    Britney Spears Cuts Ties With Restaurant
    Thu Nov 28, 8:16 AM ET

    "NEW YORK (AP) - Whether Britney Spears (news) is a girl or a woman, she's no longer a restaurateur.

    Spears has pulled out of Nyla, the midtown Manhattan eatery she opened just five months ago.

    The pop star, who turns 21 on Monday, said in a statement that she has "terminated her relationship" with the restaurant she formed a partnership with in March because of mismanagement and "management's failure to keep her fully apprised."

    The restaurant at the Dylan Hotel, which she named for New York and her home state of Louisiana, served Southern-inspired cuisine. But it was plagued by lousy reviews and slow business; management recently changed the menu to American food with an Italian flair.

    Spears said in the statement this week, "I wish the restaurant and its current ownership continued success," adding that she had no involvement in Nyla's day-to-day affairs, and never earned any money or other benefits from it."

    BULLSHIT!!!

    She pulled out because the restaurant wasn't turning a profit, and she knew it. Even celebs were crying about they had to wait forever to get a table and/or a reservation.

    As for her not earning any money or other benefits from it, you don't enter into a partnership into something as large as this without expecting some sort of financial gain from it. She named the fucking place, she set up the menu flair, she chose the location (since she moved to NY). I'd say she was more than just a "partner".

    Bitch.

    Boy you seem more pissed off about this matter than I would expect you'd need to be. Almost as if you had a personal take in this deal.

    Look, we don't know the whole story here so let's not rush to crucify the girl.

    I ultimately don't care much either way, just commenting that you seem to be taking it to heart.

    Yes [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Whats the suprise though? the thing wasnt working out so she bailed. Big whoop! Lot's of people (with spare money!) buy businesses and have them managed by other people. And when it doesnt work they either bail, or get different management.

    This is not news that one should pop a forehead vein over!

    Granted the whole 'gee-Im-a-celebrity-so-I-gotta-own-a-restaraunt' things a wank and been done to death, but you gotta do something with all that spare money. Like try to make more money. Stocks, property, businesses. Whatever.

    And the sooner she blows it all on restaraunts, the sooner we get to see the fish sandwich! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I'm sure business would have been great if they put a few nude photos of her on the walls.

    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Hmmm....turns 21, which means she gets control over her own money/financial affairs. The first thing that they teach you in Restaurant Management class is that 90% of them fail.

    Smart move, although they will sue.

    Still, the fish sandwich thing sound good to me.

    A lot of restaurants don't make it long enough to see their 1st anniversary, and it ain't the first celeb restaurant to change menus or be involved in lawsuit between partners, won't be the last.

    What's wrong with pulling out of something that's not making money? Count your losses and get the hell out! She's just being smart.
