Britney Spears‘ father will undergo surgery next week to hopefully repair his ruptured colon for good.
Jamie Spears’ colon spontaneously ruptured last November and he was left hospitalized for nearly a month after undergoing surgery. When Britney revealed the news, she said her father “almost died” as a result of the ailment.
According to our sources, Spears will undergo a second surgery next week. We’re told the doctors still are unsure what caused Spears’ colon to rupture but he has now healed enough that they can go in and finish the job.
Our sources say Jamie is feeling better after initially being “very sick” following the rupture. We’re told this second surgery will have a longer recovery time than the first.
But Spears will have his talented daughter by his side as he recovers — we’re told Britney Spears has been by her father’s side throughout this entire process and will continue to be there through this second surgery.
Spears postponed her Las Vegas residency to tend to her father.
“I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say,” Spears wrote. “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.”
As The Blast first reported, Jamie Spears is set to become Britney Spears’ sole conservator after co-conservator Andrew Wallet filed documents on Monday to begin the process of stepping down.
Wallet said sin the docs, “The conservatorship is engaged in numerous ongoing business activities requiring immediate attention and it therefore is in the best interest of the conservatee that the acceptance of Wallet’s resignation and the issuance of amended letters of conservatorship of the estate occur immediately and without delay.”
He added, “Substantial detriment, irreparable harm and immediate danger will result to the conservatee and her estate if the relief requested herein in not granted on an ex parte basis.”
