Britney Spears’ estranged dad, Jamie, has leg amputated after ‘terrible infection’

Britney Spears’ estranged father, Jamie Spears, had his leg amputated last month, a source in the pop star’s hometown of Kentwood, La., tells Page Six.

“He had a knee replacement and got a terrible infection from it,” our insider shares.

We hear Jamie underwent multiple unsuccessful surgeries prior to the amputation, which was “a last resort.”

His lawyer had no comment.

The news comes two months after Page Six exclusively reported that the 71-year-old was “seriously ill” and had been in and out of hospitals, including a facility for infectious disease patients.

Sources said at the time that Jamie had “lost more than 25 pounds” while dealing with his health issues, which stemmed from a knee replacement in the mid-2000s.

Multiple insiders told Page Six in August that, contrary to reports, Britney, 42, was not considering reaching out to her dad to repair their scarred relationship before it was too late.

“Britney is on a healing journey, but a reconciliation with Jamie is not in the cards,” one source told us.

The “Toxic” singer became estranged from the Spears family patriarch while fighting to end the conservatorship he had placed her under in 2008.

After Britney described her father as “abusive” in open court in 2021, a Los Angeles judge suspended Jamie as conservator before terminating the guardianship altogether.

The Grammy winner detailed Jamie’s 13-year control over her personal and financial decisions in her recently released memoir, “The Woman in Me.”

Jamie was Britney’s conservator from 2008 to 2021.

“I started to feel like I was in a cult and my father was the cult leader,” she wrote.

Britney also claimed her dad, an alcoholic, had forced her to go to rehab multiple times and used her success to help his “cash flow.”

Jamie, who previously denied any wrongdoing, has not publicly addressed the bestselling book.

Britney had also been on the outs with her mother, Lynne Spears, during her conservatorship battle, but they reconciled earlier this year.

Lynne, 68, was photographed attending her daughter’s 42nd birthday party last Friday.

TMZ was first to report the news of Jamie’s amputation.
