Britney Spears is reportedly in "advanced talks" for a residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

The 'Toxic' singer - who called off her engagement to Jason Trawick and quit her role on 'The X Factor' last month - has been approached by several venues for an extended residency in the city but Planet Hollywood are thought to be close to agreeing a deal, according to People.

Britney has hinted at a Las Vegas deal, replying to a recent tweet from her dog Hannah's Twitter account which read "Mommy, are dogs allowed to gamble in vegas? Gonna cash all my bones in for chips." with a "I don't think so honey #VivaLasVegas (sic)."

However, friends aren't sure the 31-year-old singer will cope and believe she would be happier at home with her sons Sean Preston, seven, and Jayden James, six.

A source said: "I'm not sure just how good an idea Vegas is for Britney right now. If she can't handle 'The X Factor' - how will she be able to perform five days a week in Vegas?

"She's a homebody, she loves her sons and has her daily routine. At this time, she may need to concentrate on her health and happiness - not rebuilding her career."

The source also went on to detail how involved Jason - who has hardly been pictured without Britney by his side in the last year - was in their relationship and how he guided her through the stressful filming of 'The X Factor'.

They said: "At auditions, Jason would calmly escort Britney by the hand back and forth to her seat during breaks. He was there for her."
