Sources say: “She is not in mental or physical shape to resume rehearsals for the series of shows, which were supposed to kick off back in February. ”
Her manager Larry Rudolph tells TMZ:
“As the person who guides her career — based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis — from what I have gathered it’s clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency, not in the near future and possibly never again.”
Rudolph tells us it’s always been up to Britney when she wanted to work and when she didn’t. He said, “Last summer, when she wanted to tour, she called me every day. She was excited. She hasn’t called me in months. Crickets. She clearly doesn’t want to perform now.”
As for the future, Rudolph says, “I don’t want her to work again ’till she’s ready, physically, mentally and passionately. If that time never comes again it will never come again. I have no desire or ability to make her work again. I am only here for her when she wants to work. And, if she ever does want to work again, I’m here to tell her if it’s a good idea or a bad idea.”
Love and strength to her, and of course I’m sure her fans will support whatever decision she makes. It’s about what’s healthiest for her.
