Spears has been troubled over the past year by her father, Jamie Spear’s health crisis. Jamie Spears recently underwent a second surgery to fix a ruptured colon and isn’t getting better. 

The pop star put her Las Vegas residency on hold for the same reason a few months ago. 

She wrote on Instagram: “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.”

Britney herself addressed her fans on Instagram on April 3, for the first time since January. She captioned the post, “We all need to take time for a little me-time. :)”
