Billy Joel’s Memoir The Book of Joel Prevented from Being Published
It seems that Bill Joel’s memoir, The Book of Joel was mysteriously halted from going to the presses, and according to sources, his ex-wife Katie Lee is the reason why.
His book apparently shows her to be a spoiled person who lived the rock star life and was trying to get famous herself. When she got a copy of the manuscript, she was very upset, and stopped it from getting published.
Someone else who saw the book said Joel depicts her in a positive way and even includes passages in her own voice. Fred Schruers, who co-wrote the memoir with Joel, did not comment. His spokeswoman said she “had nothing to do with the book’s cancellation.”
Katie Lee also recently released a fiction book called Groundswell.
