all they need to do is make the production of the show amazing so the audience is in awe of the epicness of it and not focusing on Britney's lack of singing talent and dancing ability.
Britney lipsyncing around the stage will just be an extra. People will pay money to gawk at Britney and see the spectacle of the show.

Britney's shows aren't just about her lip syncing. Everyone who goes to a Britney concert knows for a fact that the production is amazing. She keeps everyone entertained...and the last time I checked you can entertain people even if you're lip syncing. The stage, the costumes, the dancers and everything that centers the show is just amazing. Britney's tour (Dream Within A Dream) was out of this world. Everyone at that time knew she lip synced. Its really nothing new...
