Britney Spears is set to follow in Jennifer Lopez's footsteps by taking over a restaurant. Lopez has recently taken charge of Pasadena, California, diner Chronical and now Britney has announced plans to invest in a New York restaurant.
Britney will co-own a new restaurant, tentatively called Pinkey -the nickname given to her by on-off boyfriend Justin Timberlake.
The eaterie will be run by restaurateur Bobby Ochs, who has previously teamed up with celebrities including Patrick Swayze in business ventures. The restaurant, on East 41st Street, is scheduled to open by the end of May (2002).
