There was a time when celebrities stuck to movies, televisions, plays and music; however, these days, they get involved in everything from restaurants and clothing lines to wineries and hotels. There is nothing a celebrity won’t put his or her name on and we’re beginning to think that this might not be a good thing, especially considering that some of these business ventures can fail. Some of these celebrities should really stick to what they are good at and leave the entrepreneurial pursuits for someone more capable and experienced. Here are 9 celebrities with failed business ventures!
9. Britney Spears
Britney Spears opened Nyla, a restaurant that featured dishes with a Cajun and Southern flair, in 2002 at Manhattan’s Dylan Hotel. The restaurant received terrible reviews, was cited for several health code violations and quickly began to suffer from financial problems. In an effort to save the ailing business, the restaurant underwent a menu overhaul, switching to Italian dishes, which caused several of its original chefs to quit. Less than six months after it opened, Spears severed all ties with the restaurant.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
