It looks like we're finally going to find out just how "Toxic" things really were: Britney Spears has inked a massive $15 million USD publishing deal to write a tell-all memoir.

According to a report by Page Six, Spears signed a landmark agreement with publishing giant Simon & Shuster following a bidding war between multiple publishers.

The pop star's memoir is reportedly one of the highest-selling book proposals of all time, following only the rights to Barack and Michelle Obama's books, which sold in 2017 to Penguin Random House for a combined sum allegedly exceeding $60 million.

Spears has been hinting at a response to the "misleading or outrageous claims" in her sister Jamie Lynn's new memoir Things I Should Have Said  — over which the singer has since issued a cease and desist order — for several weeks now, even sharing a photo of a typewriter knickknack on Instagram captioned: "Shall I start from THE BEGINNING???"
One can only imagine how much of a page-turner the yet-untold drama behind the #FreeBritney movement to finally end the pop star's "abusive" 13-year conservatorship would be. That's a long time for tea to steep, after all.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny ruled in favour of the arrangement's termination and officially freed Spears on November 13, 2021.
