    Britney Officially Planning To Retire; Manager Larry Rudolph Quits

    After 13 years of a conservatorship which she has said has left her "abused" and "traumatized", things are suddenly moving very very quickly in Britney Spears' efforts to reclaim her own independence.

    Just a week after a well-publicised court day in which she addressed the conservatorship publicly for the first time, and four days after her co-conservator Bessamer Trust officially quit, Britney has now made it known that she has no plans to return to music anytime soon.

    While she has yet to discuss her plans publicly, Britney's longtime manager Larry Rudolph (who, incidentally, she alluded to several times during her court hearing) has revealed the news in a letter he sent to Britney's co-conservators - her father Jamie Spears and the controversial Jodi Montgomery. As well as the bombshell about her retirement, Rudolph's letter also elicited other tidbits of information, including the fact that he hadn't talked to her in over two and a half years until today - an interesting point given that her record label has released several songs under her name in the last year alone.

    Quote

    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.

    Larry Rudolph

    While we're somewhat reluctant to trust anything that Britney allegedly said that we're not hearing from her very own mouth, Britney's plans to retire haven't come as a total surprise to fans. Last year, her son Jayden stated in a controversial Instagram live that Britney may never return to performing; and in her own Instagram posts, Britney has said that was unsure if she would ever return to music again.

    Still, the news is a sad moment for Britney fans who have supported her recording career for the last 23 years.

    As sad as this can be, I think releasing music under her name without even asking her is truly awful. 

    I Hope her stans will leak all of her music so her greedy dad won't make anymore money out of her. 

    She'll bless every leaked song, cause it's gonna turn against that pos of her father.

    I'd be really sad if she never makes music again, but at the end of the day I want her to be happy. Ideally, I would love if she took a few years break and came back with the kind of album that she's always wanted to make instead of what her label always made her make...I'd be interested to see what she came up with!

    Alternatively lots of people don’t retire forever. With changes hopefully on the horizon with her conservatory, I’m sure she needs time to reorganize her life and appreciate freedom. Then hopefully a huge comeback!

    Personally speaking, after The Singles Collection, she should have retired. Gone out on top of her shit.

    Agh! A peak for sure, but Femme Fatale has some good/great stuff. To me at least. But after that…

    To me, Glory was a real return to form for her. I'd be sad if I'd never gotten to hear that album.

    Meh. She looked so absent during Femme Fatale.

    I love Glory, too, but I genuinely don't believe she wanted to make that album, despite how amazingly present she sounded.

    I'm not sure about if she wanted to or not...But I could equally argue that she didn't want to make Blackout or Circus at some points 🤔 And yet they're still great albums!

    Good point! It is a career, and a lot of artists sometimes ‘phone-in’ good stuff anyway.

      A few hours later, Britney posted this on Instagram, using the hashtag #FreeBritney for the first time:
      I'm so proud of her and hoping that her new layer will lead to some significant changes! Stay strong Britney!

      In a 24-minute statement against the conservatorship she’s lived under for 13 years, Britney Spears sounded off before a Los Angeles probate judge Brenda Penny on Wednesday, saying that she wants to sue her family and that she was “abused” by a previous therapist, among multiple other accusations.
      “I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized,” she said, during a hearing that was livestreamed to the media by the court. “I just want my life back.” She said she wants the conservatorship, which she feels is “abusive,” to end “without having to be evaluated.”
      She also said when she said she was okay in Instagram posts she shared over the past year, “I was in denial.”
      Shortly after her statement, the court recessed, and after its return, the transmission was stopped.
      Wednesday’s hearing came after years of near-silence on the issue from the singer, although the New York Times published a report earlier this week citing private legal documents that state she has been trying to end the conservatorship for several years, citing mismanagement by her father and the extreme legal costs involved.
      A lightly edited transcript of Britney Spears’ statement follows. It includes run-on sentences and unclear statements, but the context seems relevant:
      Poor Britney.  It must have taken a lot of bravery to get up in court and be so vulnerable like that.
      No matter what anyone thinks about her mental state or the conservatorship, I don't see how anyone can justify having her dad as the sole conservator or not letting her choose her own lawyers or therapists or having a right to control her own pregnancies.
      Honestly, I know she doesn't want to do the psychological assessment, but I hope she's able to do it and get a clear result so they can end the conservatorship once and for all. If not, I hope they're able to provide her with a new conservator who isn't related to her and isn't trying to take advantage of her.

      What do you guys think about this? I personally think he had nothing to really apologize for...Sure, he said Britney was cheating but she probably was, and I remember him defending Janet in an interview.
