LOS ANGELES, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- Britney Spears fired her longtime manager on the same day she legalized her nuptials in Los Angeles, it was reported Friday.
The pop diva said Thursday she had parted ways after nine years with Larry Rudolph, the man who turned the 22-year-old into an international star with record sales of 60 million, Hellomagazine.com said.
"We had a great run and I appreciate all of Larry's guidance over the years. I wish him all the best," Spears said in a statement.
Rudolph released a statement saying he and his client "mutually agreed" not renew the management contract.
Spears also filed the proper paperwork for her marriage to Kevin Federline, a technicality overlooked when the pop singer hastily planned her surprise wedding last month.
It's all legal," Spears' spokeswoman said of the union.
