Who Breaks a Butterfly upon a Multi-picture Deal?

Matt Drudge breathlessly reports, “Disney Dilemma: Cut Keith From ‘Pirate’ Movie After Book Tell-All?”

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.


Hard to believe Keith was able to keep his clean-cut choirboy image preserved for so long, but man did he have the producers — not to mention the rest of the world — completely fooled about his chemically-fueled offstage habits when they asked him to appear in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End back in 2007. (I’ve heard rumors that Jerry Garcia also indulged in white powdery substances from time to time as well, but I’m sure this is just hearsay.)
