Moby Cancels Book Tour, Is “Going Away For Awhile”

Written by Alex Gallagher on May 30, 2019

Moby is going away. At least for a bit.

After making the super cool decision to brag about having a relationship with a teenage Natalie Portman when he was a 33-year old man, with Portman later denying his claims and labelling him “creepy” and “inappropriate”, electronic musician Moby is cancelling “all upcoming public appearances for the foreseeable future”, according to a post on his website.

The cancellation includes all tour dates for his new memoir Then It Fell Apart, which includes the story about Portman along with an anecdote about Lana Del Rey shutting him down like a pro.

In a new Instagram post, Moby has apologised for his actions. “I want to apologize again, and to say clearly that all of this has been my own fault,” the musician wrote. “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.”

The post comes days after Moby apologised to Portman, claiming “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.”
