"I will not be performing my new show Domination," she wrote in an emotional post on Twitter which featured a picture of herself as a young child alongside her parents.


The 1990s and 2000s icon had been due to kick off a series of concerts at the MGM resort in Las Vegas in February as part of a new residency in the city.

Reports indicated Spears' father Jamie suffered a colon rupture but is expected to make a full recovery.


Spears had previously held a Las Vegas residency between 2013 and 2017.
