Musician Moby has published his memoir titled Then It Fell Apart. In it he mentions that, in 1999, he ran into Natalie Portman in New York… and kissed her. This he wrote without seeking the Oscar-winner’s permission or consent. As soon as the book came out and its contents became public. Natalie P gave a statement disputing Moby’s claim, adding that what she recalls is a “much older man being creepy with me” (Moby was then 33 years old,
Natalie P says she was barely 18). i This made the musician realise his mistake J and, on May 25. he apologised to her on 1 Instagram:”! tried to treat everyone with ] dignity and respect, but nonetheless it was truly inconsiderate [of] me to not let them know before the book was released. So for that 1 apologise to Natalie, as well as the other people I wrote about in Then It Fell Apart, without telling them beforehand. Also I accept that, given the dynamic of our almost 14-year age difference. I absolutely should’ve acted more responsibly and respectfully when Natalie and 1 first met almost 20 years ago.”
Maybe Moby just wants to be lifted up.
