Since Britney Spears postponed her Las Vegas "Domination" residency last year, fans have been wondering when the iconic pop star will return to the stage —  but an interview with her manager now suggests that time may never come.

The star may be done performing for good after a "perfect storm" of her father falling in and her meds stopping working, according to her manager Larry Rudolph.

Rudolph, who has managed Spears for over 15 years, offered TMZ insight into the 37-year-old singer's current mental and physical state and according to him, it may be a long time – if ever — before Spears returns to the stage.

"As the person who guides her career — based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis — from what I have gathered it's clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency, not in the near future and possibly never again," he said.

"Domination" was supposed to kick off on Feb. 13 but rehearsals were put on hold when Spears' father fell ill late last year. Rudolph said it was "the perfect storm," which set the "Toxic" singer into a downward spiral.

"We had to pull her show because her meds stopped working and she was distraught over her dad's illness," he told TMZ, adding that she was initially excited about the residency but he has not heard from her in months. "She clearly doesn't want to perform now."

Shortly after her father Jamie Spears fell very ill, Spears announced an indefinite break and later checked herself into a wellness treatment facility, People noted. An unnamed source said Spears had "received treatment, seen a psychiatrist and other doctors" over the last decade but the medication she had been taking for her mental wellness had lost efficacy.

While dealing with her father's medical issues, Spears still had to cope with adjusting to new medication, which was physically and emotionally challenging.

Since 2008 Spears has been under a court-ordered conservatorship which does not allow her to make major financial or personal decisions without the approval of her father. The conservatorship was put in place after the star had a much-publicized meltdown.

Rudolph said he does not want her to work until she was ready "physically, mentally and passionately," according to TMZ.

"If that time never comes again it will never come again. I have no desire or ability to make her work again. I am only here for her when she wants to work. And, if she ever does want to work again, I'm here to tell her if it's a good idea or a bad idea."
