Britney Spears’ “brutally honest” memoir has been put on hold over the concerns of some A-listers who knew her, according to a new report.
The US Sun reported on Sunday that Simon & Schuster, the book’s publisher, has received “definitely written legal letters” from those who fear the “Toxic” singer’s writing.
“Britney is brutally honest in the book—there are a lot of nervous A-listers,” an insider source said.
“British legal letters were sent to publishers by people who knew Britney and feared what she wrote.”
The source added that there is no “movement” in the book “at the moment”, but also that there are new concerns that “it may eventually emerge”.
Although not named in the report, Spears, 41, famously dated Justin Timberlake and married Kevin Federline.
Her wedding with Sam Asghari also featured many top-notch attendees including Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, and more.
Representatives from Simon & Schuster and Spears did not immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.

Page Six previously reported that the book by the “Crossroads” star, described by publishers as a “groundbreaking instant best seller”, will be released in the fall.
“Britney’s book is a triumphal story,” a source told us.
“It will cover her most vulnerable moments, her childhood – when she was a little girl with big dreams – breaking up with Justin Timberlake, the moment she shaved her head, and the battle with her family for her conservancy.”
“It’s also a story of survival with her husband, Sam Asghari, who finds a way out of crippled conservatorship and finding happiness.”
Spears teamed up with ghostwriter Sam Lansky to perfect his novel, which he agreed to pen after signing a massive $15 million deal.
The “Sometimes” singer talked about her book in various Instagram posts, revealing at one point that she has “3 different versions” of the book.
