In his memoir he went into details of his alleged relationship with the Oscar award winner and how he met his backstage on one of His concerts.
He said she "flirted" with him in his dressing room and that he then tried to pursue dating her at the beginning of the 2000s.
However, Portman closed the dating appointments and said she found him "creepy" back then.
"I was surprised to hear that he characterized the very short time that I knew him as dating because my memory is that a very elderly man is scary with me when I just passed high school," the mother of two in an interview with Harper's Bazaar UK.
"That he used this story to see His book was very disturbing to me," she said in part. "That was not the case. There are many factual errors and inventions. I would have liked him or his publisher to come out to check."
Initially, Moby stated that she succeeded in her opinion, but then backtracked and wrote an excuse that he wrote on social media.

"I also fully acknowledge that it was really inappropriate for me not to let her know about her inclusion in the book in advance and just as inappropriate for me not to fully respect her reaction."
