Britney Spears Has Signed a US $15 Million Publishing Deal for a Tell-All Memoir


Britney Spears has signed a US $15 million book deal for a memoir encapsulating her journey and life during her 13-year conservatorship under her father, Jamie Spears.

Following publishing deals signed by the Presidential Obamas, this deal with Simon & Schuster is a record-breaking one. The pop star, now 40 years old and engaged to Iranian fitness trainer Sam Asghari, is set to tackle all of the events of her life up to the present moment that have shaped her into the free, outspoken woman she is today. After more than a decade-long fight under a conservatorship that ended in November 2021, Spears is finally enjoying the results of the #FreeBritney movement, and has already started speaking out about her abuse and trauma. The singer has gone on record to say that in her opinion, her family members “should be put in jail” for the unfair and degrading treatment they put her through.

The biography-style book will also counter Britney’s younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears’s allegations in her own book, titled Things I Should’ve Said. However, Jamie Lynn has denied making any allegations towards the music icon, despite having recounted a memory on Good Morning America in which she claimed that Britney Spears once locked both of them in a bathroom with a knife, and described her behavior as “erratic” and “paranoid”.

Standing strong, the ‘Baby One More Time’ singer has been invited by the US Congress to work on the issue of conservatorship and provide more insight into the topic. The collaboration and act are sought to grant more options to people under the harsh reality of conservatorships. This memoir will certainly shine more light on the legal battle that Spears faced for much too long.
