Some say his ex-wife is the reason why...
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.
