Britney Spears’s longtime manager Larry Rudolph says the singer may never perform again. Spears cancelled a residency in Las Vegas in January and later checked into a mental health facility.
Confirming the cancellation of her Las Vegas residency, her manager said “She’s taking time to regroup and get her head together, she’s putting herself ahead of everyone else, and I’m proud of her for that.”Randolph continued by saying, “If she never works again, she never works again. My role is to handle her career when she wants a career. If she comes back strong and full of desire and passion and wants to do it, great. If she takes off six months or six years, it’s totally fine. To me, it’s about her finding her happy place. 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.”
The singer appeared at a conservatorship hearing last week and caused some alarm when she was photographed leaving it barefoot, evoking memories of her erratic behavior in 2007 and 2008, which led to her father being appointed her conservator. The next court date is set for Sept. 18.
