Britney Spears has captivated music fans and celebrity gossip addicts alike for years. Spears’ extended conservatorship was full of unexpected events that prevented her from achieving any type of fair independence. Thanks to a large new book deal, Britney Spears will finally be able to tell her story on her own terms.
The pop star, 40, signed a $15 million deal with Simon & Schuster after a bidding war involving multiple publishing companies, according to Page Six. An insider said at the time, “The deal is one of the biggest of all time, behind the Obamas,” referring to the $60 million that Barack and Michelle Obama received from Penguin Random House for their books.
Despite the fact that the announcement was made just one month after Spears’ sister, Jamie Lynn Spears released her memoir, “Things I Should Have Said,” the first source asserts that the timing is entirely coincidental. “Britney has always wanted to write a book and feels now is the best time to do it so that she can move on and be at peace again.”
This tell-all book is Britney’s first official project since her conservatorship ended in November 2021, roughly 14 years after her father, Jamie Spears, gained control of her life and finances. Last summer, the Grammy winner spoke twice against her father, alleging that he used his influence to force her into a mental institution against her will as punishment for the cancellation of her second Las Vegas residency, “Britney: Domination.”
Jamie denied any misconduct, but admitted in June 2019 in court saying his relationship with Britney “has always been strained.” However, according to a source who informed Page Six, the “Toxic” singer “has big plans for 2022 as a thank-you to her beloved fans who gave her the courage to speak out against her situation and helped her get her life back.”
