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.

So I'm guessing tickets to see this woman are going to be horribly expensive to pay for her. She ain't worth $100,000,000 ! Couple a grand a most.

This will be a big mistake for ceasers and drag the brand down. She is not classic, she done.

I'd watch a Britney show for free, with free food and booze chips but for it's own benefit ... no way.

So, basically, she'll make $100 million + per year to walk around in a Xanax haze (she hasn't really danced in years and always looks like she's in a complete fog) and lip-sync her hits for 90 minutes a few times a week. Nice gig....

She can't sing, she can't dance, and she can't talk what is her act? You would be better off going to see a female impersonator than BS. He would tell jokes and dance to her music at least for a lot less money.

Y'all are stupid. "She's done" washed up" "it'd be a huge mistake". Her single is number 1 in 53 countries on itunes breaking a new record recently held by Adele. Her last album debuted at

I saw Britney when she previously performed in Vegas,....that was some big azz yellow python around her neck and body,......she put on a great show, and you should have seen ALL of the old pervs in the audience,...tryin' to keep up,....lol.
My only concern,.....the last few times I've seen Britney perform,....she just doesn't seem to have the energy and 'go get it girl' performance. Is it maybe too much for her anymore? Regardless, when that gal performs and she's into it,.....it's a hell of a show. Secondly,.....THANK GOD, she will still have guardian, conservator,...whatever,.....won't be as many vipers coming after her or her money,....like that snake Lufti (sp). He's slithers.
