LOS ANGELES, CA — Britney Spears’ may never be fit to resume performing in Las Vegas, her longtime manager, Larry Rudolph said Wednesday.
The singer, who’s spent most of her life in the limelight is suffering and simply isn’t feeling well enough to resume performing in Las Vegas, Rudolph told reporters. Spears checked into a rehab facility earlier this year to help her with the mental strain of her father’s illness and the rigors of performing.
“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 told TMZ.
He called her father’s illness during Spears’ rehearsals for a Vegas reboot a “perfect storm” for the singer.
“It was the perfect storm. We had to pull her show because her meds stopped working, and she was distraught over her dad’s illness,” he said, according to TMZ.
The Vegas residency, which was supposed to kick off February 13, was put on ice.
Spears explained her decision to her fans on Instagram.
“A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time,” Spears wrote on Instagram.
Rudolph said it’s always been up to Spears when she wanted to work and when she didn’t.
“Last summer, when she wanted to tour, she called me every day. She was excited. She hasn’t called me in months. … She clearly doesn’t want to perform now.”
For the future, Rudolph said, “I don’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.”
