Pop star Britney Spears, who last year won her long legal battle against her conservatorship, has signed a contract with publisher Simon & Schuster to write a book about her life, the New York Post first reported on Monday.
A source close to the “Toxic” singer told CNN that the deal is worth more than $15 million, adding that her decision to write a book was not in response to her sister Jamie Lynn Spears’s memoir, “Things I Should Have Said.”
Britney Spears has criticized her sister’s book, which refers to the singer as “paranoid” and “erratic” at times.
“She was never around me much 15 years ago at that time. So why are they even talking about that unless she wants to sell a book at my expense??? REALLY???” Britney Spears tweeted about her sister’s memoir.
