MOBY APOLOGIZES TO NATALIE PORTMAN: Moby apologized to Natalie Portman after she denied the romantic relationship he claims they had, and he responded by doubling down on the claims. The singer appears to be rethinking his decision to include the story in his memoir, Then It Fell Apart. He wrote on Instagram: "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. 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 have a lot of admiration for Natalie, for her intelligence, creativity, and animal rights activism, and I hate that I might have caused her and her family distress."
