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.
