Britney's Restaurant Close To Collapse

Since opening in June, Britney Spears's New York restaurant Nyla is looking to be in serious financial difficulties. When Nyla opened it was $350,000 over budget. Many staff have already been sacked and chef Brad Gates has just resigned due to the financial problems. He was quoted as saying, "There's no one coming into the restaurant now. It's been hard to buy food because they're not giving me any money."

A spokeswoman responded by saying that there was problem with mismanagement and, "the restaurant is getting back on its feet."
