UPDATE: Author Says New Book Does Not Claim That Angelina Jolie Slept With Mother's Boyfriend


On Tuesday, The New York Daily News reported that a new book by controversial biographer Andrew Morton revealed that Angelina Jolie had slept with her mother's boyfriend when she was 16.

Radar Online quoted an anonymous source as saying that "[w]hen Ange admitted the story to her brother James just a few weeks ago, even he turned on her. She has hardly anyone left in life who likes or trusts her."

Now, according to Life & Style Weekly, author Andrew Morton has spoken up, saying that the rumors aren't true, and that, while he is writing a biography of Jolie, the book will not make any such accusation. "It's about as true as I'm sitting on this horse," he said.
