Britney Spears Might Never Perform Again, Says Manager Larry Rudolph
We all know American pop sensation Britney Spears, and some among us have even followed her tumultuous career. After many ups and down, currently, the singer is going through mental health problems and to improve her state, her longtime manager Larry Rudolph revealed to TMZ that she may not come back to perform again, at least not in the near future. He said that her medications have “stopped working.”
Spears checked into a mental health facility earlier this year. She is now out of the facility but still battling over her financial conservatorship. Since 2008, following her “breakdown”, her father has acted as her legal conservator, which gives him nearly full control of all her business, financial, and personal affairs. Earlier this month, Spears appeared in court to ask a judge to loosen the confines of that conservatorship, so that she is able to take decisions about her own life.
The decision was made “not to move forward with the Vegas residency,” he explains, adding that “she’s taking time to regroup and get her head together,” says Rudolph.
Rudolph told TMZ that he doesn’t “want her to work again till she’s ready, physically, mentally and passionately. 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.”
Spears’ problems have escalated after her father’s extended illness. Rudolph called it the “perfect storm,” and said that he “had to pull her show because her meds stopped working.” Spears’ new Las Vegas show “Britney: Domination” was withdrawn in January.
Rudolph said that there are no plans to resume the show at this time. “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.”
Rudolph 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.”
