About 300 pages with an audio format narrated by actress Michelle Williams, The Woman in Me was first confirmed in July, with reports saying the publishing rights were auctioned off to Simon & Schuster for a whopping $15 million. Delving into details about Spears’ career, family, 13-year conservatorship and high profile relationships, the memoir included a number of bombshell revelations.

For one, the “Gimme More” musician claims she had an abortion while she was dating Justin Timberlake, whom she claims wasn’t ready to be a father. She also admits to having cheated on the *NSYNC singer once after finding out about his alleged affairs, and says he sent her a framed letter soon after breaking up with her over text.

Of her 55-hour marriage to Jason Alexander, Spears said she was “just honestly very drunk.” And of her fling with Colin Farrell, she wrote, “We wound up having a two-week brawl … Brawl is the only word for it — we were all over each other, grappling so passionately it was like we were in a street fight.”
