Britney Spears Cancels Shows Due To Injury From Onstage Fall

(Radio.com) Britney Spears' recent tumble while performing live in Las Vegas was initially reported to have not seriously hurt the pop singer, but it turns out Spears is being forced to cancel a couple of her upcoming performances because of it.

In a press release, a representative said, "Britney injured her ankle during her performance Wednesday evening and her doctor has advised her not to perform Friday and Saturday evening so that she may heal." Those two shows, May 1 and May 2, are to be rescheduled, with ticket holders being offered either refunds or exchanges.

Spears acknowledged the fall with a thankful tweet to all her supporters, saying "Thank you for all of the sweet wishes! Had a little scare on stage tonight with my ankle but I'm ok!"

As of now, all other future performances at Caesars Palace are scheduled to go on as planned. Spears is reportedly banking 15 million dollars a year with the residency. Read more here.
