"It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus," he wrote.
"Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.
"As you know, I have never been a part of the conservatorship nor its operations, so I am not privy to many of these details.
"I was originally hired at Britney’s request to help manage and assist her with her career.
"And as her manager, I believe it is in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed."
He concluded by wishing Spears "all the health and happiness in the world".
The move comes after a judge denied the Toxic singer's request to remove her father from his role overseeing her conservatorship.
Spears spoke out against the conservatorship last month, claiming she has been treated like a slave.
