America business tycoon Donald Trump has told Britney Spears to stop her partying antics and get back to work.

Star of the US version of The Apprentice, Trump sure didn't get his net worth of $2.9 billion (£1.4 billion) by partying with Paris and pals and he is keen is instil his hard-working attitude in the Toxic star.

Britney, who separated from hubby Kevin Federline in November, has been seen painting the town red with other showbiz friends. The mum-of-two boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James, filed for divorce from aspiring rapper 'K-Fed' claiming irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.

Speaking to gossip site The Scoop, the property mogul said: "She wants some free time but now, Britney, it's time to settle down and get back to work."

The 60-year-old business giant and ex-husband of Ivana Trump doesn't mince his words either, saying: "It's time to get back to being a mother and being a star."

And unless Britney does as Trump says, he reckons her career could soon disappear.

But fear not Trump, as Britney's manager predicts a new single from the Baby One More Time will be out in summer and thinks her seventh album will be hitting the shops across the world by autumn.
