Britney Spears' manager says singer may never perform again

Britney Spears' longtime manager Larry Rudolph has said the singer may never perform again.

Rudolf, whose association with the singer goes back as far as her debut album "Baby... One More Time", in 1999, said he wants her to find a "peaceful, happy" place.

"I've been with her for two-thirds of her life. I look at her almost like I look at my own daughter. It's very emotional for me... and really rough. Personally, I want for her to just find a peaceful, happy place whatever that means for her. It's not about a career anymore it's about life," he told 'Variety'.

Spears, who recently postponed her Las Vegas residency in the wake of her father's Jamie Spears' recent treatment for a ruptured colon, is scheduled to undergo psychological evaluation.

She reportedly told a judge that her father forced her to enter a mental health facility and take medication against her will.

The 37-year-old singer had checked herself into a 30-day programme in March in the midst of her father's ongoing health issues.

Rudolf said the decision not to go ahead with the Vegas residency stemmed from the fact that she is "taking time to regroup and get her head together".
