Britney Spears' much-anticipated book, released on October 24, is a total tell-all about her life.

In a shocking revelation, Britney discloses in her book that she had an abortion while she was dating Justin Timberlake.


In her book, she wrote, "It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn't a tragedy. I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day.

"This would just be much earlier than I'd anticipated.

"But Justin definitely 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."

Questions had arisen about whether Britney's 2003 song 'Everytime' might allude to her decision to terminate her pregnancy.

However, Annet Artani, who co-wrote the song with Britney, clarified that the song was purely about their recent breakups.

In another shocking revelation, Britney has now disclosed her age at the time she lost her virginity, addressing her team's portrayal of her as an 'eternal virgin.'

"Given that I had so many teenage fans, my managers and press people had long tried to portray me as an eternal virgin," the 41-year-old penned as she went on to note that she'd lived with her ex-boyfriend, NSYNC star Justin while they dated.

"I'd been having sex since I was fourteen," she added.

Britney also went on to question why her managers would 'work so hard to claim I was some kind of young-girl virgin even into my twenties'.

"Whose business was it if I'd had sex or not?" she added.

Britney Spears' memoir is about way more than just her virginity, you know?

She also spills the tea about her short fling with Irish actor Colin Farrell, giving readers a sneak peek into her personal life and love interests.

In an interview with W Magazine in 2002, Britney shared that she had sex with her former boyfriend Timberlake. “I’ve only slept with one person my whole life,” she told the outlet.

“It was two years into my relationship with Justin, and I thought he was the one. … But I was wrong! I didn’t think he was gonna go on Barbara Walters and sell me out.”


Spears released her much-anticipated memoir on Tuesday, through Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

“It is finally time for me to raise my voice and speak out, and my fans deserve to hear it directly from me,” Spears told PEOPLE in an email interview for last week's exclusive cover story.

“No more conspiracy, no more lies — just me owning my past, present and future.”

Britney said she was set up with Colin through a 'club promoter friend' and described their romance as being like a 'two-week brawl'.

"Brawl is the only word for it," the 'Womanizer' singer said.

"We were all over each other, grappling so passionately it was like we were in a street fight."


Even though Colin Farrell denied any romantic thing with Britney Spears before, now she's dropping hints that something might have been going on between them.

She's like, "Yeah, there might have been something there with Colin, but honestly, I was still dealing with my feelings for my ex, Justin Timberlake."

Britney opened up about struggling to have other people take control of her narrative in the PEOPLE cover story.

“Over the past 15 years or even at the start of my career, I sat back while people spoke about me and told my story for me,” she said.

“After getting out of my conservatorship, I was finally free to tell my story without consequences from the people in charge of my life."
