“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.”
Spears continued by explaining that her father was hospitalised and almost died just months ago.
‘I hope you all understand’
“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 understand,” she said, before advising fans who had booked tickets to the show to visit her official website for information about refunds.
