Britney Spears is in secret negotiations to stage a major comeback spectacular in Las Vegas, according to reports.
The pop star was spotted dining with Palms Hotel + Casino owner George Maloof Jr. in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (20May08), fuelling speculation her next show will be a Sin City extravaganza.
Insiders claim the dinner at Il Sole was a business affair.
Maloof Jr. and Spears have been friends for years, and the pop star's ex-husband Kevin Federline and her father Jamie have both had business dealings with the casino boss in the past.
According to the new issue of America's National Enquirer, Spears is planning a "multi-million dollar stage production she hopes will jump-start her career".
A source tells the tabloid, "She wants to make a splashy comeback in Las Vegas. She wants the show to be full of high energy and flashy costume changes."
Spears is reportedly in negotiations to perform a string of shows for an estimated $10 million (GBP5 million).
