Britney Spears may never perform again, TMZ reports


Britney Spears enjoys a family outing with Jayden Federline, Maddie Aldridge and Sean Federline at Planet Hollywood Disney Springs in Orlando, Fla., on March 13, 2017.

In April the Circus songstress reportedly checked herself into a mental health facility after struggling to deal with the health issues of her father, Jamie Spears, The Blast reports.

Britney Spears' return to the stage is looking bleak amid a contentious battle over her conservatorship with her parents.

As for Spears' Vegas residency, it appears that it may not be back on for a while, and potentially not ever.

Now her manager Larry Rudolph claims that the 37-year-old singer may never perform again due to her mental situation.

For the future, Rudolph said, "I don't want her to work again 'till she's ready, physically, mentally and passionately".

"Kevin won't allow the boys to spend more time with their mother until Britney is once again stable and on medication". She was excited. She hasn't called me in months.

"Last summer, when she wanted to tour, she called me every day". And, if she ever does want to work again, I am here to tell her if it is a good idea or not, " he said. At the time, she tweeted, "I don't even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say".

Last month, she spent time in a mental health facility, saying she needed "a little me time".

"I am only here for her when she wants to work".

"Just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me".

While ET's source says Spears' team "continues to encourage her to get long-term help", Spears "has to want that and so far she seems to be more focused on having the ability to make her own decisions". The personal issues that Britney is dealing with are highly complicated and the conservatorship is there for a reason. The courts of the State of California take this very seriously.

Rudolph also spoke to Variety about the "Free Britney" movement, which saw fans suggest the star was being imprisoned against her will.

"Functioning without medication isn't an option for her", the source adds.

"Spears became a teen pop phenomenon in 1999 with her debut single ".Baby One More Time" and subsequent hits like "Oops!.

Rudolph shared that he has been receiving information about Spears' current medical condition on a "need-to-know basis" and that is how he is determining her career plans.
