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".

"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," he added.

Last month, fans protested Spears' release from a psychiatric facility with "Free Britney" banners, with attendees shouting, "Hey, ho, has got to go," claiming it was her manager's decision to put the star in the facility.
