Things are going from bad to worse for Britney Spears as manager Larry Rudolph fears she may never perform again.
As Spears’ long-term manager, Rudolph is closer to her than most. While she was due to resume rehearsals for her “Britney: Domination” Las Vegas residency, Rudolph now fears she won’t step back onto the stage.
Speaking to TMZ, Rudolph revealed, “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.”
Rudolph’s stark warning comes after Britney tried to reassure fans she’s doing fine.
Posting on Instagram, a distressed looking Spears told her fanbase that “all is well” despite this period of “stress and anxiety” for her family. After rumours that she’s been sent into a mental health facility ‘against her will’, the star said, “don’t believe everything you read and hear.”
The pressure of her shows and Jamie Lee Spears’ recent surgeries on his colon and intestines have proven too much for Britney.
TMZ first reported that Britney is seeking help from medical professionals and checked herself in at a facility. Spears has never had an easy ride to the top. Finding fame at such a young age must’ve tough for Spears, coupled with a series of high-profile splits and her famous 2007 breakdown where she shaved her head.
Rudolph has handled Spears’ career from 1998 to 2004 and 2008 to present. If he says the future isn’t looking bright for the pop diva, then chances are it isn’t. One thing’s for sure though, Britney seems determined to do her fans justice and is likely to perform if she can.
For the time being, we’ll just have to wait and see.
