“The people who did this to me should not get away,” Spears said to the judge, adding, “Ma’am, my dad, and anyone involved in this conservatorship, and my management, who played a huge role in punishing me when I said no — Ma’am, they should be in jail.” Rudolph was first introduced to Britney Spears, then 13, in 1995 and secured her first record deal with Jive Records two years later. At times the former entertainment lawyer worked as both Spears’ manager and legal representative in notable deals such as her fragrance deal which would go on to make hundreds of millions in sales.
Spears left Rudolph’s Reign Deer Entertainment in 2004 but returned in 2007 at the behest of her father Jamie according to a New Yorker report. Through Reign Deer, Rudolph has also managed Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Avril Lavigne, Backstreet Boys, Toni Braxton, will.i.am, Nicole Scherzinger and the late DMX.
