Accounts of Morrissey's Homosexual Relationship Edited Out of U.S. Autobiography Release
The singer's account of his relationship with photographer Jake Owens Walters was taken out of the book, as well as an image.
The story first appeared on Billboard.com.
Morrissey's aptly-named Autobiography makes its debut stateside this week, albeit with one hitch: de-emphasizing his reported relationship with photographer Jake Owens Walters.
The book, published in the U.S. by G.T. Putnam's Sons, removes a photograph of Walters from the original autobiography -- in fact, it takes out Walters' name completely in an account of a night with the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, SPIN reports via WENN.
The two-year relationship with Walters reportedly led Morrissey to dub himself "humasexual" -- or "attracted to humans," he said in a statement.
The relationship was originally revealed after the book's initial publication in the U.K., though the rocker didn't specify explicitly whether or not they were lovers.
Autobiography was released Dec. 3 in the U.S.
