Singer Britney Spears is finally speaking out!
Last month, sister Jamie Lynn Spears released her tell-all memoir “Things I Should Have Said.” Britney and several of her Nickelodeon “Zoey 101” costars have accused Jamie Lynn of lying and fabricating events to sell copies of her book.
Now it seems that Britney is finally ready to share her side of the story in a book deal estimated to be worth $15 million dollars!

According to Page Six, Britney is finally ready to dish on her “Toxic” family in her own tell-all memoir. Britney has been vocal on Instagram and Twitter about her 13-year conservatorship, at one point alleging that her father should be in jail for some of the things that he had done to her.
Now fans and #FreeBritney supporters can finally get Britney’s side of the story in her own tell-all memoir. Sources say that the “Circus” singer, now 40, recently signed a deal with publisher Simon & Schuster for a memoir about her career, life, and family. The deal is estimated to be worth as much as $15 million dollars. One source claimed that the deal “is one of the biggest of all time, behind the Obamas.”
In 2001, Bill Clinton had sold a post-presidential book called “My Life” for $15 million dollars. Jump ahead to 2017, and Barack and Michelle Obama reached a sum that reportedly exceeded $60 million dollars! It’s the largest book deal ever reported for a non-fiction book.
Britney seemed to have teased the book deal back in early January when she posted a photo of an old-fashioned typewriter next to some pink roses on Instagram. In the caption, she wrote, “shall I start from THE BEGINNING???”
Britney Begs Jamie Lynn To Stop ‘Lying For The Hollywood Books’
Although the drama has seemed to have cooled off (for now), fans can’t forget that Britney and Jamie Lynn had been taking shots at each other back and forth on social media throughout most of January.
In one Twitter message, Britney asked her little sister to “please, please stop with these crazy lies for the Hollywood books.” One such lie apparently included a time Britney was alone with Jamie Lynn in a room with a knife.
“Congrats best seller … I’m not surprised at all !!!” Britney wrote in a later message. “The nerve of you to sell a book now and talk s— but your f—ing lying just like you lied about [co-star] Alexa Nikolas !!!!”
“I wish you would take a lie detector test so all these masses of people see you’re lying through your teeth about me !!!!” she wrote. “I wish the almighty, Lord would come down and show this whole world that you’re lying and making money off of me !!!! You are scum, Jamie Lynn.”
Britney Spears: ‘My Family F—ing Killed Me’
In a more recent post in early February, Britney hit back at her family about her stifling conservatorship. At one point, they had sent her to a mental health treatment facility and Britney was alarmed when she realized she was not allowed to leave.
“My family f—ing killed me and that’s exactly what I thought,” she wrote. “I thought that or either it was just a sick joke … maybe someone was gonna walk in the door and say ‘ha ha we fooled ya’ !!! No … that never happened !!!”
“At one point I thought … wait do I have cancer and they don’t want me to know and this is some secret therapy for people with cancer ??? Honestly, it was insane the hours I had to be available to seven different people !!!” she continued.
Britney added that she felt “suffocated” during her conservatorship and that she was “too nice” to her family at the time.
“That was the thing … I was too nice in the conservatorship and never spoke up … they took it too far with me !!!” she continued. “I’ve learned through this that being kind is wonderful … but sometimes with seriously responsibility being kind if worse than two cents … but I couldn’t get angry or scream or anything !!! I felt suffocated !!!”
“Now I would spit in their faces … my one regret in life and my whole 40 years if I could go back in time I would spit in their stupid f—ing faces !!!” she wrote. “I would be the first person to admit I’m pretty messed up by it all and haven’t even come close to sharing all of what they did … it’s honestly shocking but in time I think things will unfold in a bright way !!!”
“I know I have a ways to go so I’m taking it a day at a time !!!” she concluded. “Pss keeping It real !!! Psss I still dream about spitting in their f—ing faces … THAT’S IT !!!”
