Britney Spears puts family first before career

Britney Spears has decided to put her career “on hold” to take care of her father, who reportedly “almost died” after suffering a ruptured colon.

“Everything is on hold right now until Jamie is better,” Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph, said in a recent statement sent to Variety.

That includes Britney’s upcoming album on which she had been working with producer Justin Tranter.

“But once he is [better], she will resume working on the album with Justin. Right now, she’s taking some time off to deal with these family issues,” Larry added.

The pop star was forced to postpone her second Las Vegas residency “Britney: Domination,” which was supposed to begin its run in February at the Park MGM Resort.

In a series of tweets, she said that although the recent turn of events  “breaks her heart,” it’s always “important to put your family first.”

“That’s the decision I had to make. 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,” she related. “I had to make the difficult decision to put my focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all understand.” —ALLAN POLICARPIO
