Just hours after Britney Spears announced that she would be touring with Enrique Iglesias on ‘Good Morning America,’ he bailed on her. While her concert series was airing on tv, Enrique was in full bitch panic mode and backing out of the tour. (Click HERE to see Britney’s GMA Performance…)
Despite weeks of attorneys and agents ironing out details and making sure both Spears and Iglesias were happy with the arrangements, the ‘I Like It’ singer decided he didn’t want to be Brit’s opening act. Sources told TMZ that it is all his ego and he doesn’t want to be second fiddle.
“Enrique was burning up the phone lines and the Internet, engaging various people connected with the tour in lengthy conversations in which he made it clear — he was, in reality, Britney’s opening act and he wanted out. One source says the deal was actually very favorable to Enrique … “great terms and great placement.” But we’re told it all came down to taking the stage before Brit — too much to handle.”
Other “sources” say it’s a money issue. Billboard is told that it’s a problem of whether Iglesias would receive a percentage of the “back end” profit or box office receipts in addition to a per-show payment. Either way, Britney would earn several times more than whatever Enrique made.
