Britney Spears’ Longtime Manager Resigns

She wishes for the full legal arranged to be dissolved completely or altered. Her request for her father, Jamie Spears, to be removed from the arrangement has been denied.
The conservatorship is set to have another hearing July 14.
Larry, who has been Spears’ main manager since the early years of her career in the mid-1990, shared that he hadn’t spoke to the star in over two years. At this time, she told him she wanted to take “an indefinite work hiatus”.
Rudolph has now announced his resignation.
Deadline shares the letter he sent to Spears’ co-conservators Jamie Spears and Jodi Montgomery.
“James P. Spears and Jodi Montgomery, as co-executors of the estate of Britney Spears:
It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus. Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.
As you know, I have never been a part of the conservatorship nor its operations, so I am not privy to many of these details. I was originally hired at Britney’s request to help manage and assist her with her career. And as her manager, I believe it is in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed.
Please accept this letter as my formal resignation.
I will always be incredibly proud of what we accomplished over our 25 years together. I wish Britney all the health and happiness in the world, and I’ll be there for her if she ever needs me again, just as I always have been.
