LOS ANGELES — Britney Spears said on Friday she was pulling out of her upcoming Las Vegas concerts and other work commitments to be with her family after her father was taken ill.
Spears, 37, said in an Instagram posting that her father Jamie was hospitalized late last year and “almost died.”
Spears was due to start a new series of concerts, called “Britney: Domination,” in Las Vegas on Feb. 13 and perform there until August 2019.
Jamie Spears is credited with reviving the career of his teen sensation daughter after her life spiraled out of control in 2007-2008. He also became the court-approved conservator of her business affairs.
