Larry Rudolph now explains how Britney has ‘not called in months,’ making him think that she may never ‘want’ to go back to performing.
Yesterday, his suggestion that she may retire from the stage caused quite a frenzy among her fans, five months after the 37-year-old cancelled her 2019 Las Vegas residency and announced an ‘indefinite’ hiatus.
But now he has backtracked, by saying: ‘People seem to be picking up my quotes to TMZ as implying that Britney will never work again. That’s not what I said.

Speaking to Billboard on Wednesday, Rudolph insisted that he had just one role in Britney‘s life and that was to serve her as a manager.
He said: ‘She calls me if and when she wants to work. Other than that I’m not involved in anything else. Not the conservatorship, not her medical treatment, not her kids. Nothing else.’
Earlier that day, Larry stated that he had no desire to make Britney work and would not let her until she was ‘ready physically, mentally and passionately’.

Larry took over from Britney’s former manager Sam Lutfi (Picture: WENN)He told 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 added: ‘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.’
Britney and Larry have worked together on and off since 1998.
He came on board permanently in 2008, after her relationship broke down with manager Sam Lutfi, from whom she was granted a restraining order last week.
In the midst of his talk with TMZ on Wednesday, Larry let slip that Britney’s Domination residency was cancelled earlier this year because her medication had ‘stopped working’.
