KEY POINTS

  • Britney Spears and her manager Larry Rudolph have not communicated for over two years
  • Rudolph was incredibly proud of what he and Spears accomplished in the last 25 years
  • He wished Spears all the health and happiness in the world and said he would be there for her if she needs him

Britney Spears' manager has decided to resign because he is convinced that this is what's best for the pop star.

The "Toxic" singer's longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, decided to quit his job for Spears amid her conservatorship battle. According to Rudolph, he already tendered his resignation to her co-conservators, her dad Jamie Spears and court-appointed Jodi Montgomery, Monday.

"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," he wrote in a letter obtained by Deadline.

"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," he added. 

Rudolph requested that Spears' conservators accept his letter as his formal resignation. He also expressed how "incredibly proud" he was of what they accomplished together in 25 years. Rudolph has been Spears' manager since 1995. He ended his message with well-wishes for the pop star.

"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," he concluded.

Spears' mom, Lynne Spears, who has remained mum about her conservatorship battle recently opened up about the matter. She admitted that she has "mixed feelings about everything."

 "I don't know what to think...It's a lot of pain, a lot of worry," she said. "I'm good. I'm good at deflecting."

In one post on Instagram, Spears admitted that she had been pretending to be fine in the past two years. The "Gimme More" singer shared that she learned it from her mother who "always pretended like everything was ok" for her and her siblings no matter how difficult her day was.
