Former Smiths' frontman Morrissey has pulled plans to publish his autobiography after what he described as a "a last-minute content disagreement" with his publishers Penguin.

The memoirs, which would lifted the lid on his upbringing in Manchester and his relationship with former songwriting partner Johnny Marr, was scheduled to come out next week.

A statement on a fan website, called True To You, said: "Although Morrissey's Autobiography was set to be available throughout the UK on September 16th, a last-minute content disagreement between Penguin Books and Morrissey has caused the venture to collapse. No review copies were printed, and Morrissey is now in search of a new publisher."

A spokeswoman for Penguin said there would be no comment on the statement.
