US pop singer Britney Spears tell-all memoir is finally ready.

Last year, Spears had finished writing the bombshell memoir, however, the book release was delayed due to a lack of paper.

In February 2022, the Princess of Pop signed a $15 million book deal with Simon & Schuster, which nabbed the contract following what was said to be a months-long bidding war amongst publishing houses for the rights to Spears’ book.

It is one of the highest in history after Barack and Michelle Obama’s publishing deals. The rights for Barack and Michelle Obama’s books sold in 2017, with the sum surpassing $60 million, the largest ever known figure for nonfiction books.

The pop star's publisher is said to be “thrilled” with the yet-unnamed tome, which is now complete and going through final legal revisions for a planned release ahead of the holidays.

The memoir will be released in the fall – and publishing insiders have described the manuscript as “inspiring” and a “groundbreaking instant best-seller.” 

“Britney’s book is a story of triumph. It will cover her most vulnerable moments, her childhood – being a little girl with big dreams – her break-up with Justin Timberlake, the moment she shaved her head, and her battle with her family over her conservatorship," a source said in a statement.

The insider added, "It is also a story of survival, finding her way out of the crippling conservatorship to finding happiness with her husband Sam Asghari,”.

“Britney’s book is brutally honest and from the heart. No stone is left unturned. Its truly a female empowerment story – her taking control of her life,” the source added.

A second publishing source said, “This book is a gift….There are parts of this book that every person—particularly every woman—can relate to and feel less alone. She transforms joy and pain into something transcendent: art. This is an inspiring read, not only because it shows the strength of Britney’s spirit, but because her story is told with such style, wit, intelligence, honesty, and without any self-pity. She is entirely winning in these pages,".

“This book will….shake the world. I believe that it will also be a groundbreaking instant bestseller.”

In November 2021, Spears was freed from her 13-year conservatorship. The 41-year-old's personal and financial affairs were controlled by her father Jamie Spears as part of the legal arrangement.

Since then, the pop star has been reconnecting with her fans on Instagram, sharing video messages and updates about her life.

Spears was adamant to pen a memoir after she was left fuming over the claims made in her younger sister Jamie Lynn’s book “Things I Should Have Said”.

She slammed her sister on Instagram following the book release, stating: "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.”

The pop star’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart asserted that the music icon will no longer be bullied by her family.

Spears previously opened up on social media about how she wanted this book to show herself as a survivor.

“I’m in love with the life I have built for myself !!! I should be, it’s f**king beautiful … and it’s pretty crazy after all the hard work I’ve done in getting rid of my father’s abuse and controlling me, literally messing with my head after 13 years believe it or not people !!!” she wrote on Instagram.

She continued, “Having this new found independence gives me strength every day and the ability to stay hungry, focused, fearless, and honestly just be a good person.”

Regarding the book, Spears noted, “I don’t have a family that values me or respects me …. AT ALL !!! That’s the hard part for me and as much as I loved them, it’s something that I’ll probably ever won’t be able to get over,". 

"When I post in those moments, I just want to speak from my heart cause it’s extremely hard for me and then I look back and I see how many people say get over it … I’m working on becoming stronger 💪🏻 !!! Psss I’ve written 3 different versions of my book and had LOTS of therapy through the process.”
