Britney Spears’ Book Is Allegedly Delayed Due To Legal Concerns Surrounding What She Might Reveal About Some Hollywood Stars
If you’ve been hunkering down underneath your desk in anticipation of Britney Spears’ upcoming “world-shaking” memoir/autobiography/whatever it’s classified as when someone else writes your life story for you, and you get to take credit for it, you can come out of hiding for a bit! It looks like the book’s release might not happen now until the very end of this year at the earliest because of legal concerns surrounding information two unnamed A-listers don’t want revealed. And as usual, when there’s some shiny new carrion below, Ryan Murphy has reportedly swooped in and hopes to work with Britney to create a tell-all show about her years under conservatorship.
As we know, ever since Britney’s been “freed,” she’s had no problem calling people (including her own sons) out and naming names (though mostly those with the last name Spears). According to The Daily Mail, some other celebrities fear her book might follow suit, and that’s created a legal scare for her publisher after two unnamed Hollywood stars raised objections to possibly being included in it.
The 41-year-old pop superstar was previously expected to have released her tell-all book back in February, but it now isn’t expected to arrive any sooner than late this year.
Its publisher, Simon & Schuster, has put the book on holding after receiving letters from two Hollywood stars, The Sun reported on Sunday.
‘Britney is brutally honest in the book — there are a lot of nervous A-listers,’ claimed a source. ‘Strongly worded legal letters have been sent to the publishers by people who know Britney and who fear what she has written.’
It’s unclear if the people who wrote letters to the publisher had confirmed that they were mentioned in the book, or if they took that step proactively.
However, Simon & Schuster is reportedly in talks with its legal team over how to proceed with the book’s production. ‘There is no movement at the moment and there are concerns over when it will eventually be able to come out,’ the source added.
And brace yourselves for Evan Peters as Kevin “K-Fed” Federline and Sarah Paulson in jowl prosthetics as Daddy Jamie Spears because Ryan Murphy has feelers out to recruit Britney to help him produce a tell-all show about her life under conservatorship.
‘Ryan is openly fascinated by the Britney saga and of course, he is one of the few filmmakers in Hollywood, maybe the only one, really, with a professional relationship with Britney,’ a source said.
‘He knows her, he knows her world and he knows why the story of her conservatorship resonated with so many people.
Murphy, who allegedly ‘hates being accused of exploiting victims,’ is hoping to get Spears on board as producer, after he did the same thing with Monica Lewinsky when making Impeachment: American Crime Story, which detailed the former White House intern’s relationship with former President Bill Clinton.
I’d guess that “Beat Your Feet” dweeb Justin Timberlake was one of the letter writers; he’s in the feeble vow renewal stage of his marriage now and probably needs to stay under the radar and out of trouble with Jessica Biel. Hopefully, Brit goes the Jessica Simpson “Movie Star” short story route, and her book will give us enough deets to pretty easily guess everyone she’s talking about, though she’s not one to dance around things–except that one room of her mansion that serves as the backdrop for every single one of her dancey social media posts!
