Britney Spears will pen a tell-all memoir, lifting the lid on her toxic conservatorship ordeal, stellar pop career and troubled personal life, according to reports.

Publishing insiders say that the singer, 40, has reached a deal worth up to $15 million with Simon & Schuster following a frenzied bidding war, according to Page Six.

Ms Spears has been hinting that she is ready to write a book, posting a picture of a typewriter on Instagram in January, with the caption: “Shall I start from the beginning?”

In November, she was freed from a restrictive conservatorship which controlled her life and money for nearly 14 years, after a Los Angeles judge ruled it was "no longer required".

The decision came after she alleged in a shocking public testimony that the conservatorship was abusive, stating that she had been placed on lithium, forced to perform, and denied the ability to remove her birth control.

Her plight rallied people around the world behind a #FreeBritney movement, hundreds of whom gathered outside the Los Angeles courthouse.

The report comes just weeks after her sister, Jamie Lynn released a scathing book called ‘Things I should have said,’ in which she made a number of claims against the singer.

In one episode, Jamie Lynn said that Britney took a knife, locked them both in a room and said: “Baby, I’m scared.”

Britney vehemently denied the claims, shooting back on social media: “I’ve never been around you ever with a knife or even would I ever even think to do such…only a scum person would make up such things about someone.”

She has since added: “We are supposed to have each other's backs. All I know is I love you unconditionally!!! So go ahead and say whatever you want... it’s so tacky for a family to fight publicly like this!!! You say you love me... yet your loyalty is still with the people that hurt me the most!!!”

Representatives for Ms Spears and Simon & Schuster have not commented on the reported deal.
