Hyperion cancels book by Elizabeth Gilbert's ex

Michael Cooper, ex-husband of best-selling author Elizabeth Gilbert—of Eat Pray Love fame—will not be publishing his side of the story. At least not yet. Cooper had struck a deal with Hyperion to write Displaced, his version of the divorce, but the New York Post reported this morning the project has been scuttled.

EW confirms with Hyperion spokeswoman Marie Coolman that “Hyperion had a deal with Michael Cooper, and the book has been cancelled.” Coolman did not give a reason for the cancellation, but the Post reported Cooper saying Hyperion wanted to “push the book in a more controversial direction,” which he said he was not willing to do.

The movie version of Eat Pray Love, starring Julia Roberts, opens Aug. 13.

      You may be paying 0% apr, but cash adcnaves cost money. They aren’t free. Why do you want to take a cash advance? Unless you are in a bind of some sort, don’t do this because you think it will boost your credit score. You have to pay a percentage of that cash advance as a fee! LOL
