Singer's lucrative Vegas gig on hiatus as father Jamie Spears recovers from health scare. (Newser) – Britney Spears won't be starting her new Vegas gig—expected to be another huge money-maker—in February after all. The singer announced that her "Domination" show is on hiatus so she can be with her father as he recovers from a serious health scare, reports People. Jamie Spears, 66, suffered a ruptured colon and spent nearly a month in the hospital but is now at home and expected to make a full recovery. “I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say,” wrote the 37-year-old singer in a tweet, one that included an old photo of her with her parents. She said that her father almost died and that the decision to postpone the show didn't come easily. “However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make."
