Britney Spears has hired Michelle Williams to narrate her forthcoming biography The Woman In Me.
The Toxic singer’s much-anticipated book will be spoken by the Blue Valentine actress, 43, while Britney, 41, will record an introduction.
Announcing Michelle’s role, the Womanizer singer said in a statement: ‘This book has been a labor of love and all the emotions that come with it.
‘Reliving everything has been exciting, heart-wrenching, and emotional, to say the least. For those reasons, I will only be reading a small part of my audiobook.’
She added to People: ‘I am so grateful to the amazing Michelle Williams for reading the rest of it.’
The Shutter Island star, who had been nominated for five Oscars, said to the publication: ‘I stand with Britney.’
It had previously been rumoured that Britney had hired a celebrity to narrate her biography, with it stated that she had sought Reese Witherspoon initially, who was unavailable.
Last year, the music legend revealed her book, amid claims that she had struck a contract worth $15 million (£12.3 million).
Fans got a sneak peek at the memoir in July, when the cover art and title were revealed ahead of time.
Britney’s personal life has been rocked when her husband, Sam Asghari, filed for divorce in August, ending their 14-month marriage.
According to reports, she granted her ‘final sign-off’ on the book weeks before their breakup, which means there would be no ‘changes made’ to reflect their split.
While nothing is known about what will be included in the final chapters, Britney has previously stated that she underwent ‘tonnes of treatment’ to finish the book.

She previously teased on Instagram: ‘I worked my ass off for this book, I had a lot of therapy to get this book done, so you guys better like it.
‘And if you don’t, that’s cool too.’
The Woman In Me was described as a ‘brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope.’
It will ‘illuminate the enduring power of music and love – and the importance of a woman telling her own story, on her own terms.’
The Woman In Me will be published by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, and is available to pre order now.
