I was reading though a People.com article about Larry Rudolph's (Britney's manager) interview with USA Today where he talks about Britney's comeback scheduled for later this year. This caught my eye:
Rudolph termed Spears's filing for divorce from Kevin Federline on Nov. 7 "a sign to fans that she's serious" about a professional comeback.
From the beginning I have speculated that a major reason that Britney divorced Kevin was because she felt it would be better for her career. This confirms, at the very least, that Larry feels that way, and it's not really a surprise considering the filing of divorce was handled more like a publicity stunt than the breakup of a marriage. I have to say that the whole situation literally turns my stomach. Again, I think of Sean Preston and Jayden James reading this, in addition to every thing else since Britney filed for divorce. Is there any other conclusion they can come to but that their mother chose the best interests of her career over the best interests of her family. It's sad that the media were so ruthless when it came to Kevin and Britney's marriage, and that it influenced so many people. It's sad that so many Britney fans were unable to respect her decision of who she chose to marry. It's sad that Britney felt she had to choose between her marriage and her career. It's sad that Larry was so willing to step in, and blatantly connect her divorce to her career comeback.
It's a sad, sad situation.
