Britney Spears intends to retire from the music business according to her longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, who just submitted his resignation as per TMZ.
Rudolph sent an email on Sunday night to Britney's personal conservator, Jodi Montgomery, and the conservator of her estate, Jamie Spears announcing that after a wonderful twenty-five years of working with Britney, he is going to resign.
"It has been over 2 and a half 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," he said.
"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."
Larry's resignation comes on the heels of Britney's testimony in which she said she was forced to perform even though she didn't want to do the European tour.
TMZ broke the story as various members of Britney's conservatorship had said that her story doesn't match the facts presented.
Sources connected to the conservatorship told the outlet that the people involved in the tour will tell a very different story at the next court hearing, saying: "She had nothing on her calendar for almost all of 2018. She then asked management to find something for her to do so she wouldn't be bored for a year."
Allegedly, once Britney was on tour, she didn't want to be there and was finding "every excuse to leave the tour, at which time she made up the story about being forced to do it."
Whether Britney was forced or not, if she really is retiring from the music industry, as she's vowed never to perform as long as her dad was part of her conservatorship, she no longer needs a manager.
"I will always be incredibly proud of what we accomplished over our twenty-five 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," he finished in his email.
