Britney Spears may never perform again, her manager says

16 May 2019

The gossip website says Spears' longtime manager Larry Rudolph told them that it is "clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency, not in the near future and possibly never again".

Larry Rudolph, her manager, said that it now isn't healthy for the 37-year-old to perform live or work on her Las Vegas residency, TMZ reported on May 14.

The 55 year-old NY born divorced father of three said Britney was 2/3 of the way through rehearsals for the reboot when her father, James Spears got ill in 2018. Rudolph says that, though Spears had rehearsed the show (the residency was due to launch on February 13), the Vegas engagement is effectively off, which is what prompted his speaking out in the early hours of May 15 (May 16 AEST). At the time, she tweeted, "I don't even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say".

He added of Spears" future, "I don't want her to work again "till she's ready, physically, mentally and passionately".

'Kevin won't allow the boys to spend more time with their mother until Britney is once again stable and therapeutic on medication. In January, Spears' "Britney: Domination" run in Las Vegas was paused indefinitely. He said, "She clearly doesn't want to perform now".

Last month, she spent time in a mental health facility, saying she needed "a little me time". According to sources who spoke to TMZ about it, Spears reportedly told the judge she wishes to be freed from her conservatorship, and that her father, Jamie Spears, committed her to that mental health facility against her will. "She was excited", Rudolph said. "We're all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him". I have no desire or ability to make her work again. "I am only here for her when she wants to work", Rudolph continued.

It is unknown what was said during last Friday's court hearing, though the judge reportedly ordered Spears to undergo a 730 expert evaluation, a competence examination typically given to children in divorce cases.

Rudolph has been in touch with Spears' parents, but reiterates that his involvement is "on a need-to-know basis". And, if she ever does want to work again, I am here to tell her if it is a good idea or not, " he said. "I hope the people allow her to have her private time".

Rudolph said he was putting her well-being before her career.
