Britney Spears’ upcoming memoir is faced with some legal concerns from two of her exes over the content of the book.

According to The Sun, attorneys of Justin Timberlake and Colin Farrell demanded that excerpts containing details about their relationship with the pop star be removed.

As a result, the memoir titled The Woman In Me is believed to have been delayed by four months.

"Lawyers demanded to see her book in advance and were adamant that some of the revelations were removed," a source told the outlet. "There are still plenty of gobsmacking tales but Justin and Colin were conscious about what could be said about them."

For the unversed, Spears was linked to Timberlake from 1999 to 2002. Meanwhile, the Toxic singer was in a rumoured romance with Farrell in 2003, however, it was never confirmed.

Britney announced the release date for the tell-all book earlier this month. It is slated to hit the bookshelves in October this year.

The content of the book is kept under wraps, though its publisher Gallery Books promises a "brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope."

As per a press release, the memoir will cast a spotlight on the "incredible journey (and) strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history."

The Woman In Me will presumably detail Spears' rise and fall in front of the camera, including her alleged abusive conservatorship under her father that lasted for nearly 14 years.
