AceShowbiz - Earlier this year, Britney Spears announced that she would postpone her Las Vegas residency to take care of her father Jamie, who was said to be in a life-threatening health crisis. But it looks like there are more underlying issues behind the decision than previously thought.
According to The Blast, the reason was just a "smokescreen to distract people" from the alleged downward spiral that the singer was experiencing. A source who claimed to be close to her team revealed to the site that she was in "no condition" to take on a rigorous schedule of rehearsals and performances. "She just could not do it," so the source said, adding that her mental state was "horribly messed up."
Furthermore, Page Six reported that low ticket sales were also a reason the "Domination" show was delayed. "A lot of people rely on Britney, so they wanted to milk every cent from this deal," a source said. "Ticket sales were very soft. The tickets were priced so high."
Reps for the "...Baby One More Time" singer have yet to comment on the report, but a source close to Britney had denied all of them.
Britney announced the postponement of her "Domination" show in January, explaining that "it's important to always put your family first... and that's the decision I had to make." She added, "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 decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time."
Britney is currently receiving treatment in a rehab facility in Los Angeles. She was recently spotted spending quality time with boyfriend Sam Asghari while taking a break from her rehab.
