Many details involving Morrissey's two-year relationship with a man "are missing or edited down" from the U.S. version of the singer's autobiography according to WENN.
The news agency noticed that several anecdotes involving photographer Jake Owen Walters, whom Morrissey "writes movingly" of, appear in the U.K. version but not the U.S. version. Among the material cut out is "a photograph of Walters as a boy" and an exclusion of Walters in "a story detailing a night out with The Pretenders star Chrissie Hynde." The two were in a relationship in the mid-1990s, though it may not have been sexual in nature.
The passages about Walters first made headlines in October, upon the U.K. release of the memoir, when the notoriously private singer opened up about his sexuality. "Unfortunately, I am not homosexual. In technical fact, I am humasexual," the 54-year-old singer wrote on website True to You. "I am attracted to humans. But, of course ... not many."
"Autobiography" was released Oct. 13 in the U.K. and Dec. 3 in the U.S. The book's U.S. publisher, G.P. Putnam's Sons, has not yet responded to WENN for comment.
