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. 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. 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. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com. I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.

Bill Hornbuckle, president of MGM Resorts International, released a statement assuring that the resort’s staff is understanding of the singer’s decision.

The statement said:

All of us at MGM Resorts wish Mr. Spears a speedy recovery. We wholly understand and respect Britney’s commitment to her family and believe that her place is with them during this important time.

This news comes after Us Weekly reported in March that Jamie was consulting with his daughter’s medical team in hopes of ending her conservatorship.

As Us Weekly reports, Britney was placed under the guidance of the conservatorship in 2008, after she was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation following her public breakdown.

Under the conservatorship, Britney is unable to make personal or financial decisions without her father and lawyer Andrew Wallet’s approval.

It is unclear on whether or not the conservatorship is still in place.

As of now, fans are commenting on the singer’s recent post sending their well-wishes and prayers during this challenging time for the Spears family.
