Excerpts from Britney Spears’ book reveal that she had an abortion over 20 years ago while she was dating Justin Timberlake.
In a brand-new, shocking teaser for her upcoming memoir, Britney Spears shares more details about her relationship with Justin Timberlake.
Recent reports from the People and TMZ claim that in Britney Spears’s book, The Woman in Me, Spears alleges that Timberlake cheated on her with a different celebrity during their three-year romance. Also, the “Toxic” singer reveals that she had an abortion while she was dating Timberlake as he wanted to avoid fatherhood.
Based on claims made by People magazine on Tuesday, an excerpt on the abortion procedure from Britney Spears’s memoir says, “If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”
The singer stated in the excerpt that she had hoped to start a family with Timberlake however, it happened sooner than she had expected. Britney Spears claims that the pregnancy “was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy. But Justin wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young.”
Well, both parties have refrained from commenting on the matter and we are still unaware when the incident happened as the couple parted ways in 2002. However, readers can expect to know more about this topic when Britney Spears’s book is published.
Britney Spears’s memoir will be published on October 24th and “NO ONE KNOWS WHAT I REALLY THOUGHT… UNTIL NOW,” states the book’s teaser, which the singer shared on Sunday. Actress Michelle Williams will provide the narration for the audiobook and the memoir promises to provide insight into the 41-year-old’s turbulent decades in the public eye.
Apart from the abortion part, the “Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” singer talks about her first kiss with Timberlake, which happened while they were teenagers on The Mickey Mouse Club, in her much-awaited memoir.
