But couldn't he clarify the scope of their relationship in an adult, respectful way? He doesn't have to go all TMZ, if there was a romantic relationship between the two, there would be nothing scandalous about that. It is life. Just a quick note on Years of Refusal, 2009. That was a lifetime ago in the Morrissey universe! He has burned through countless associations in those 14 years. I don't know it just seems weird that no one has ever talked about being with Morrissey. That just never happens with other celebrities, surely we can agree on that.Just a fact-check here, Johnnie, but Jake Walters photographed Morrissey for the excellent Years of Refusal cover, c. 2009, so "not been in contact with for 30+ years" is incorrect. They appear to have remained friends after having lived together, so probably Walters does value loyalty over a kiss-&-tell paycheck. Anyway, Autobiography already tastefully indicates a physical intimacy to their relationship in the 90s. Maybe it was just chaste spooning and shirtless shoulder rubs; we don't need Jake Walters to describe every detail in a sleazy My Time With Morrissey thing, but there was obviously a homoerotic dimension to it beyond just your normal male/male friendship.
