He was first introduced to a 13-year-old Spears in 1995 and secured her first record deal with Jive Records two years later.
Britney Spears’ long-time manager Larry Rudolph who guided and shaped her career for over 25 years has resigned amid reports she has retired from music. The BBC is reporting that Rudolph sent a letter to Spears’ co-conservators Jamie Spears and the court-appointed Jodi Montgomery, Rudolph writes that “It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus. Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.”
He adds, “I believe it is in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed.”
Deadline was first to report the news of Rudolph’s resignation as Spears’ manager. The news of Rudolph’s resignation is the latest dramatic development in Spears’ attempts to end her conservatorship, which for 13 years has seen her conservators, who include her father, Jamie Spears, controlling many important aspects of her life including her finances, her relationships with other people and personal decisions about her health. In a now-infamous June 23rd court hearing, Spears told the judge overseeing the arrangement of her conservatorship that Jamie Spears and others including Rudolph, although he was not directly named, “should be in jail.”
