It’s not looking too good for pop icon Britney Spears.
According to her manager, Larry Rudolph, he claims Spears may never perform again. According to Variety, Rudolph added: “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.”
How does her manager know that she may never perform again based on what medical advice? Frankly, I think that she has to decide what is best for her career. It shouldn’t be up to her manager.
I guess it just goes to show that no amount of success can make an unhappy person happy. She’s beautiful, extremely wealthy, has sweet children, a family that supports her, and even a boyfriend she seems to like, but she’s still too emotionally fragile to cope with daily life. I hope she gets the help she needs. The pressures of performing do not seem to be good for her.
The singer is scheduled to undergo psychological evaluation after postponing her Las Vegas residency in the wake of her father’s recent treatment for a ruptured colon. Rudolph says that, though Spears had rehearsed the show (the residency was due to launch on February 13), the Vegas engagement is effectively off, which is what prompted his speaking out in the early hours of May 15.
The decision was made “not to move forward with the Vegas residency,” he explains, adding that the question of what she’s going to do next is not the focus Spears or her family is concerned with right now. “She’s taking time to regroup and get her head together,” says Rudolph. “She’s putting herself ahead of everyone else, and I’m proud of her for that. If she never works again, she never works again. My role is to handle her career when she wants a career. If she comes back strong and full of desire and passion and wants to do it, great. If she takes off six months or six years, it’s totally fine. To me, it’s about her finding her happy place.”
Hope she finds renewed strength and purpose in Jesus Christ! She will then have peace and joy in her life, and a Heavenly Father that will never disappoint.
Has anyone ever said what mental illness she was diagnosed with? With certain mental illnesses, the patient starts to feel normal while taking their medications, but then they believe they don’t need those medications any longer, so they stop taking them. It’s a horrible cycle for both the patient and their family. Unless you’ve dealt with this kind of thing up close and personal, you have no idea what kind of nightmare this is for those closest to her.
According to Forbes and other publications, she’s worth $251 million, which means she doesn’t need to work for another day. That should be enough to support her and her children for the rest of her life and after that.
The stress of a child star who becomes an adult who has massive expectations can cause a multitude of mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse, and so on. If she chooses to walk away, people, please respect that.
