Legal documents were filed in London’s high court this week, and the Independent reports, “The documents state that John agreed to remove certain passages before publication of the book, but Blauel, a German-born sound engineer, claims that the comments triggered long-standing mental health problems.”

John and Blauel married in 1984 and divorced in 1988. John has yet to publically comment or release a statement regarding the lawsuit.
