Moby apologizes to Natalie Portman over book controversy

Moby has issued an apology of sorts after writing in his recently published memoir “Then It Fell Apart” that he dated Natalie Portman when she was 20 — a claim the actress refuted.

“As some time has passed I’ve realized that many of the criticisms leveled at me regarding my inclusion of Natalie in Then It Fell Apart are very valid,” he wrote in an Instagram caption alongside a shot of the text “from moby, an apology.” “I also fully recognize that it was truly inconsiderate of me to not let her know about her inclusion in the book beforehand, and equally inconsiderate for me to not fully respect her reaction.”

In his book, Moby had characterized their relationship as dating, writing that she had flirted with him in his dressing room at a concert and that he visited her at Harvard, where their romance blossomed.

Portman, however, had a different recollection — and said she was only 18 at the time.

“I was surprised to hear that he characterized the very short time that I knew him as ‘dating’ because my recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school,” she said in a recent interview for the website of British Harper’s Bazaar. “He used this story to sell his book [which] was very disturbing to me,” she continued. “I was a fan and went to one of his shows when I had just graduated. We only hung out a handful of times before I realized that this was an older man who was interested in me in a way that felt inappropriate.”
