Moby cancels UK book tour and reveals he's "going to go away for a while"

30 May 2019, 10:39 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Moby has cancelled his upcoming book tour in the UK and Ireland, and revealed he's "going to go away for a while".

The cancellation is announced after Natalie Portman denied dating Moby, which he writes about in his new memoir, Then It Fell Apart.

Moby's site posted the book tour update, which reads, "Moby is canceling all upcoming public appearances for the foreseeable future. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. all tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase, and Moby is happy to provide signed bookplates to everyone who bought tickets to these events."

In his new Instagram post, Moby writes, "I’m going to go away for awhile. But before I do I want to apologize again, and to say clearly that all of this has been my own fault. I am the one who released the book without showing it to the people I wrote about. I’m the one who posted defensively and arrogantly. I’m the one who behaved inconsiderately and disrespectfully, both in 2019 and in 1999. There is obviously no one else to blame but me. Thank you, and I’m sorry."

After Portman denied their romantic relationship in an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Moby uploaded a public apology directed at Portman and the other people mentioned in his book, "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...I tried to treat everyone I included in Then It Fell Apartwith dignity and respect, but nonetheless it was truly inconsiderate for me to not let them know before the book was released.
So for that I apologize, to Natalie, as well as the other people I wrote about in Then It Fell Apart without telling them beforehand."

Moby's new memoir, Then It Fell Apart is out now.
