Britney Spears' longtime manager Larry Rudolph is speaking out on his client's behalf because he believes her fans need to know what is going on. Rudolph told TMZ that Britney may never perform again. He and other professionals who are treating her think she should not participate in the Las Vegas residency she has been given.

The talent manager and former entertainment lawyer added that it’s not about her career anymore. It's about her life, and he wants her to find a peaceful, happy place which she doesn't have right now.

Britney Spears and Larry Rudolph

Larry Rudolph has managed the singer, dancer, and actress for most of her career since from 1998 to 2004 and from 2008 to the present time. Rudolph told Variety he has been managing the 37-year-old singer about two-thirds of her life. He added that he looks after Britney almost like he looks after his own daughter.

The 55-year-old talent manager does have his own children. He has twin boys and a daughter by his first wife and no children by his second wife.

What's Going On with Britney Spears?

Spears' Las Vegas residency was scheduled to start on February 12, 2019, but it was postponed because her father was hospitalized for a ruptured colon. At the time, the singer was scheduled to undergo a psychological evaluation for her own mental health.

One of the highlights of any singer's career is to get a Las Vegas residency. For Britney's assignment to be postponed and later canceled indicates the seriousness of her mental state. According to Spears' manager on May 15, her Vegas engagement has been called off because she is not in the mental or physical shape to continue rehearsing for the number of shows she will be required to perform. She might never get the change for another residency. Rudolph added that the public needs to know that her performing is not the main focus now.

Her manager emphasized that his role is to handle her career. However, she needs to take time off to regroup. She needs to focus on her own life. Rudolph did not beat around the bush. He said, "If she never works again, she never works again."

Britney's manager tells her friends and fans:

“Let her be a civilian for a while. She’s given so much. Give her time.”

Britney's History of Mental Challenges

Britney has had several people looking out for her well being for many years. Attorney Andrew Wallet was her co-conservator until he resigned in 2008. Her father Jamie Spears was also his daughter's co-conservator along with Wallet. After the attorney resigned in March, Jamie became her sole conservator.

After postponing her residency, Britney voluntarily checked herself into a health facility and stayed there for a month because of stress. She shared on social media that she was taking some "me time." Spears left on a few occasions for a short period of time during her stay. For instance, she was allowed to leave on Easter Sunday to visit with her longtime boyfriend, Sam Ashari.

Britney has shared several Instagram posts since she left the facility last month. She posted a video to her fans on April 24 after her fans organized a "Free Britney" movement. She told her fans that her family has been going through some stressful times. She encouraged them not to worry, and she promised them she will be back very soon.

Even though Britney's parents have been divorced since 2002, they both appeared with her in a Los Angeles court last Friday at a Status Hearing, according to CNN. Judge Brenda Penny decreed that the pop star would undergo an expert evaluation. When the singer left the hearing, she was photographed wearing no shoes. That brought back memories of her erratic public behavior in 2007 and 2008, which led to her father being appointed her conservator. The singer's next court date is set for September 18, 2019.

Future of Britany's Music

Spears is still signed to RCA Records. Even though her Las Vegas residency has been called off, her manager says she might record again. In fact, Rudolph mentioned that the singer has been slowly working on a project. He said she will focus more on the project when she is ready.

      I have always had a heart for this young woman. I have bipolar also and it is a very challenging disorder. And of course, there are other factors. I pray all the best for her. God can do anything with a heart that seeks after him. That is my prayer for her.

      I'm not particularly a Britney fan, but I am a fan of good mental health. If this young lady needs some time to recover and get on with her life, I hope the public restrains from constant prying. She's given so much; now, she needs to give herself some healing. Peace be with you, Britney. speedy recovery. Great article, Margaret.

      I hope that this young woman finds peace and can live a life out of the spotlight. It is difficult enough to have mental health issues and to have them spread round the world certainly cannot be helpful Sending Angels and love and blessings her way and to you ps
