Enrique Iglesias is pulling out of his joint tour with Britney Spears just hours after it was announced this morning, according to a report.
Although Enrique is currently on a solo tour of Europe, the plan was for him to join forces with Britney on her North American tour, not just as an opening act, but as a full partner.
But now Billboard says Iglesias has pulled out of the 26-city tour.
Tour promoter Live Nation has declined to comment.
There is some speculation that two such huge stars would make for a very expensive endeavor. Some also think Iglesias, who is a big draw in his own right, would not want to play second fiddle to Britney Spears.
