Did Billy Joel's Ex-Wife Stop His Book From Getting Published??

Looks that way.

Billy Joel's new memoir The Book of Joel was mysteriously stopped from hitting the presses and insiders think that Joel's ex-wife Katie Lee was to blame.

The book allegedly depicted her as a spoiled woman who lived the rock star life and was hoping to find fame herself. When Lee got a copy of the manuscript, she was NOT happy and fought to stop the book from getting published.

Another source, however, got an advanced copy as well and says that Joel actually paints Lee in a good light and even includes passages in which Lee speaks in her own voice.

Fred Schruers, who co-wrote the book with Joel declined to comment on the matter, but his spokeswoman did say that she "had nothing to do with the book's cancellation."

Hmm…

At the same time, Katie also has a book that just recently came out, named Groundswell, which is a fiction novel about a young woman recently divorced from a superstar actor.

Sounds like she may have something to do with the delay of Joel's novel, but who knows.

What do U think? Did Katie stop Billy's memoir from happening?
