US Version of Morrissey's Autobiography Edits Out Homosexual Relationship

The relationship was deemphasized...
Morrissey's autobiography releases in the US this week but is missing the details of a gay encounter with photographer Jake Owens Walters. SPIN reports that G.T. Putnam's Sons, who are publishing the book in the US, removed a photograph of the photographer and took his name out of a story involving a night spent out with Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.
Morrissey had a two-year relationship with Walters, which reportedly led him to label himself as "humasexual," or "attracted to humans." The book did not specifically note whether they were lovers or not but otherwise made it clear that they were involved in a fashion.
