Britney Spears Set To Tell Her Story In Groundbreaking $15 Million Book Deal: Report
Britney Spears' highly anticipated tell-all is reportedly one step closer to being published.
According to Page Six, the pop sensation, 40, made a landmark $15 million deal with publishing house Simon & Schuster for her tell-all memoir about her career and "Toxic" life — not to mention her estranged family.
The publishing insider spil “the deal is one of the biggest of all time, behind the Obamas," after an all out bidding war with other publishing houses.
Ever since the "Lucky" singer was freed from her years-long conservatorship in November 2021, there has been much speculation about whether she'll be sharing her story in a bombshell book.
The chart topper's upcoming tell-all deal now ranks as one of the most lucrative deals in publishing history. In 2017, Barack Obama and Michelle Obama signed the largest book deal for nonfiction with a combined deal of over $60 million. Former president Bill Clinton also got a pretty penny for a book of his own entitled My Life in 2001 that he nabbed for a reported $15 million, per the outlet.

News of Britney's book deal comes on the heels of the release of sister Jamie Lynn Spears' memoir, Things I Should Have Said, which made waves in January ahead of the debut. In the book, the Zoey 101 star, 30, recalled one incident where her older sister allegedly took a knife and locked the two of them in a room and told her, “Baby, I’m scared."
The Crossroads actress has vehemently denied the event in question ever occurred. “I’ve never been around you ever with a knife or even would I ever even think to do such…only a scum person would make up such things about someone,” Britney seethed in a tweet upon the tell-all's release.
In a separate post, Britney stated she was so enraged by her family members that she “should’ve slapped” her younger sister and her mom, Lynne Spears, “across their f***ing faces."
The Spears family — who Britney has claimed did nothing to help her while she was trapped in the allegedly abusive conservatorship — may be in for a wake up call, as the "Gimme More" vocalist previously warned: “Lord have mercy on my family’s souls if I ever do an interview.”
The mother-of-two also teased in January that she was looking to tell her side of the story after she posted a photo to Instagram of a vintage typewriter alongside the caption, “Shall I start from THE BEGINNING???”
