Britney Spears is putting her family first.
In an announcement on her Instagram page, Britney Spears shared that she would not be performing in her upcoming Las Vegas residency as she steps away from work due to her father’s health.
“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,” she said in her post. “I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make.”
She went on to share that her father had recently endured a major health scare that almost took his life.
“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. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand.”
She closed by thanking fans for their love and support.
“I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.”
