US pop singer Britney Spears has landed a bombshell book deal worth $15 million.
Publishing insiders reported that Spears reached the landmark deal with publishing house Simon & Schuster for her tell-all memoir about her career, “Toxic” life, and family.
The deal wrapped up after a bidding war with multiple publishers over her book.
An insider claimed that the deal was one of the biggest of all time, after the Obamas.
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.
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”, released in January this year.
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 Spears will no longer be bullied by her family.
Since the singer’s 13-year conservatorship ended in November 2021, the pop star has been the subject of a number of documentaries that have focused on her legal battles and bids for freedom, many of which she has criticized.
The "Circus" singer recently hinted she’s ready to start writing her book. Sharing a photo of an old-school typewriter, she wrote in early January, “Shall I start from THE BEGINNING???”.
