A biopic of Britney Spears’ meteoric rise to fame may be in the works, but the Princess of Pop wants no part of it. In fact, she disapproves of it entirely.
Just a day after it was announced that Lifetime will be making a two-hour movie about the “Make Me” singer’s life, a spokesperson for Spears has publicly denounced the project.
“Britney Spears will not be contributing in any way, shape or form to the Lifetime biopic, nor does it have her blessing.” a rep told Us Weekly.
As previously reported, the TV film — simply titled Britney — will star newcomer Natasha Bassett as Spears. According to Lifetime’s announcement, the flick will follow the “tumultuous true story” of Spears’ life as it covers her much talked-about relationship with Justin Timberlake, her two marriages to Jason Alexander and Kevin Federline, and her highly-publicized breakdown.
So far, a release date has not been set.
