Mariah Carey is reportedly in negotiations for a high-paying residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas
Mariah Carey has landed a multimillion dollar deal to perform in Las Vegas.
The ''#Beautiful' singer is in negotiations with Caesars Palace for a performing stint that will reportedly earn her more than the $30 million Britney Spears is receiving for her two-year residency in the gambling capital of the US, the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column reports.
Once the deal if confirmed, Mariah is expected to take to the stage in Las Vegas before the end of this year.
If the deal goes ahead, it seems Mariah - who has three-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with estranged husband Nick Cannon - has had a change of heart as it was claimed in November she was looking for a "mini residency" outside of the city.
A source said: "Mariah doesn't want to go to Vegas. She put out feelers to the Borgata in Atlantic City and the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut about a mini residency.
"She wants a stable, high-paying gig that will keep her close to her New York home. Mariah is crossing her fingers that she can figure out a way to make money on her own turf."
