Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias has apologised for pulling out of plans to tour with Britney Spears just hours after the pop star announced their joint trek on TV.
Spears appeared on Good Morning America on Tuesday to promote her new album, Femme Fatale, and she revealed she would be hitting the road with Iglesias in June.

But subsequent reports suggested the Hero hitmaker had dropped out of the deal and a statement released through Iglesias’ spokeswoman has now confirmed plans for a joint tour will not be going ahead.

The statement reads, “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 have caused to anyone.”
