Britney Spears’ pop comeback has been dealt a blow – Enrique Iglesias has reportedly pulled out of plans to tour with the Toxic star just hours after she announced the big news.
In a taped TV segment for breakfast show Good Morning America on Tuesday, the superstar revealed she would be hitting the road with Iglesias this summer.

She told the crowd, “Thank you guys for all your love and support. I love music. It’s my world. It’s my everything, so I’m so happy to be able to share it with everyone… We are going on tour with Enrique Iglesias in June!”

The first of 26 concerts are due to kick off in Sacramento, California on 17 June – but it appears Spears will have to find another big name touring partner amid claims the Spanish singer has dropped out of the deal.

A spokesperson for gig promoters Live Nation has declined to comment. An official statement regarding the North American tour is expected to be released soon, according to Billboard.com.

The upcoming gigs, in support of Spears’ new album Femme Fatale, will be her first full live shows since her 2009 The Circus tour, which raked in a massive $131.8 million in global ticket sales.
