Britney Spears’ longtime manager Larry Rudolph has claimed the singer may never perform again amid her mental health battle.
The singer, 37, was scheduled to resume rehearsals for her Britney: Domination Las Vegas residency after rescheduling the concert earlier this year, but according to the former entertainment lawyer, Britney will not return to the stage.
Larry, 55, told TMZ: ‘As the person who guides her career — based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis — 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 music executive has managed the artist for over two decades, having represented her career from 1998 to 2004 and 2008 to present.
Britney’s string of performances in Las Vegas were scheduled to premiere on February 13, with 32 shows planned through August 17, but was postponed on January 4 amid her struggles with mental health.
MailOnline has contacted Britney’s representatives for further comment.
The news will no doubt come to a surprise to her loyal fanbase, as the Baby One More Time hitmaker has been regarded as an icon in the industry for over 20 years.
