Spears’ manager has resigned, as per a statement which reveals that his resignation comes because of the singer’s intention to ‘retire’ from the industry.
Music manager, Larry Rudolph, is said to be retiring due to his ‘professional services’ being no longer needed by Britney Spears. His intentions to leave his role were allegedly announced in a letter to Jamie Spears, the singer’s father and conservator, and Jodi Montgomery, who is co-executor of her estate.
As per Deadline, the letter reads: ‘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.’, the letter added.
It concludes: ‘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 statement comes shortly after Britney faced another conservatorship blow, learning that a judge had denied her request for her father to be removed as her conservator. The ‘abusive’ conservatorship grants Jamie total stewardship over Britney’s fortune, medical decisions, and business deals.
