Her manager has stepped in.
Britney Spears will not work again until her mental health improves, so says her longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, telling TMZ that her medications have “stopped working.”
In the interview, Rudolph said that he doesn’t “want her to work again ’till she’s ready, physically, mentally and passionately. If that time never comes again, it will never come again.
"I have no desire or ability to make her work again. I am only here for her when she wants to work. And, if she ever does want to work again, I’m here to tell her if it’s a good idea or a bad idea.”
Back in January, the 37-year-old cancelled a residency in Las Vegas and later checked into a mental health facility. She is now out of the facility but embroiled in a battle over her financial conservatorship and concerns over her father’s health.
Stress over her father’s extended illness has exacerbated Spears problems. Rudolph called it the “perfect storm".
The long-time manager confirmed that there are no plans to resume the show at this time.
“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.”
Earlier this month, a judge in Los Angeles ordered an expert evaluation on Spears’ conservatorship, which has been run by her father.
TMZ notes that Rudolph is not directly involved in Britney’s conservatorship arrangement, claiming he is “only given medical information that directly impacts Britney’s career.”
