  • Britney Spears has reportedly signed a two-year contract with Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas

    How rich does Britney Spears’ latest career move look to make her? Answer: Very, verrryyy.

    The pop princess has reportedly signed a two-year contract with Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas which will see her rake in a staggering $200m.

    Following in the well-heeled footsteps of Celine Dion and Cher, Britney will apparently take up a long-running residency at the infamous hotel, where she will be committed to performing five shows a week for two years.

    But there are fears that the fragile star is taking on too much following her split from Jason Trawick and leaving the X Factor.


    Sources explained to the MailOnline: ‘I’m not sure just how good an idea Vegas is for Britney right now. If she can’t handle the X Factor – how will she be able to perform five days a week in Vegas?

    Adding: ‘She’s a homebody, she loves her sons and has her daily routine. At this time, she may need to concentrate on her health and happiness – not rebuilding her career.’

    Britney and Jason announced the end of their one-year engagement on Friday, with the singer releasing a statement saying: ‘Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.’

    Reports had suggested that Britney’s father Jamie had in fact brokered his daughter’s break-up with Jason himself, with Radar Online writing: ‘Jason wanted out, and in the fragile state that Britney is in, it’s not like he could have a rational conversation with her about it, so it was really between him and Jamie.

    ‘Jason and Jamie wanted to make sure that Britney didn’t lose it, so they had to water things down for her a bit.’

    The split came the same week Simon Cowell reportedly gave Britney her marching orders from her $15 million role on X Factor USA following her ‘low energy’ and ‘boring’ performance.
