On the eve of her new tour, Britney Spears welcomed back an old face into the fold, re-hiring former assistant Felicia Culotta (who was working for The Jonas Brothers). But the move had Britney watchers wondering, what happened to her other assistant and constant companion Brett? Was this a sign of further turmoil in Spears land?
"Nothing is wrong, there is no chaos, Brett just took a vacation," a source confirms to RadarOnline.com exclusively. "The job is too much for one person. Felicia will handle more of the personal stuff and Brett will focus on the business side."
Culotta had parted ways with Spears in 2007. At the time, Culotta sent out an e-mail about the difficult separation saying, "I cannot convince her in ANY way to love herself...I cannot save her from herself." Culotta's ties to the family were so close that she often spent the holidays with them and was viewed as one of Britney's closest advisors and friends.
The Circus tour kicks off on March 3 in New Orleans.
