AceShowbiz - Britney Spears could be expected to be sharing her side of the story on old rumors involving Colin Farrell. After words came out that her upcoming tell-all memoir has gotten delayed, the "Hold It Against Me" hitmaker is rumored to be addressing her bitter feeling over the actor's inappropriate gift in the book.
In a report published on Monday, May 9, The Sun brought up a past story that Britney received a "Honk if you've slept with Colin Farrell" bumper sticker from Colin after their brief fling. A source told the outlet that the pop star was left upset by it and planned to share it in her tome.
"Britney has worked her way through the extraordinarily emotional challenges and troubles of her life in the 2000s for the book," the source first reminded. "Those were especially tough recollections and challenging days to cover those experiences."
"But during those heady days, Britney also had many other adventures as a single woman, including that experience with Colin," the source continued. "And she is keen to get her time with Colin laid down on paper and presented from her perspective. She has been wanting to set the record straight for a long time."
Offering more background on Britney and Colin's fling, the source shared, "At that time, he was the hottest young actor in Hollywood, and she was swept away by the romance of him taking a shine to her. People forget that then she was not that experienced with boys or the dating game, so when they had their fling, she was taken aback by how nonchalant and disconnected he was."
"She was shocked at how he treated it all like a joke. And when the car sticker came through, she was deeply annoyed and also angered," the source went on to add that the fling did not go as the ex-girlfriend of Justin Timberlake expected. "She hated the fact that some people were laughing at her."
Elsewhere in the report, the source informed The Sun that Colin did apologize to Britney for his antics. "Colin did try and make peace later, trying to explain his over-the-top behavior was down to his own life issues and battles with drugs and temptation," the source pointed out. "But Britney will get the final word."
In the meantime, Britney's bombshell autobiography might not hit the shelves in the fall of 2023 as initially planned. On May 6, The Sun reported that its release date would be pushed back because of legal concerns over her flings with A-listers. A source told the outlet, "Strongly worded legal letters have been sent to the publishers by people who know Britney and who fear what she has written."
