CONFIRMED: Enrique & Britney Are Not Touring Together

Britney Spears’s recent announcement on Good Morning America that she’ll be touring with Enrique Iglesias this summer isn't true, a rep for Enrique tells Latina.com. “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 caused to anyone," said the rep.
Multiple sources tell TMZ that Enrique dropped out of the tour because his ego couldn’t handle being Spears’ opening act. Reportedly, lawyers and agents for both artists spent weeks drawing up an agreement that called for Enrique to appear as a co-headliner. At first both sides agreed to the deal, which led to an announcement being made Tuesday, but just hours before Britney's camp went public, Enrique said he wasn't comfortable being Britney's opening act and said he wanted out.
