Britney Spears Might 'Never Again' Perform Live, Her Manager Says

Since Britney Spears postponed her Las Vegas "Domination" residency a year ago, fans have been wondering when the iconic pop star will return to the stage - but an interview with her manager now suggests that time may never come.

"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". "Lynne wants to be more involved in Britney's care because she is her mom", a Spears family source told PEOPLE last week. She wants to spend every moment she can with them and can't wait for their summer break to begin.

"Kevin commends Britney for recognising that she needs to take a step back and that she's taking the reasonable steps to deal with her situation in a responsible way", Kevin's attorney said at the time. However, if it was up to him, he wouldn't want her to work again until she's "physically, mentally and passionately" prepared - even if that time never comes. "I am only here for her when she wants to work", Rudolph continued.

She argued that under the rules of the conservatorship, Jamie does not have the power to either commit her against her will or make her take prescription pills.

"Other media sources seem to be picking up my quotes to TMZ as implying that Britney will never work again".

"She's putting herself ahead of everyone else, and I'm proud of her for that". Her residency was supposed to kick off February 13. However, her manager contends that Britney was the one who wanted to keep working. "She calls me if and when she wants to work".

The Blast was able to look at court documents in the case and reported that under scrutiny will be all financial transactions, Britney's medical history including decisions made on her behalf, and her personal life.

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

"[Britney] is the one whose focus is on on [getting better]".

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

On Friday, Britney left the court barefoot and is understood to have asked for more freedoms under the conservatorship, but the request was not granted during the closed hearing. At the same time, Rudolph says he's happy that Spears "is not thinking about her business and her career - she's dealing with these issues". I look at her nearly like I look at my own daughter.

Rudolph added of being a part of the hitmaker's life since her "Baby..."

"Let her be a civilian for a while".
