'...I have never been a part of the conservatorship...'

He continued, 'As you know, I have never been a part of the conservatorship nor its operations, so I am not privy to many of these details.'

'I was originally hired at Britney’s request to help manage and assist her with her career.'

'And 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.'

He had been Spears' manager since the mid-90s when she shot to fame, becoming one of the world's biggest pop stars.

The singer continued to perform under the conservatorship and even had a residency in Las Vegas.

However, the last time she stepped out on stage was 2018 and she reportedly has no plans to return to music while her father is in control of her affairs.

The court hearing

Rudolph's resignation comes shortly after Britney appeared in an L.A. court and pleaded with the judge to end her father's conservatorship.

Her dad, Jamie, has been in control of her affairs since 2008 after a series of public breakdowns.

Now, 13 years on, Britney, "just [wants her] life back."

Britney said, "My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management - they should be in jail."

"It's not ok to force me to do anything I don’t want to."

"The conservatorship should end. I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive."
