Restaurant biz may be beckoning Tyson


Mike Tyson may become a partner with Sugar Factory, the restaurant that thrives on celebrity sightings and “Couture” candy.

I’m not sure what kind of business partner he wants to be. But Tyson met with Sugar Factory execs on Saturday.

They showed him different candy products and brainstormed ideas for a future collaboration.

After that meeting, Tyson took his wife, Kiki, to the Meatball Spot at Town Square. When Tyson overheard a family singing “Happy Birthday” to a little girl, he walked over and gave her a Sugar Factory Couture Pop.

So maybe Tyson’s title at the restaurant should be Sugar Daddy?

THE BRITNEY DAILY PLANET

Dear Britney Spears, if you do land a Vegas residency, your old tabloid connections might follow you here. For instance:

On Saturday night, your ex-fiancé Jason Trawick partied at club Surrender.

A few dollars ago, Trawick was making deals for the two of you, as your then-agent.

At Surrender, Trawick hung with DJ Eric Prydz, who was nominated for a Grammy (but didn’t win). Trawick boasted on Twitter he and the DJ became friends.

So Britney, which of your old connections will come to Vegas next to buzz around your media feedbag? Kevin Federline? Shar Jackson?

It’ll be the Britney wheel of misfortune around here.
