Published Dec 04, 2013When Morrissey released his Autobiography in Britain earlier this fall, one of book's most significant revelations involved a two-year personal relationship with a man named Jake Owen Walters in the mid-'90s. Now, the U.S. edition of the book has arrived, and reports are suggesting that some of the passages involving Walters have been edited or removed entirely.
According to a report from WENN, many of the references to Walters that appeared in the original version of Autobiography that was released in the UK have been altered. This includes a story about a night out with Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, from which Walters' name has apparently been excised. Furthermore, a childhood photograph of Walters has been left out.
The publishers have not yet commented on the apparent changes, so it's not known whose decision it was to tweak the book, or why.
The U.S. edition hit shelves yesterday (December 3) through G.P. Putnam's Sons. This week also sees the release of an audiobook edition read by Walking Dead actor David Morrissey.
