Of all the e-mails I receive and there are lots and lots and lots, by far the number one question everyone asks is, "When is the Andrew Morton book coming out?" Like I tell everyone, an ISBN was issued a long time ago in anticipation of the book, but that rumor was, Andrew had given up because it was too difficult to find out anything that had not been said before.
Apparently, Andrew has not given up, and has instead angered the Scientologists to the point that he is now in hiding. Morton told the Sunday Express "I have received threats from the Scientologists and things have become pretty heavy - to the extent that it's almost more than my lawyers can handle. I've sold my flat and I'm not telling anyone where I'm moving to. I intend to disappear for a while."
The reason for the renewed threats is that Andrew Morton's forthcoming book questions his relationship with Katie Holmes, his controversial beliefs and his sexuality. According to In Touch, Holmes is "petrified" about the revelations in the biography, which is expected to hit shelves next year.
Now expected to hit shelves next year is something that has been said repeatedly over the past few years. In my opinion, Andrew had been stymied and was just going to give up until Tom got together with Katie. Because she had friends at one point in her life that were not regulated by Tom, she may have let things slip to them before being cut off from them permanently. Using those friends, Andrew may have found enough to come up with a book. Maybe. It could just be Andrew trying to let us know he is still out there.
As of now, the book is scheduled for January 2008, which would indicate we would be getting leaks soon. Let's hope so.
