Let’s put to rest the rumors about pop princess Britney Spears’ residency of her show “Britney: Piece of Me” at Planet Hollywood. New dates for her fall shows at Axis at Planet Hollywood will be announced shortly, with tickets going on sale early spring.
Her residency definitely continues to the end of this year, marking the successful conclusion of her current two-year contract. Discussions and negotiations are already underway about adding two more years to the pact.
“She’s very comfortable and happy with the Axis showroom at Planet Hollywood and living part time in Las Vegas, so we’re guessing that’s where she’ll want to stay,” I was reliably told.
“You have both parties who want a deal to work for another two years, so it deserves to happen.”
However, the Grammy Award-wining “Toxic” hit singer has to consider other opportunities that have been presented to her while in Las Vegas the past year.
She has a major touring offer to consider in 2016, and incredibly I’ve heard an amazing Wicked Whisper & Racy Rumor that another hotel on the Strip is ready to swoop in and sign her for a new two-year deal if Planet Hollywood negotiations break down.
Meantime, Caesars Entertainment executives are planning to sign Jennifer Lopez for a string of nearly 30 shows to program in and around Britney’s new dates planned for next year. J.Lo would start next January.
From another very reliable source, I am told that her management team and Planet Hollywood have agreed to contract terms. Only performing dates have to be decided upon around Britney’s new deal, and the contract is then ready for signature.
Britney’s four months of dating TV producer Charlie Ebersol is still going strong. At Saturday’s show that I watched, she proudly wore her leather-sequined jacket spelling out “I Love Charlie” for two dance numbers for everybody to see and share.
“At 33, she’s in a very happy place in her life with Charlie,” one of her show colleagues told me. “She’s really the happiest she’s been in a long, long time. He’s 32 and a great guy, and they make a perfect match. We are all — her family, her business colleagues, her cast and crew — personally thrilled that Charlie is in her life.
