Jamie Spears, father of pop icon Britney Spears, fought a dangerous bacterial infection that left him hospitalized. Discovered with the infection, doctors rushed Jamie to an infectious disease facility. After intensive treatment, he now recuperates as an outpatient while regaining strength.
This health scare proved similar to Jamie’s past ordeal. In 2018, his colon suddenly ruptured, requiring emergency surgery and a month-long hospital stay to survive. Britney loyally supported Jamie through his recovery.
When Jamie grew critically sick again, a distraught Britney put her career on hold. “Nearly losing my father overwhelmed me with worry,” she said. Their bond remains tightly knit despite past conflicts in her conservatorship.
During his latest health crisis, Britney stayed by Jamie’s side. Their family has faced struggles but sticks together in difficult times. Britney prepares to share her story in her upcoming memoir releasing this fall.
