Enrique Iglesias Cancels Tour With Britney Spears

UPDATE 5:21 PT: Enrique just released this statement, confirming he WON’T be touring with Britney.

“Unfortunately, Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears will not be touring together,” his rep said. “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.”

The Britney Spears and Enrique Iglesias tour is over even before it began, after the hunky star pulled out just hours after they announced the joint venture, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The tour was made public on Tuesday, moments before Spears shook her stuff for a much talked about performance on Good Morning America.

But it appears that the Spanish hunk no longer wants to pair up with the pop princess and has since cancelled.

Live Nation is promoting the show and sent out a media advisory stating: “Enrique Iglesias is no longer on this tour.”

No further explanation was given, but Billboard is reporting that he ducked out because he doesn’t want to be an opening act for anyone.

“Plans called for Iglesias, who is currently on tour in Europe, to be much more than a standard opening act; he was slated to carry full production on the Spears tour,” Billboard reported. “While two such high-profile artists with top-shelf production values was sure to be attractive to fans, such an endeavor is also very expensive to produce.”
