Britney Spears does not mince words when speaking about her father, Jamie Spears, in her bombshell memoir, “The Woman in Me.”
The Princess of Pop, 41, likened her former conservator, 71, to a “cult leader” in one passage when describing how his commands were seemingly never challenged by other members of her family.
Britney writes in her new book that she was required to go to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings four times a week during her 13-year conservatorship because her father thought she had a substance abuse “problem.”
After an “exhausting run” of shows at her “Piece of Me” residency in Las Vegas, the Grammy winner wanted to skip out on one of the meetings to just hang out with her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.
“I had never watched a movie with my kids at home in Vegas. I thought we could pop popcorn and have a nice time together,” she writes.
However, Jamie allegedly responded, “‘No, you have to go,’” prompting Britney to look at her mom, Lynne Spears, for support — but she found none and instead the matriarch allegedly “looked away.”
“At that moment, I started to feel like I was in a cult and my father was the cult leader,” the “Toxic” singer says. “They were treating me like I was beholden to him.”
Britney then details the grueling schedule she had during her conservatorship, which consisted of four AA meetings, two hours of therapy, three hours of training a week, fan meet-and- greets and three shows.
“I was burned out,” the “Slave 4 U” singer writes. “And I wanted to control my own destiny.”
Her father’s rigorous demands allegedly also included a “strict diet,” which she writes about in another part of her book and allegedly consisted of only chicken and canned vegetables.

“Two years is a long time to not be able to eat what you want, especially when it’s your body and your work and your soul making the money that everyone’s living off of,” the “Sometimes” singer writes.
“Two years of asking for french fries and being told no. I found it so degrading.”
A California judge granted the Louisiana native — who has a history of alcohol abuse — the right to be Britney’s conservator in 2008, which meant he oversaw all of her personal and financial decisions.
However, when the guardianship became an apparent abuse of power, Britney delivered a powerful 23-minute court testimony in June 2021, in which she alleged for the first time that Jamie and his cohorts had “bullied” her.
Jamie was suspended as conservator less than three months later in September 2021.
Britney’s conservatorship was then terminated altogether in November 2021 after nearly 14 years.
Jamie has maintained his innocence and once said via his attorney that he “loves” the “… Baby One More Time” singer “unconditionally” and has “tried to do what is in her best interests, whether as a conservator or her father.”
