Britney Spears is putting her highly anticipated Las Vegas residency on hold because her father is facing a serious illness.
The Princess of Pop announced Friday she is going on an indefinite work hiatus.
“I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show ‘Domination.’ I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart,” Spears posted on Twitter.
Her residency was scheduled to kick off in February at Park Theater at the Park MGM casino-resort, The Associated Press reports.
Her father, Jamie Spears, has had a complicated recovery after becoming ill two months ago, according to the AP.
According to a press release obtained by CNN, Spears’ father was hospitalized due to his colon “spontaneously” rupturing. He reportedly spent 28 days at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas and is recovering at home.
“However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him,” the Grammy-award winner tweeted Friday.
Information regarding ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com.
I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.
