Is Britney Spears
about to make more dough in Las Vegas?
The pop superstar, who is in negotiations with Planet Hollywood about a Vegas show, may also be partnering up with Meatball Spot, an Italian restaurant that serves sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and as the name suggests, six different kinds of meatballs.
The moderately-priced eatery is set to open a new location south of the Las Vegas Strip on a property next to Planet Hollywood's auditorium. The theater, also known as PH Live, is where Spears would be performing.
"Meatball Spot is in negotiations with a major entertainer about a potential partnership," the restaurant confirmed to PEOPLE in a statement, without mentioning Spears by name.
During a trip to Vegas in March, Spears checked out PH Live and later visited the existing Meatball Spot location
in southeast Las Vegas. She has a long standing relationship with the owner of the restaurant.
Though Spears's Vegas residency show is said to be beginning as early as this fall, an agreement between Spears and the casino has yet to be formally announced.
