"Britney and I have been friends for a long time. I've been seeing her as a friend. We haven't spoken about business."
- George Maloof, owner of the Sacramento Kings and the Palms hotel in Las Vegas, in a statement to LAtimes.com when asked if his recent dinners with Britney were business negotiations for a performance at the Palms Hotel or a 10-million dollar world tour.
Yes, and she's still *tinkering* around in the studio, too 😉
