BAD TASTE Spears was all smiles at the Jun. 27 opening of Nyla

Britney Spears is going through another break-up. The on-hiatus pop goddess has ''severed all ties'' with Nyla, the ill-fated New York eatery she opened with much fanfare five months ago. A statement from Spears' publicist said that the singer did not receive ''any money or other benefit'' from the restaurant, and that she had never been involved in the details of its operations. ''It's not easy to deal with a powerful celebrity such as Britney,'' Nyla owner Morris Moinian told the New York Post. ''We all decided she should stay out.''

Spears, who is being targeted by creditors who want her to settle Nyla's debts, only visited the restaurant three times, according to the Post. Plagued by financial problems and bad reviews, Nyla is on its third chef and is switching its cuisine from quasi-Cajun to Italian. The restaurant may change its name too, according to the Post.
