The release of Britney Spears’ memoirs has been delayed due to demands from Justin Timberlake and Colin Farrell to remove passages about them.

The release of Britney Spears’ memoirs has been postponed for four months due to lawsuits filed by the lawyers of her former lovers: Colin Farrell and Justin Timberlake.

According to The Sun, representatives of 42-year-old Timberlake and 47-year-old Farrell demanded to review the contents of the book titled «Woman Within Me,» in which the 41-year-old singer promised to reveal details about her relationships with both of them.

Their lawyers stated that they would sue Britney Spears if certain excerpts from the book were not removed before publication. «Lawyers demanded to preview her book in advance and were adamant that some things should be removed,» said an insider to the publication. «The book contains many stunning stories, but Justin and Colin were aware that some things could be disclosed.» The release of the book was delayed for four months as discussions were held about what should be removed and what could be left in.

The book, set to be released on October 24, promises a «poignant» account of the singer’s life, personal struggles, family discord, years under her father’s conservatorship, her journey to freedom, and her stage of recovery. «The book has given Britney the opportunity to tell her own story,» said an insider. «It wasn’t easy, of course, but the memoirs will shed light on many aspects for her fans.»

Spears herself revealed that she was writing the book in 2022, stating that it had been a «healing» process for her.

The book will be published by Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster. Spears’s fee for these memoirs amounted to $15 million, making this publishing deal one of the largest since those of Prince Harry, and Barack and Michelle Obama.
