Claus Hjelmbak, the event organizer, a friend of Spears's, told E! in December that Spears would no longer be hosting next week's fashion and style gala due to her medical problems.
"As a friend, my primary concern is for Britney's well-being and giving her the love and support she needs," he said at the time.
Spears rang in her 26th at the Scandinavian Style Mansion's soiree in December, partying alongside Paris Hilton.
