Enrique's Ego Couldn't Handle Britney

Britney Spears and Enrique Iglesias co-headlining a massive tour sounded awesome. That is, until Enrique realized he was just the opening act.

Enrique pulled out of Britney's summer tour just hours after she publicly announced it to the world. So what went wrong?

Enrique is already on a solo tour and when he found out he was just Britney's opening act, he wanted out ASAP.

"Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work," his rep says. "He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone."

Long story short, he's now continuing on his own for his new album Euphoria. Apparently the initial deal was actually very favorable to Enrique. A source told TMZ he was getting "great terms and great placement." But it all came down to taking the stage before Brit, which was too much to handle.

Are you still planning on seeing Brit? Even if nosebleed section seats start at $96? I'd rather spend that money on Enrique and know he's actually singing.
