“Unfortunately, Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears will not be touring together,” it says. “Despite initial reports, Enrique will continue his solo tour in support of his new album. Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan. He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused.”
