Rob Light, managing partner at Creative Artists Agency, confirms that the agency has signed Britney Spears, with Light and Jeffrey Azoff as responsible agents. Spears' last tour in 2011 grossed $37 million and drew just under 400,000 to 39 shows, according to Billboard Boxscore.
The agency will represent Spears worldwide and in all areas.
One of the most successful singers to come out of the late 90s pop explosion, Spears was most recently a judge and mentor on the U.S. version of "The X Factor," although on Friday she confirmed that she'll be leaving the show after one season.
Spears is currently working on a new album, her eighth since 1999's "...Baby One More Time," with such collaborators as will.i.am and Ester Dean. Her most recent album, 2011's Femme Fatale, was certified platinum, marking sales of over 1 million units.
Spears was previously repped by WME. She is managed by Larry Rudolph and Adam Leber.
