Speaking freely at last: Britney Spears is set to pen new memoir

Britney Spears

It's been quite a monumental and arduous twelve months for our survivor queen Britney Spears. And after what has been a whirlwind of unending legal chaos, her fans are now wondering what is next on the horizon? For one thing, her pending nuptials are finally on the way, but it seems she also now has a memoir on the agenda. Given her iconic life story, alongside the unimaginable abuse she has endured at the hands of an unlawful conservatorship, we can only assume her life story is going to be laden with startling details. With all that said, here is what we know about the project so far.

What are the details of the Britney Spears memoir?

According to People, Britney has signed a book deal with the publishing house Simon & Schuster for a tell-all memoir, worth $15 million. The news of the upcoming memoir comes just three months after a California judge filed a termination of the star's 13-year long conservatorship last November.

Though there has been a lot of talk circulating about the deal, Spears' team and Simon & Schuster have not yet confirmed the deal. However, it looks to be that Britney has been hard at work on this behind the scenes for some time.

The singer has been consistently vocal about her estrangement from her family since the legal arrangement ended. Over the past year sharing several new claims of how she was treated by her family. Especially with her father, Jamie Spears, who  had control over her personal, professional, and financial matters. As it stands, she is still in legal battles with her father, who requested that she continue to pay his legal fees in spite of the arrangement ending.

Ever since her emotionally fraught court address in June 2021, propelled by the help of her "Free Britney" campaign  there has been much debate surrounding the abuse in the conservator system. The star bravely continues to campaign for others who have had similar harsh experiences to hers. Days after the court decision, she revealed in a self-filmed Instagram video that [she's] "here to be an advocate for people with real disabilities and real illnesses," she says. "Hopefully, my story will make an impact and make some changes in the corrupt system."

Spears even shared to her base that she was invited to meet with Congress and share her story. Sharing the letter, sent to her last December, via Instagram. The singer stated [she] "felt like I mattered for the first time in my life!."
