One and a half years after the dissolvement of her conservatorship, pop culture icon Britney Spears is finally ready to tell her story, in her own words. Her upcoming “brutally honest” autobiography will chronicle her entire life story, including her more sensitive moments, like “her childhood – being a little girl with big dreams – her breakup with Justin Timberlake, the moment she shaved her head, and her battle with her family over her conservatorship,” according to Page Six.
But it wouldn’t be a celebrity tell-all without a bit of drama. According to Page Six, production of the book has been put on hold indefinitely. Some of the more raw stories might paint certain A-list celebrities in an unflattering light, which has caused them to send “strongly worded legal letters” to the book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster.
“Britney is brutally honest in the book — there are a lot of nervous A-listers,” a source told the US Sun reporters. “There’s a fair amount of throwing people under the bus, [as well as] talking about past relationships, some of whom will be revealed for the first time ever.”
We can already think of several individuals who would object to a Britney Spears tell-all. First and foremost, The entire Spears family. Perhaps Justin Timberlake, Kevin Federline, Christina Agulera, P!nk, Colin Ferrel and plenty of other notable names would also be vehemently opposed to a Britney-lead exposé.
However, last week, Britney shared that she has reunited with her mother after three years, and that they have begun to make things right.
“My sweet mama showed up at my door step yesterday after 3 years … it’s been such a long time … with family there’s always things that need to be worked out … but time heals all wounds !!! And after being able to communicate what I’ve held in for an extremely long time, I feel so blessed we were able to try to make things RIGHT !!! I love 💕 you so much !!! Psss… I’m so blessed we can have coffee together after 14 years !!! Let’s go shopping afterwards !!!”
We’ve been following Britney’s journey for years, and look forward to learning the perspective that’s been hidden for years— her own. Maybe this part of her new journey will be the happy ending for the book, and for the singer herself.
“Britney wants this to be her moment to set the record straight,” the source shared.
The original release date was supposed to be this past February, but the legal letters, amongst other delays, have pushed the release date back to the Fall of this year. Regardless of when it will be released, I think it’s safe to say the world is ready to hear Britney’s side of the story.
