Larry Rudolph told TMZ that as a person who has been working with Britney Spears for years he relies on the information he personally knows and also the information he is able to get from other members of her staff to conclude that Ms Spears is very unlikely to be back on stage. When Spears’s father and legal guardian Jamie Spears fell ill late last year, the singer cancelled her Las Vegas residency Domination. After cancelling the show Spears checked herself into a mental health facility for a month. She appeared in court earlier this month related to her guardianship and the judge ruled that she required treatment. TMZ reported that during the hearing fans “started to gather outside the courthouse with ‘Free Britney’ posters and chants,” however, the media was banned from the hearing to avoid any speculation that could possibly worsen Ms. Spears’ mental condition. Rudolph said Spears’s father’s illness was the catalyst for her deterioration. “It was the perfect storm. We had to pull her show because her meds stopped working and she was distraught over her dad’s illness,” said the manager. The singer’s manager said he wants it to be Spears’s decision whether or not she works again.
