Britney Spears posted on Instagram that her new memoir “The Woman In Me” set a huge milestone one day after the book, filled with numerous bombshells, finally hit stores.

In a post on Tuesday, the 41-year-old pop singer shared an image of the cover of her tell-all book with a message that read, “My story. On my terms. At last.”

She captioned the post, “It’s happening. My book is the highest selling celebrity memoir in history and it’s only day 1! Thank you to the fans who have been so supportive! Love you all! #TheWomanInMe…”

The Daily Wire has reached out to Simon and Schuster to confirm the “Womanizer” hitmaker’s comments alleging her book is the “highest selling” celebrity memoir in history.

If this does turn out to be true, it would mean the pop star can claim bragging rights over Prince Harry after the release of his memoir “Spare” in January set a new Guinness World Record as the fastest selling non-fiction book ever, Newsweek noted.

After the royal’s book came out on January 10, the publisher Penguin Random House released one day sales that exceeded 1.4 million copies, the outlet noted.

“The Woman In Me” is currently leading Amazon and Barnes & Noble best selling book charts, though the booksellers have yet to release data confirming its first day sales, Newsweek noted. Simon and Schuster has also yet to release the book’s first day sales.


Throughout the book, Spears drops several bombshells like the alleged abortion she had at 19 while dating Justin Timberlake, teen drinking with her mom, feeling “objectified” by her parents/media, and the how she felt about the conservatorship she was under that was controlled by her father Jamie Spears for nearly 14 years.

Spears claims in the book that while she was dating Timberlake, she got pregnant and ended up getting an abortion, claiming the actor “didn’t want to be a father.” The two dated from 1999 — when she was 17 and he was 18 — until 2002, Variety noted.

She wrote that if it had been left up to her alone, she never would have aborted the baby, but added that Timberlake said they were “too young” to have a child. “To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”

In November 2021, a judge terminated the conservatorship.

“The Woman In Me” released on October 24.
