Britney Spears reveals she is writing new memoir after clinching deal ‘worth £11.4m’

Britney Spears has announced she is writing a new tell-all memoir, saying the process has been “healing and therapeutic”.

The pop star, who was freed from a controversial 13-year conservatorship arrangement in November 2020, says the process has confronted her with memories of her early life, and experiences under the court order.

It comes after US media reported that Spears had reached a $15m (£11.4m) deal with publisher Simon & Schuster for the book.

“I’m writing a book at the moment and as it’s actually healing and therapeutic,” Spears wrote on Instagram.

“It’s also hard bringing up past events in my life…I’ve never been able to express openly.”
