Moby has made EDM News with new accusations in his book.
EDM Artist and DJ Moby has recently made claims in his new book that he dated Natalie Portman.
Well she has responded, and what she said might not be the answer Moby fans wanted to hear.
Moby has gained fame from Beatport, and continues to stay in the starlight only because of their support.
Moby & Natalie Portman
Moby, In his new book, alleges that Portman flirted with him in his dressing room when he was 33 and she was 20. He goes on to claim that the two started dating and that he “tried to be her boyfriend”, but eventually she broke it off after meeting someone else – news that came as some relief to him as it meant not having to tell her about his anxiety issues.
None of this is how Portman remembers it and she wants to put the record straight. First things first; she wasn’t 20 when they met, she was barely 18 having recently graduated from high school.
In his memoir, Moby wrote that they had a brief but romantic fling after meeting backstage at one of his shows.”I was a bald binge drinker and [Portman] was a beautiful movie star,” he wrote. “But here she was in my dressing room, flirting with me.”
Moby wrote that the romance was short-lived, though, because the Star Wars and Black Swan actress met another man, which he described as a relief, due to his personal struggles.
Moby responded days later to these reports by uploading a strange, 20 year old picture of him and Portman to his instagram account. Dont forget to read the comments.
He quoted in the pictured:
I recently read a gossip piece wherein Natalie Portman said that we’d never dated. This confused me, as we did, in fact, date. And after briefly dating in 1999 we remained friends for years. I like Natalie, and I respect her intelligence and activism. But, to be honest, I can’t figure out why she would actively misrepresent the truth about our(albeit brief)involvement. The story as laid out in my book Then It Fell Apart is accurate, with lots of corroborating photo evidence, etc.
Ps I completely respect Natalie’s possible regret in dating me(to be fair, I would probably regret dating me, too), but it doesn’t alter the actual facts of our brief romantic history
Moby & Knob Touching
A previous excerpt from Moby’s book talks about how he once “knob-touched” Donald Trump at a party. The incident happened in the days following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
His encounter with Trump happened, if it really happened at all, during one of the latter situations. Moby wrote that he was “dared to” perform the act by brushing up against Donald Trump’s suit jacket.
“Although, in the spirit of alcoholic disclosure, my caveat is this: as I was very drunk and high at the time I’m still not 100% sure it actually happened. But even though this happened almost 20 years ago, I’m still perpetually stunned by the fact that Americans elected as president a dimwitted con man whose only claim to fame is that he once hosted a mediocre reality-TV show.”
