Britney Spears, 40, has reached a landmark deal with publishing house Simon & Schuster for her tell-all memoir about her career, her “Toxic” life, and her family. The move comes three months after a judge terminated Britney’s 13-year conservatorship.
Spears’ deal with Simon & Schuster reportedly came about after a bidding war among multiple publishers. The deal was described to Page Six as “one of the biggest of all time, behind the Obamas,” who reportedly signed a $60 million deal with Penguin Random House in 2017.
Britney Spears’ forthcoming book is described in the reports as a “tell-all memoir.” Page Six, which was the first outlet to report the news, quoted publishing insiders as saying the book deal is priced at $15 million and will cover a range of topics, including the facets of both her professional and her personal lives.
Last year, the “Toxic” singer spoke out against her family members, including sister Jamie Lynn, their mom Lynne Spears and their dad Jamie Spears, who largely controlled her conservatorship for most of its duration.
News of the multi-million dollar book deal also comes after the January release of Jamie Lynn’s own memoir Things I Should Have Said, which included details about alleged situations involving Britney and her family’s “complicated dynamics.”
Following the release of her younger sister’s memoir, Britney had a public feud with sister Jamie Lynn and called her “scum” last month, writing, “Congrats best seller…..The nerve of you to sell a book now and talk s–t but your f–king lying…..”
The mom-of-two continued, “I wish you would take a lie detector test so all these masses of people see you’re lying through your teeth about me !!!! I wish the almighty, Lord would could come down and show this whole world that you’re lying and making money off of me !!!!
Jamie Lynn defended her book saying, “I can’t help the family I was born into. I just think we’re all in a situation, and a process that we’re working through.”
She added, “And each of us have the right to work through that however feels best for us.”
