London (ANI): Popstar Britney Spears began drinking at the age of 13, lost virginity at 14 and then started drugs at the age of 15, according to the tell-all book by mum Lynne Spears. Lynne has made some sensational revelations in her book due to release on September 16. In her book 'Through the Storm', Lynne revealed that the 26-year-old singer began drinking at the age of 13, lost her virginity at 14, and then started taking drugs at 15.
The Toxic singer allegedly had her first drink after joining Disney's squeaky-clean Mickey Mouse Club. Lynne also claims that the 14-year-old Britney then had sex with an 18-year-old high school in her home town of Kentwood, Louisiana soon after she quit the TV show. She said that she regrets handing over control of Britney's career to managers and allowing her daughter to be promoted as a sex object in raunchy videos at such a young age.
As Britney pursued her career, Lynne let her 16-year-old daughter sleep with Justin Timberlake, despite claiming she was a virgin. "Lynne thought Britney was in love and Justin was good for her," the Sun quoted a source, as saying. Britney was once caught with cocaine and cannabis on a private jet, when she was 16.
The book is set to deepen the rift between Britney and Lynne.
