LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The release of a new Britney Spears album has reportedly been delayed, joining her on-hold Las Vegas residency.
Variety reports the release of Spears' album for RCA Records has been placed on hold while the singer spends time with her father, Jamie, who suffered a ruptured colon.
Manager Larry Rudolph told Variety that Spears will resume working on the album once Jamie Spears' health improves.

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.
Spears announced last week she had to put her new Las Vegas show, "Britney: Domination," on indefinite hiatus because of her father's health issues.
"Domination" was scheduled to begin in February at Park MGM. It would have been Spears' second show in Las Vegas after her residency at Planet Hollywood concluded in 2017.
