That’s a super click-baity headline and I apologize, but it was as brief as I could be while still letting you know how important the news was to Brit fans.
According to Britneys new book, “The Woman in Me,” shot to number one on Amazon Tuesday when word got out the book would detail an abortion she got back when she was dating Justin Timberlake.
Now People Magazine has confirmed that in the tome she explains it was because Justin didn’t want to be a father. Which, by the way, can be a very mature decision to make, but should still be a mutual one.
In an excerpt, she reveals, “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,” Spears, now 41, says. “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.”
“If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”
Spears writes of her experience undergoing the abortion: “To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”
