We feel for her. Britney Spears is having a rough time in regard to all the health concerns her father, Jamie Spears, is facing, an insider told Radar Online. “She is back and forth to Louisiana, but she is not doing great by any means,” the source said. “You can see it on her face.” They also added that her dad’s medical complications have “really taken a toll on her.” So sad!
According to the source, the pop star, 37, “is not sleeping well” and is leaning on her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, for support. “Thankfully, he is there for her as much as he can be.” What a rough situation to deal with, especially if you’re far from home like Britney has to be sometimes.
The “Toxic” singer actually decided to cancel her upcoming shows in order to focus on her family. “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,” she shared in a moving Instagram post on Jan. 4.”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.”
Britney added, “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.”
Things don’t seem to be looking good for her father. “Overall, his health is continuing to deteriorate and doctors have told him that he really needs to live on the straight and narrow, meaning that he cannot drink alcohol, or smoke, or do anything unhealthy from this point on,” the insider continued, adding that he is “not mobile like he once was,” spends most of his days in bed, and has a live-in nurse and a chef.
We totally get why all of that would stress Britney out a little bit. We hope her dad makes a full recovery, and soon!
