Britney Spears has confirmed that she is in the process of writing a book, confirming recent US media reports that the star is planning to write a new memoir.

Spears shared the news in a post on Instagram Monday night.

The singer said the memorial will address painful events in her life that “she’s never been able to openly express.”

In November, a judge ended the legal guardianship that had governed many aspects of his life for more than a decade.

Spears was taken into custody under the watchful eye of her father, Jamie Spears, in 2008 when the star was going through a mental health crisis.

The controversial deal allowed him to take control of his finances and work decisions, as well as important personal matters such as visiting his teenage children and whether he could remarry.

Though the star didn’t reveal details about a potential date or publisher, Page Six reported in February that he’d inked a $15 million ($11.4 million) deal with publishers Simon & Schuster to report on his life, career and relationship. his family during and after his care.

Spears wrote that the process of writing the book was “medical and therapeutic”, although she said it was difficult to narrate the events of her past life.

The 40-year-old said she took an “intellectual approach” to write the memoir.

But the star also impressed her mother and sister, who, she said, were “content with writing her books because I couldn’t even get a cup of coffee to driving my car.”

Spears has been in a public feud with her sister Jamie Lynn since later appearing on Good Morning America to promote her book Things I Should Have Said.

The book details her own life story, including her young daughter’s near-fatal accident in 2017, her relationship with Britney, and her role in the singer’s disputed custody.
