Britney Spears to Write Tell-All Memoir after $15M Deal with Simon & Schuster
There have been years of controversy and scandal surrounding Britney Spears‘s life and most recently it reached ahead as the fight to be released from her father’s conservatorship ended after a court ruling. Those of you who are interested in going even deeper into the Britney news will be happy to know that Variety is reporting that Spears will be releasing a tell-all memoir after a deal with Simon & Schuster worth $15M.
The terms of the deal were not detailed, but the report states that an “individual familiar with Spears” told the magazine that the deal is “record-breaking in nature”. the publishing house beat out other suitors to get the rights to publish the memoir from the pop star. According to Variety, “The book will provide Spears’ accounts of and commentary on her rise to fame, her music career and her relationship with her family.”
Those following Spears would know that the five-time U.S. No. 1 singer since the 90s previously teased a memoir on her social media account last month. Whether this has been in the works or is a response to the autobiography of her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears remains to be seen. Britney did not have a positive response to her younger sister’s Things I Should Have Said autobiography as was publicly displayed in a now-deleted Instagram post which read:
“Congrats best seller…..The nerve of you to sell a book now and talk s—t but your f—king lying…..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 !!!! You are scum, Jamie Lynn.”
This lead to a cease-and-desist order to Lynn from Britney’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart shortly after the book was published. “Although Britney has not read and does not intend to read your book, she and millions of her fans were shocked to see how you have exploited her for monetary gain. She will not tolerate it, nor should she,” the letter read.
As you can see there is plenty to unpack and the pop star certainly has an entertaining and tragic tale to tell and soon the tell-all will be available to the public everywhere books are sold.
