Larry Rudolph, the man who has guided Britney Spears' career for the last 25 years, is stepping down as her manager. Rudolph's move comes two weeks after Spears' told an L.A. judge that she had been forced to perform against her will.

Rudolph announced his intention to resign in a letter to the star's father, Jamie Spears, and co-conservator, Jodi Montgomery. In the letter, it stated,

"It has been over two-and-a-half years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus," he wrote.

"Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to retire officially. As her manager, I believe it is in Britney's best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed."

Rudolph further noted that

 "never been a part of the conservatorship nor its operations, so I am not privy to many of these details," but said he was "incredibly proud of what we accomplished over our 25 years together".

"I wish Britney all the health and happiness in the world, and I'll be there for her if she ever needs me again, just as I always have been," he concluded.

'Like a daughter.'

Rudolph, who has also represented clients like Miley Cyrus, Aerosmith and Pitbull, announced his resignation amid increased scrutiny of Spears' conservatorship. Britney is currently seeking to end a conservatorship that has governed her life and finances since 2008.
