Britney Spears is reportedly planning to retire in the music industry for good, according to her longtime manager, Larry Rudolph. Recently, he announced that the singer is ready to hang up the mic and give up performing, and in turn, he submitted his resignation.

On Sunday night, Rudolph reportedly sent Spears’ conservator, Jamie Spears and Jodi Montgomery, an email. He revealed that the singer is officially planning to retire to the music business, presumably because of the news surrounding her over the past few weeks.

"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," Rudolph, who managed the singer through most of her career, wrote.

He added that he was not part of the conservatorship and he was only hired at the singer’s request to help and assist her with her career. Then, he announced that he is also resigning from the team because his “professional services are no longer needed.”

The news about Rudolph’s resignation came after Spears claimed that she never wanted to go on the European tour and was forced to perform. However, several sources opposed this and the singer was the one who reportedly begged to go and there are emails to prove this.

"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," Rudolph further wrote, ending the email.

The main question now is whether or not Spears is, indeed, retiring for good. Back in 2019, the superstar canceled a residency in Las Vegas when her father Jamie became ill. She hasn’t performed since then, so she’s likely considering retiring for real now.

In addition, previous reports have said that Spears won’t be performing again until her 13-year-old conservatorship is lifted. This has been a major controversy surrounding her in the past few years, and she didn’t hold back when spoke about it in court in June 2021.

At the time, Spears slammed her father, her family, Montgomery, as well as the conservatorship itself. The singer claimed that she was forced to go on tours just to make money and that all of her finances were controlled by Jamie and Montgomery.
