A permanent hiatus? Four months after Britney Spears put her second Las Vegas residency on hold, the Grammy winner’s longtime manager says she may never perform again.
Britney Spears’ Ongoing Conservatorship Drama Explained
“As the person who guides her career — based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis — from what I have gathered, it’s clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency,” Larry Rudolph — who has managed Spears, 37, on and off since 1998. “Not in the near future and possibly never again.”
Rudolph, 55, added that he does not want the “Toxic” songstress to take the stage until “she’s ready — physically, mentally and passionately.” He noted, “If that time never comes again, it will never come again. I have no desire or ability to make her work again. I am only here for her when she wants to work. And, if she ever does want to work again, I’m here to tell her if it’s a good idea or a bad idea.”
The former entertainment attorney explained that the Mickey Mouse Club alum’s residency had to be axed because she was going through the “perfect storm” of events. “We had to pull her show because her meds stopped working and she was distraught over her dad’s illness,” he said. “Last summer, when she wanted to tour, she called me every day. She was excited. She hasn’t called me in months. Crickets. She clearly doesn’t want to perform now.”
