Major moves are taking place for Britney Spears‘ team.
For, her longtime manager Larry Rudolph has announced that stepping down as the singer’s manager due to her “intention to officially retire.”
More details below…
In a letter obtained by Deadline, Rudolph writes:
“It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus. Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.”
“As you know, I have never been a part of the conservatorship nor its operations, so I am not privy to many of these details. I was originally hired at Britney’s request to help manage and assist her with her career. And as her manager, I believe it is in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed.”
“Please accept this letter as my formal resignation.”
“I will always be incredibly proud of what we accomplished over our 25 years together. I wish Britney all the health and happiness in the world, and I’ll be there for her if she ever needs me again, just as I always have been.”
The news of her potential retirement and Rudolph’s resignation comes after Spears’ bombshell testimony last month.
As it stands now, Britney’s conservatorship – which spawned the #freebritney movement – is headed by her father Jamie Spears. The next hearing about overturning the ‘I Wanna Go’ singer’s conservatorship takes place on July 14.
