In early January, Grammy Award-winner Spears, 37, put the show on hold in order to be with her father, Jamie Spears, who she said had been hospitalised and had nearly died.

American Singer Britney Jean Spears is not going back to Las Vegas for another residency and may not be able to perform again in the near future says her manager Larry Rudolph. At the time, she tweeted, "I don't even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. And, if she ever does want to work again, I'm here to tell her if it's a good idea or a bad idea". However, her manager contends that Britney was the one who wanted to keep working. Kevin won't allow the boys to spend more time with their mother until Britney is once again stable and therapeutic on medication.

Lynne Spears has been living with Britney and wants to have a greater role in her daughter's conservatorship. He said, "She clearly doesn't want to perform now". An unnamed source said Spears had "received treatment, seen a psychiatrist and other doctors" over the last decade but the medication she had been taking for her mental wellness had lost efficacy. Spears is still under contract to RCA Records and Rudolph speculated that she may continue recording in the future and that she'll come back to it when she is ready.

In January, she said she was postponing her Domination residency, which was slated to start February 13.

Spears shared updates about her well-being on social media over the past several weeks after fans asked about her mental health. I look at her nearly like I look at my own daughter. "It's not about a career anymore - it's about life". The part that concerns me is that it has no factual basis.

Rudolph also spoke to Variety about the "Free Britney" movement, which saw fans suggest the star was being imprisoned against her will. While everyone warned her to take it slow and give herself time in the facility, Spears missed her routine and just being in her own bed. However, he is only given limited medical information that directly impacts her career. "There's a slow-moving project she's been dabbling in and out of that's the beginning of something". "We're all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him". "At 37 years old, she's worked more than most people who hit retirement age".
