Britney Spears Taking a Break After Dad’s Health Crisis
Britney Spears is hitting pause on her career to care for her father. On Jan. 4—one month before the singer, 37, was set to launch her new
Las Vegas residency “Domination”—spears revealed her dad, Jamie, 66, underwent surgery for a “life-threatening” colon rupture in November. “My father was hospitalized and almost died,” Spears said in a statement announcing her decision to take an “indefinite work hiatus.” With a long road still ahead, Jamie—who has been Spears’s personal and financial conservator since 2008—is also leaning on wife Lynne, son
Bryan, 41, and daughter Jamie Lynn, 27, for support. Said Britney: “We have a very special relationship, and I want to be with my family at this time just like they have always been there for me.”
