Britney Spears may never perform again. No, not in the near future and possibly never again, longtime manager, Larry Rudolph told TMZ.
Larry Rudolph said: “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, not in the near future and possibly never again.”
Larry Rudolph has managed the Mississippi born singer for most of her career starting from her first album, “Baby… One More Time,” in 1999.
“I’ve been with her for two-thirds of her life, Rudolph said. “I look at her almost like I look at my own daughter. It’s very emotional for me … and really rough. Personally, I want for her to just find a peaceful, happy place — whatever that means for her. It’s not about a career anymore — it’s about life.”
The 37-year-old pop icon canceled her new show titled “Domination,” scheduled to hold at Park Theater at Park MGM in Vegas on February 13, because of her father’s illness. Britney reportedly spent time in a mental health clinic to cope with the trauma associated with her father’s health issues. Her father, Jamie Spears, was recently treated of a ruptured colon.
Rudolph says that “[Britney] is the one whose focus is on [getting better]. She’s driving it.” This runs contrary to the belief put forward by the “Free Britney” movement that she’s effectively imprisoned against her will. “I understand how much these fans love her and support her and I love that,” says Rudolph. “The part that concerns me is that it has no factual basis. The personal issues that Britney is dealing with are highly complicated and the conservatorship is there for a reason. The courts of the State of California take this very seriously. I hope the people allow her to have her private time.”
