Britney Spears’ Father Jamie Got His Leg Amputated
Britney Spears’ dad, Jamie Spears, had his leg amputated a month ago, gossip website TMZ reports. Her former conservator suffered from a massive infection in one of his legs, which landed him in a hospital for weeks. Sources tell the gossip site that after five unsuccessful surgeries, doctors decided the only way to proceed was to amputate his leg. 71-year-old Jamie is apparently not doing well and has other ailments. Per TMZ, this is due to his health, along with the stress from criticism of how he handled his daughter’s 13-year-long conservatorship.
However, the “Till The World Ends” singer might reconcile with her father. Sources told the gossip site that there have been times when Britney said she misses her dad and once even talked about sending him money to help him out. As for Jamie, sources say there’s nothing he’d rather have than a reconciliation with his daughter, and harbors no ill will.
While celebrating her 42nd birthday over the weekend, Britney seemed to mend her relationship with her mother Lynne as well. She invited her mom to Los Angeles over the weekend, and apparently they were getting along great. They have been talking regularly on the phone for weeks and starting over. As for her younger sister, Jamie Lynn, Spears extended the invite to her as well. The Zoey 101 alum wasn’t around to make it, but the sisters are reportedly communicating as well. Older brother Bryan Spears was also in attendance for Britney’s birthday party over the weekend. She posted a photo of him wearing construction gear on Instagram a few days prior. In the caption, Britney called him “my big brother who’s like a dad and my best friend !!” It appears Britney is missing her family following the release of her memoir, The Woman In Me. Reconciling with her father would be the last family member she’d mend the relationship with.
