Britney Spears’ longtime manager resigns after singer voiced “intention to officially retire”

Larry Rudolph, the longtime manager of Britney Spears, has reportedly handed in his resignation after learning the singer is considering officially retiring.

Earlier today (July 6), Deadline published the full letter from Ruldoph, which was addressed to Spears’ co-conservators Jamie Spears and Jodi Montgomery, the latter appointed by court. In the statement, Rudolph claimed he has not been in contact with Spears for “over 2 1/2 years” following her decision to take an indefinite hiatus.

“Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire,” he wrote. He explained that he has never been a part of the conservatorship and its operations, and his work catered to her professional 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,” he added. The full letter can be read in its entirety here.

Rudolph had worked for Spears for 25 years, beginning well before the singer released her debut single ‘…Baby One More Time’. The manager remained in his post as the conservatorship began in 2008, though Deadline noted he stepped away for a brief period between 2007 and 2008.
