Britney Spears has finally completed the long-awaited book that delves into her life, her family, and the years she is caring for.
The announcement of the completion of her memoir was cause for celebration among fans. However, the massive shortage of paper has caused a significant delay in the book’s publication, TMZ reported on Saturday.
The sources told the newspaper that there was no expected time to fix the paper shortage, which caused an abrupt halt in the release date.

The Toxic beat maker wrote, “Well, I’m writing a book right now and it’s really healing and curative…It’s also hard to bring up past events in my life.”
I have never been able to express it honestly!!! I can only imagine that I look childish but I was very young with those events happening,” Britney concluded.

The Gimme More singer started putting pen to paper after her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, published her own memoir, Things I Had to Say.
Britney grew upset about the contents and allegations in the book. According to Page Six, the singer’s attorney, Matthew Rosengart, wrote a cease-and-desist letter shortly after the memoir was made publicly available.
“Although Britney has neither read nor intended to read your book, she and her millions of fans are shocked to learn how she has used it for financial gain,” he released in his statement.
“She will not and should not tolerate this,” the lawyer added at the end of the letter.

Father and daughter were quarreling with each other in court during the end of their 13-year guardianship period.
Britney brought allegations to the front, like her father spying on her, while on the flip side, Jamie claimed the singer was spreading lies about him.
