is reuniting with business
manager Larry Rudolph, E! News
Spears and Rudolph worked together for many years off-and-on, and he is
credited with shaping her highly successful early career. They most recently
parted ways last year after Spears blamed him, in part, for encouraging her
to enter Promises rehab center in Malibu.
Of reports that they have decided to pair up again, a source tells E!: "It's
true. They are working together."
At the time when Spears parted ways with Rudolph last year, her father, Jamie, sent an
email to the New York Post
supporting Rudolph despite his
daughter's decision to sever their relationship.
"When Larry Rudolph talked Britney into going into rehab, he was doing what her mother, father and team
of professionals with over 100 years of experience knew needed to be done," Jamie wrote. "She was out of control. Larry was the one chosen by the team to roll up his sleeves and deliver the message, to help save her life."
Jamie Spears is currently a co-conservator over his daughter's affairs.
