Britney Spears Has Voiced Her Plans To Retire, Says Music Manager Larry Rudolph
The agent has now stepped down as his 'professional services are no longer needed.'
Britney Spears’ music manager Larry Rudolph has announced that he’s resigning as he notes that Britney Spears is set to retire.
Announcing his intentions to leave the role, the agent explained in a letter to Jamie Spears – Britney’s father and conservator, as well as Jodi Montgomery – co-executor of her estate, that his services are no longer needed as the 39-year-old has told him that she hopes to leave the music industry and hang up her showbiz shoes indefinitely.
In the letter, which was obtained by Deadline, it’s believed that Larry notes that he’s following Britney’s lead and understands that without her working in the entertainment industry, his role with her becomes obsolete.
“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,” Larry writes.
Explaining that this letter is his “resignation”, Larry adds that he has nothing to do with the conservatorship and was originally hired by Britney to manage her music career. Working together for over 25 years, Larry continues that he wishes her all the best, health and happiness, concluding:
“I’ll be there for her if she ever needs me again, just as I always have been”.
In the past few weeks, Britney’s hopes to remove the conservatorship which she’s been under for the past 13 years were denied in court – she labelled being under her father’s control as “abusive” in audio from the hearing.
It is being reported that an ongoing investigation into the statements Britney made at the conservatorship hearing is currently underway. The #FreeBritney movement too continues, with fans and friends seeking justice and freedom for the star.
