Enrique Iglesias has finally spoken out publicly over his decision to quit his co-headlining tour with Britney Spears by posting a short message on his official website. In an effort to put the whole sordid mess behind us, I think it’s a great idea that he issued his statement … so we can all just move on. Read what he had to say below.
Hey guys, sorry for the confusion regarding a possible tour in the summer with Britney Spears. We are on the Euphoria tour and will continue to do so including some soon-to-be-announced dates in US. So hope to see all of you soon
This is what his rep had to say officially about his decision to pull out of the tour:
“Unfortunately, Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears will not be touring together. Despite initial reports based on formal discussions of the possible run, Enrique will continue on his solo tour in support of his new album EUPHORIA. Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work. He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone.”
This is what Live Nation, the tour promoter, is saying:
“Enrique Iglesias is no longer on this tour.”
Thus far, Britney Spears nor her camp has had anything official to say. Despite what I may personally believe about what really happened, I truly hope that these statements will put the entire matter to rest. IMHO, the fact that Britney and Enrique are not touring together is in everyone’s best interest and we can just move forward. Enrique can finish his already successful tour and Britney can get to work on finding a new touring partner. I can’t wait to find out who will be sharing the stage with our dear Britney!
