Morgan's suit had featured a huge number of sections that alluded to him and demanded they don't included anything yet "simple tattle and of vulgar interest."

In February, the "Dream" songstress' 59-year-old sister, Alison Carey, additionally sued over the journal. That case is as yet forthcoming.
