AceShowbiz - Britney Spears gyrated in lingerie following news of her dad's widely-reported health horror. The "Toxic" singer, 42, was seen in an Instagram video posted on Tuesday, December 5 dressed in a pink lacy dress dancing to Peggy Lee's 1958 hit "Fever" hours after sources said her dad Jamie Spears, 71, had his leg amputated.
Despite the shock headlines, Britney, who was held under a controversial conservatorship controlled by her dad for 13 years, swayed her hips and whipped her blonde hair while also dressed in burgundy high heels. She captioned the since-deleted post, "Filmed this last night but my dress was too big (four sad face emojis)!!!!"
A source told Page Six about the singer's dad, "He had a knee replacement and got a terrible infection from it." The insider added the amputation, which apparently happened last month, was "a last resort" after several unsuccessful operations.
Jamie is said to have been hospitalized after suffering a "bad infection" stemming from knee replacement surgery in the mid-2000s. At the time, several outlets reported Britney considered reconciling with her dad, but several denied the report.
One source told Page Six, "Britney is on a healing journey, but a reconciliation with Jamie is not in the cards." Britney officially cut ties with the family patriarch after she was freed in 2021 from her conservatorship.
She detailed in her "The Woman in Me" memoir how Jamie saw her as merely being a money machine to help his "cash flow" and accused him of being more cruel than the media by pinpointing her insecurities by "repeatedly" telling her she "looked fat" and "was going to have to do something about it." Britney also alleged he put her on a "strict diet" and allowed her to eat "nothing but chicken and canned vegetables" for two years.
