Moby Publicly Apologizes to Natalie Portman - Read His Statement

Moby is speaking out with a public apology to Natalie Portman.

The 53-year-old singer wrote about his relationship with the actress in his new memoir and he is apologizing for not telling her beforehand.

Natalie released a statement in which she said they never actually dated and she thought he was a “creepy” older man. He then said she lied in her statement.

Now, Moby is speaking out with an apology.

“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,” Moby said in the statement. “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,” he added. “I tried to treat everyone I included in Then It Fell Apart with dignity and respect, but nonetheless it was truly inconsiderate for me to not let them know before the book was released.”

“So for that I apologize, to Natalie, as well as the other people I wrote about in Then It Fell Apart without telling them beforehand,” he concluded. “Also I accept that given the dynamic of our almost 14 year age difference I absolutely should’ve acted more responsibly and respectfully when Natalie and I first met almost 20 years ago.”

    If they met in 2001, he would have been 36, not 33. Even IF she were 20 (as she’d have been in 2001, 19/20) that’s a 16 year difference, not almost 14. that’s creepy, a dude nearly twice her age hitting on her
