    The pop star is making headlines with family drama again as she has cancelled her new show in Las Vegas, taking some time off to recover after her father was hospitalised and almost died. She made the sad announcement online triggering a wave of sympathy with compassionate messages from her fans under the hashtag #WeLoveYouBritney.

    The hashtag #WeLoveYouBritney made it to the trending list on Twitter after Britney Spears announced she would not be performing in Las Vegas with her show Britney: Domination. The singer, who started tearing up the charts with her "…Baby One More Time" some 20 years ago, broke the announcement on her social media, saying she needs to put her family first after it was shaken with her father’s life-threatening illness.

    “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”, the statement on her Facebook page reads.

    She thanked her fans for their prayers and support for her family during this time.

    ​The pop star’s representatives, as cited by NBC news, revealed her father Jamie Spears had survived a ruptured colon and had to spend a month in the hospital in Las Vegas.

    "After a long, complicated post-operative period, he is recuperating at home and gaining strength, and is expected to make a full recovery”, they said.
