There has been weeks of speculation, but now Entertainment has confirmed that it’s trying to bring Britney Spears to Las Vegas for a recurring gig at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
Spokeswoman Emily Wofford said Friday the company is in negotiations to install the pop princess on the Las Vegas Strip.
“We can now confirm the company is actively engaged in discussions with Britney Spears’ representatives regarding a potential headlining residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino,” the company said in a statement.
The 31-year-old “Scream & Shout” singer stoked rumors last week by responding with a “Viva Las Vegas” hashtag to a post from her dog’s Twitter account asking if puppies can gamble in Sin City.
Earlier this week, Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph revealed negotiations were down to two casinos, one of which is part of the Caesars Entertainment Group. The deal will reportedly be finalized once the pop star’s team decides on a casino.
“We are in deep negotiations and I’d be shocked if it didn’t happen. Hoping to have a deal done very soon,” Rudolph said.
Spears left her position on the television singing contest “The X Factor” in January, telling fans she wanted to refocus on her music.
Caesars Entertainment currently is promoting residencies by singers Cee Lo Green at Planet Hollywood and Shania Twain at Caesars Palace.
