Brit­ney Spears has de­cided to put her ca­reer “on hold” to take care of her fa­ther, who re­port­edly “al­most died” after suf­fer­ing a rup­tured colon.

“Ev­ery­thing is on hold right now un­til Jamie is bet­ter,” Brit­ney’s man­ager, Larry Ru­dolph, said in a re­cent state­ment sent to Va­ri­ety.

That in­cludes Brit­ney’s up­com­ing al­bum on which she had been work­ing with pro­ducer Justin Tran­ter.

“But once he is [bet­ter], she will re­sume work­ing on the al­bum with Justin. Right now, she’s tak­ing some time off to deal with these fam­ily is­sues,” Larry added.

The pop star was forced to post­pone her sec­ond Las Ve- gas res­i­dency “Brit­ney: Dom­i­na­tion,” which was sup­posed to be­gin its run in Fe­bru­ary at the Park MGM Re­sort.

In a se­ries of tweets, she said that although the re­cent turn of events “breaks her heart,” it’s al­ways “im­por­tant to put your fam­ily first.”

“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,” she re­lated. “I had to make the dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to put my fo­cus and en­ergy on my fam­ily at this time. I hope you all un­der­stand.”
