DISNEY DILEMMA: CUT KEITH FROM 'PIRATE' MOVIE AFTER BOOK TELL-ALL?
Thu Oct 21 2010 17:09:46 ET
DISNEY executives are sweating it out as salty details of an upcoming book written by rocker/actor Keith Richards leak and splash.
The Rolling Stones guitarist has reprised his role as Captain Teague in the next installment of DISNEY'S 'PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN' franchise.
But now executives fear the rocker's shocking admissions in his new book, LIFE, may cause a firestorm and ignite a backlash around the family-friendly Magic Kingdom.
Among the concerns, Richards appears to detail how to safely get stoned: Use 'high-quality drugs' in moderation!
Richard writes: "It's not only the high quality of drugs I had that I attribute my survival to. I was very meticulous about how much I took. I'd never put more in to get a little higher. That's where most people f**k up on drugs."
One well-placed entertainment source explains that Snow White may end up dumping her Dopey!
"They very well could end up cutting Keith out of the new movie over this," claims the insider.
The book reached #2 on AMAZON's hit list late Thursday.
I am not sure what Disney's problem is. They hired him knowing what he was all about, the rumors of his rock and roll lifestyle and now they are going to get their panties in a wad because he is admitting some things in his book?
If they were so worried about this then they should not have hired him in the first place.
