As the situation surrounding Britney Spears’ conservatorship takes one dramatic twist after another, the “Toxic” singer’s sister is preparing to speak her own truth.
Jamie Lynn Spears, best known for her starring role on Nickelodeon comedy series “Zoey 101”, is writing a memoir, however, the information first released was never meant to be sent to the public.
On Friday afternoon Worthy Publishing, an imprint of Hachette Book Group, released a statement to People.
“Earlier today that premature information about Jamie Lynn Spears’s still-in-development book project has been erroneously released online to book retail sites,” the statement said.
“We deeply regret that incorrect and incomplete information about her book has appeared in the public space, particularly at this sensitive time for Jamie Lynn and her family,” they continued. “Jamie Lynn’s book has been in development over the past 12 months and will allow the world to hear her inspiring story in her own words, for the first time. We look forward to sharing accurate and complete details about the project at the appropriate time and to celebrating the release of her memoir with Jamie Lynn and her fans next year.”
The initial information suggested the book was to be called I Must Confess: Family, Fame, and Figuring It Out —a reference to Britney’s “…Baby One More Time” but at this point that was “a placeholder title for internal use only” and the book is still untitled.
Other information from publisher Hachette Book Group, which has since been deleted, said the “intimate memoir” will present her “unfiltered story on her own terms about being a child star, becoming a teen mom, the years she stepped away from the spotlight, the terrifying ATV accident that threatened her daughter’s life, and discovering the most important elements of life: love and family.”
It also claimed the book would include “never-before-heard stories that are at times funny, inspiring, messy, and uncomfortable. Like having her mom’s credit card declined at Limited Too when her sister was on the radio. How it feels to have inspired ’16 and Pregnant’ with her own life story. Why her daughter’s ATV accident caused her to re-evaluate and redirect her life. And why her family is just like any other family.”
The yet-to-be-named book is slated for publication in January 2022.
