Las Vegas — Britney Spears is putting her planned Las Vegas residency on hold to focus on her father's recovery from a life-threatening illness.

The pop superstar announced on Friday she is going on an indefinite work hiatus after announcing in October 2018 that she would be returning to Vegas.

Her residency was scheduled to kick off in February at Park Theatre at the Park MGM casino-resort.

In a lengthy statement on social media, Britney announced that it was a difficult decision but that she is dedicating her "focus and energy" to her family.

The statement further reveals her father, Jamie Spears, has had a complicated recovery after becoming ill two months ago, undergoing emergency surgery and spending several days at a hospital.

Refunds for Britney Domination shows are available on her official website.

Bill Hornbuckle, president of casino operator MGM Resorts International, says the company respects Spears' commitment to her family.
